The first Swatch Mania! was created in late 2013, and was updated in mid-2014. Since then, some colorants have been reformulated or discontinued, and a lot of beautiful new colorants have debuted.

More Swatch Mania! has been in the works since May of 2014, and is finally wrapped up. Whew!

What exactly is in More Swatch Mania!?

More Swatch Mania! is 52 pages power packed with over 100 swatches of colorants and tons of information about each colorant type, including:

  • 71 swatches of various micas, like Key West Blue and Oh La La! Pink
  • 24 swatches of synthetic colorants, like Yellow 5 and Red 33
  • 38 swatches of natural colorants, like Ratanjot and Manjistha
  • a brief overview of each colorant type and how to use them in soapmaking

More Swatch Mania! was made to expand on the first version of Swatch Mania! which included 52 swatches of various micas, 12 swatches of mineral pigments, 16 swatches of various clays, 7 swatches of various seeds, and 48 swatches of various natural colorants, plus a full swatch making tutorial with instructions, testing sheet template, and the formula used in swatching all of the colorants in both ebooks.

You’ll snag a PDF packed full of photos and info about using a variety of colorants for cold process soap making, all in one handy dandy resource. There are over 100 different swatches. Each individual swatch lists the supplier and usage rate, as well as any notes.

Having both Swatch Mania! and More Swatch Mania! will turn you into a glorified colorant queen (or king!) For less than 25 cents per swatch, you can see how a colorant performs in cold process soap making, that’s less than the cost of ordering colorants to try and the materials needed to swatch your own!
