This colour is just so beautiful. Bloomed it is a lovely bright sky blue which goes well with everything but in the water it is just out of this world. It has a great almost green blue hue and makes the water look so much more like the tropical ocean water we all really want to bathe in. Bulk sizes for bulk savings! this is a fantastic super strength water soluble dye.

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, finished products using the dyes and the colour in the water.
