FD&C Liquid Colours
Black Colour:
At the amount of colour we used for testing, the m&p bar is actually a very dark green (looks black but gives green lather). The cp bars are actually a very dark red.

Blue and Red Colours mixed together:
blue and red
M&P bar is actually a very dark emerald green colour.
Blue and Yellow Colours mixed together:
blue and yellow
In general with the limited testing we've done on these colours, it is hard to get a purple in m&p. The red will be progressively orange in soap until enough is added to get red. It seems to be hard to get a true red in m&p just using the red, perhaps with some blending it may be possible.

This testing was done in our soap formula which is quite white. The colour of the soap base can affect the end result, especially if it's really yellow. These photos are just to give you a general idea, many more variations in shade and colour are obtainable by using varying amounts of pigment or by blending with black oxide or titanium dioxide. Please note all the above testing in soap and photos are from prior to 2003.
