We have studied the effects of finite size on the two flavor colour superconducting state. Since the baryon number in the BCS state is only fixed on average, we have projected the state over a fixed baryon number. The resulting state has been then projected over a colour-singlet state, by integrating over the colour group manifold. The effects of both projections have been evaluated numerically.
