Acid Black 2
Image shown is 0.85g of product in 400g bicarbonate of soda
This dye is water soluble this means it is a different colour in dry powder from the final colour. Some people 'bloom/activate' in bicarb soda to produce the colour in their bath bombs. You can also mix with a small amount of hot water to activate before putting into your mix. The true magic happens when the concentrated dye hits the bath water and the vivid colours come alive.
The pictures in the gallery are examples of bloomed colour in baking soda and finished products using the dyes.

***The thing about Black***
You do use more than the other dyes because we are trying to get a solid black from a solid white base. This can be a steep learning curve for a beginner but it very rewarding when you finally get it right. We have files, information and Facebook group to answer any bath bomb questions and get your mixes perfect.
