*Note: If you are wanting to make equal parts, using a scale can help achieve exact equal parts.
Starting with the Red FD&C Cosmetic Liquid Dye, add drops of dye to the base until the desired color is achieved. I was looking to get a real deep true Red, so I added roughly 20 drops of dye to the first part of the base. Use a spoon to mix very well!
After the Red part is completely mixed, move onto the blue. For the blue, I was looking for a real deep blue as well (trying to match American Flag colors), so I chose to use the Bright Blue Gel Tone Colorant. This color gave me the exact shade I was looking for. Rinse off the spoon you used for the Red, and again, be sure to mix very well!
Now for the fun part! Grab your funnel and start with whichever color you'd like. You'll be able to make just over five 8oz Bullet Bottles with each color, if you poured all equal parts. Slowly pour the mixture into the funnel, to be sure that you don't over-flow the Bullet Bottle, causing a huge mess.
*Note: If you do make a mess, simply use a wet wash cloth to wipe away the spill.
Once you have all bottles filled, cap them all off with an 8oz Squeeze Cap. I chose to use the Clear Squeeze Caps, but Bitter Creek also offers White Squeeze Caps, as well as Black Squeeze Caps. So you can mix and match to your preference.
Scent them in Fruity Loops and Gummy Bears for the kids, or Luxurious Lavender and Eucalyptus for the Adults. Since this base is so thick and creamy, using a little goes a long way! Attach a business tag to the cap with a piece of string or material so your customers know how to contact you when they run out. :)
