Add to Favorites Reading Time: 4 minutes When learning how to make homemade soap, will you use dyes, micas, or try coloring soap naturally? There are many ways to achieve beautiful colors in your handmade soaps. Some prefer to use soapmaking resources like colored micas, oxides, and ultramarine powders to yield vibrant, consistent colors that never fade. Liquid soap colorant drops can be purchased at most major craft stores. These drops stay true to color in soap, but they often fade over time. Others prefer coloring soap naturally. This includes chopped or powdered herbs and spices, a rainbow of naturally-occurring clays, and liquids such as chlorophyll, oil infusions, or water infusions.
