: 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.
