Quest For Blue Soap

I'd tried every way I could to make blue soap and it kept evading me. I tried liquid soap dye - it didn't disperse and I ended up with blue blobs; I tried making an alkanet infusion which nearly worked but was more lavender (and has since morphed into a browny-purple because of the discolouring fragrance).

After a barrage of blue comments on the Fresholi forum, I was going to make blue soap come hell or high water. A wonderful surprise came in the post from a fellow forum member - blue ultramine. Last week I finally made blue soap (and it's still holding).
It doesn't have a "blue" fragrance but I don't care!

Blue is the colour, croaping is her game......
Just a thought, have you put a blue lens on the camera? Is this soap really brown?
'Fess up oh great croapy queen :-)

How very dare you madam Corrie! Blue lens indeed. Still, don't hold yer breath - it could go brown anytime now. :-)

How's it looking JJ? Still blue or like Dipin says, a blue lens? lol

Blue lens. Bloomin' cheek! It's still blue I'll have you know and looking set to stay that way (so far). :-)
