no don't use food coloring..it will color things it shouldn't. Don't need coloring anyway..use some coffee grounds, oatmeal or dried rose petals for interest.

I'm sure Soap Crafters has recipes and ideas. just do a google or other search engine search...

teachsoap.com...has great info..

True, food coloring will not work well. It is not made to dissolve in soap. I recommend some tint in MP soap, if it is a clear soap. (If you drop the soap and can't see it, it is a slipping hazard.) I like the powdered colorants from Brambleberry.com. They are less messy than liquids and last a long time. They are also quite appealing to the eye.
