Easy Color Blocks for Melt and Pour!

Introducing Color Blocks for Melt & Pour Soap by Bramble Berry Soapmaking Supplies!

We know how frustrating it can be to make a bar of soap only to find clumps of colorant once you pop it out of the mold. To help, we have created Color Blocks that allow you to color your soap easily to perfection. We’ve made them in all of our best selling colors including our non-bleeding oxides, shimmery micas and neon pigments.

Check out this video to see how easy they are to use.

For more details on the multi-pour technique I use in this Soap Queen Short see the full, detailed Soap Queen TV episode here.

  1. hee hee! How to make soap – if you have a friend or a third hand.

    Very cool though! I think the color blocks would make things super easy! :)

    Oh my gosh! How did you know that is exactly what I need? I’m abysmal at making colors blend properly in my MP soaps. :)

    • Hi Teresa!

      If you use a smaller usage rate (lighter hue), 1 color block can get you anywhere from 5-10 lbs, but if your usage rate is higher (darker hue) then it’s going to get you about 5-6 lbs.

    I am so wishing there was something like this for CP soap!

  4. Nickie says:

    Great idea! :) This is very helpful for those who don’t have sweet almond oil for the neons & for those who have trouble mixing the micas.
    Could you make your own by adding extra colorant to your soap & then pour into small molds?
    Very cool though! :) Will get some neon blocks w/
    my next order.

    I tried once a color block (not from BB) and the color I got was “light”, as the ones shown in this video. Does all the color blocks give that look? Or is because was used with clear MP?

    I tried it with clear MP & foam bath whip.

      Thank you for the vote of confidence! =) So far, we’ve been getting a really positive response to them. Yay!

  7. SweetTangerine says:

    I LOVE these colors – I have all the neon blocks! Do you know if these color blocks will work for coloring candles?

  8. Lindsey says:

    I feel silly asking this because it seems so simple, but I didn’t see anyone else ask so … what type of tool is that you’re using to scrape the pieces of the color block off with? I wanted to look online to see where I would be able to purchase one of these but aren’t sure where to start.

    Thank you!

  9. Darlene says:

    Can these color blocks be used with white M&P as well as the clear?

  10. Teresa Harada says:

    Mi hijo me regaló colores en block de ustedes, y voy a utilizarlos pronto, por eso me ha sido útil ver los comentarios, porque no sabía como usarlos. el hizo el pedido con ustedes.
