Description 

Here for a limited time only. 1982 Blue Mica - For those of who love blue eye-shadow and big hair, this may take you down memory lane, when many of us grew into women and men. This ultramarine is more subtle than our Ultramarine Blue (medium), with hints of sparkly iridescence. In CP Soap, it is the ultimate early 80's blue.

Wasn't impressed
I tried this in both melt and poor and cold process and didn't get the dark blue-blue the sample shows. Can I get an idea on what you are using to eliminate the grayish blue morph.

Hi Jaime! I'm sorry this product wasn't your favorite. We're currently working on updating our website to include more specific color rates. To use this product in cold process soap, add 1 tsp. of the color to 1 Tbsp. of a light carrier oil, like sweet almond oil, and mix together thoroughly. Then, add 1 tsp. of dispersed color until you get your desired blue. To get a nice dark blue, we used 2 tsp. of dispersed color per pound of soap. For melt and pour, you can add the color directly and stir well. You can add about 1/2 tsp. of color per pound of soap if you're using a clear base, or 1.5% to 2% of the total weight if you're using an opaque base. This Talk It Out Tuesday: Colorants blog post has a lot of great information about coloring your soaps. Also, the grayish color can be caused by a discoloring fragrance. You can learn more about discoloration in this Why Did my Soap Turn Brown blog post. I'll be emailing you personally to resolve this issue!

A little goes a long way
I bought this for a Seahawk blue. SCORE! It's awesome. Not a lot is needed. I had to male a slab to cut out "12". The left over pieces I use like the color blocks. They are what I use for bluing my clear glycerine.

Blue Mica
I used this product in my cold process soap. It turned a pale green. please advise...

Hi Colleen! If your soap has a high amount of olive oil, it may turn green because of the natural yellow tint of the olive oil. You can use whiter oils in your recipe, like coconut oil and palm oil to get a nice blue color. I'll be emailing you personally to troubleshoot!

Awesome Blue!!
Okay, so I am an '80's girl, and this looks a lot like the eye shadow I used as a teen! I LOVE how it looks in my cp soap, every time I use it! I often use it with your Blue Man fragrance. I like to make the soap look like sand and water, so I don't put any fo in the blue, and heavily fragrance the rest. It darkens a bit too much, so I use TD to lighten it, and add the ground walnut so it looks like sand. The blue looks perfect as the "water" part of the soap, and since we live really close to Boise, I also use this blue when I make my Boise State Broncos soap! PLEASE keep it!! It's one of the best blue micas available!!

Beautiful Blue
I used this for my Snowflakes....I can't tell you how beautiful these turned out. I made white ones and blue ones with glitter on top. I have been looking for the perfect color...I found it. This blue is Beautiful...I must order a lot more of this before it's gone.
