You can see an example of this block used in Clear Melt and Pour Soap above. Though it would depend on what base you're using the color in and if you're using any additives that may affect the color, like a discoloring fragrance oil.
Customer service has contacted you directly to help troubleshoot: I'm very pleased with this product. The color is wonderful but maybe I'm doing something wrong. I get lots of specks and I stir and stir and stir and still can't get rid of them.
I used this in place of the liquid nonbleeding red, which I guess is discontinued, in clear melt and pour. I tried adding very thin silvers when the soap is melted, as the soap is being melted and finally just by itself in the microwave.
I tried reheating the melt and pour to see if that would help and I quit because I was afraid of burning the soap. The best result I got was to put the silvers in a separate small bowl and microwave it unitl it melted and then add it as a liquid to the melt and pour base. I stored it in the bag it came in and it did develop little crystals sweat on the outside. Don't know if that has an influence. I'm hesitant to buy anymore until I understand what I did wrong.
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Jeanne! I'm sorry this product wasn't your favorite. We recommend shaving off thin slivers in your melted soap and stirring well. The thinner the slivers, the easier they are to melt. If it doesn't melt fully, you can pop the soap back into the microwave on 5-second bursts. I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot! No messy powders, no worrying about dispersing in glycerin or oils, and best of all no undisolved clumps on the bottoms of my soap molds.
The red is deep and rich, and I don't need to use much to get the desired affect. I make bars of soap at a time oz of melt and pour , and only need a small sliver of color block. Just remember people, white and red make pink! Read your soap base's ingredient list. The existence of such a heifer is considered a biological anomaly and very rare.
Fortunately, the ritual requires an infinitesimally small quantity of ashes. From the time of Moses, who personally prepared the first heifer, until the destruction of the Temple, only nine red heifers were prepared.
Nonetheless, this was sufficient to maintain the ritual purity of the entire nation for almost 2, years. According to Jewish tradition, there will only be ten red heifers in human history with the tenth heifer ushering in the Messianic era. But now… what could it mean for the times we live in, to have the means for purification so close at hand?
With the words of Maimonides in mind, we cannot help but wonder and pray: If there are now red heifers… is ours the era that will need them? Before entering the land of Israel after the Exodus, the heifer was burned outside of the camp.
In the days of the Temple, the heifer was taken to the Mount of Olives across a causeway built specifically for this purpose to ensure that there was no inadvertent contact with areas along the way that may have been contaminated by dead bodies.
