Blue Cold Process Soap Test

When I made the soap with the Blue Oil Soluble Color, I ran into a couple of surprises. First when the color was added the soap turned a blue color. Then it turned a murky grey then a bright pink. I nearly dropped the immersion blender! I poured the soap into the mold while it was still bright pink. As the soap cured it became grey again. Then it became purple in color! Come with me to the kitchen to achieve this gorgeous and shocking color.
