HOW TO GET THE MOST FROM THIS eCLASS:
The Text document and the slide show are coordinated to go together. To get the most out of this eClass, we recommend that you print out the 13-page text document and while studying it, refer to the color slide show to see the pictures of the colors that you are reading about. Printing out the color slide show is optional, but be aware that it will take *A LOT* of ink and the colors produced by your printer may not match the colors you see on the screen.

Color with Confidence Class Description:
Many people make good handcrafted soap that feels great on the skin. But what sets yours apart from the rest? Does your natural soap end up a shade of tan, off white or gray? A beautifully colored soap attracts attention and practically sells itself. Do you know the difference between dyes and pigments? Do oxides morph or bleed in soap? What’s a lake color? After studying this eClass you’ll choose colors for your soap confidently and have predictable outcomes. By controlling and playing with color, you can easily turn your ho-hum bars into mini-works of art.
Learn from Lori Nova Endres, two-time award winner and three-time speaker at the Handcrafted Soapmakers Guild conferences, the pros and cons of colors used for soapmaking like Pigments (Oxides, Ultramarines), Dyes (LabColors, Soapalooza, Gel Tones), Lakes, Neons, Pop Micas, and last but not least, the Naturals (Clays, Herbs & Spices).
You'll read about (on the Text Handouts) and see (on the Full Color Slide Show) results of the 77 different colors tested in Cold Process (CP) Soap in all the above categories. CP soap is the most difficult and unpredictable of all the soap making processes due to the interaction between the sodium hydroxide (lye) and the colors themselves.
The information you receive in this eClass will also help you color ALL COSMETICS. Once you understand what makes each of the colors different you should be able to better predict how they will react in different mediums. It is my hope that this eClass will not only inform, but also inspire you!
NOTE: This class was originally developed for the Handcrafted Soapmakers Guild annual Conference in Palm Springs in May of 2009. Lori Nova Endres presented this information to an audience of about 70 soap makers.
