: : Does anyone have any tips on having lye soap stay a true red? I have been using red crayons and red wax chips to achieve the red color, but as soon as i add the lye to my oil it causes it to turn an yucky orangey broweny color that is horrible. thanks
: You may get better results if you melt the crayons and add them to the mix at a light trace. Lye tends to eat everything it touches, color included. At a light trace it is less potent and should not affect the color as much.
