How much of this would you suggest adding to 1 pound of clear melt and pour?
The Sample Size, which is a teaspoon, is the least you would want to add to a pound of soap. You could add up to a tablespoon. Here are some things to think about:
1) Nite Glow Powder is heavy. So it is really going to want to sink to the bottom of the mold. For this reason, if you want the glow "throughout the bar" you need to stir it in at a very cool temp and pour into the molds at the last possible moment.
2) Nite Glow Powder gives more glow the more you use. So, if you want the max glow, you could, for example, allow the powdre to fall to the bottom of the mold and have a soap that is mostly clear, but only the top is glowing.
3) Another option is to add glow powder to an embed and not try to color the whole bar.
Hope this helps!
