Antique Blue Mica: This mica shimmers and shines beautifully - it's a dual colored mica; one side of the eensy teensy platelet is blue and the other is gray creating a mica that is great when you want an alternative to food color blue. I've had good results with this mica not bleeding. To create the color in the sample of cold process soap above, we used 1 teaspoon of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap.

NOTE: This color goes gray in cold-process soap.

Safe for use in eye shadows  

To use this mica in Melt and Pour Soap: Wet the mica with rubbing alcohol until a liquid slurry is made. This usually is about a 1:1 mix of mica and rubbing alcohol. Add the desired amount of the slurry to the melted soap and stir to combine.

To use this mica in Cold Process Soap: Combine the mica with a light, liquid oil such as sweet almond or sunflower oil. Mix the mica at a rate of 1 Tbsp of oil to 1 tsp of mica. Increase the amounts as needed. Add this color mixture at trace.

silly me!
Like Rhonda, I forgot about the CP warning. I wanted a dark blue, light blue, white and black swirl. I got a black, white, and light and dark grey swirl. I haven't cut the soap yet, but it looks like it's going to be really nice in spite of my mistake! I'll have to try it in M & P. The color is quite stunning!

Beautiful colors!
I have only used the Antique Blue Mica in melt & pour soaps, but in the clear m&p it comes out a beautiful, sparkly dark blue and in the Goat's Milk m&p it comes out as a rich, medium slate blue. I made up 4 men's shaving kits using this color including clear base shaving pucks and goat's milk body soaps - all 4 men commented favorably on both colors. Very masculine-looking in the kits they got. When I run out I'll definitely be buying more! :)

Pay attention to the color warning.
This color does turn grey in cold process soap. I completely forgot it does. Thank goodness I was using Shave & a Haircut fragrance. Its a great grey in cold process and a beautiful blue in melt & pour. Going to order more for Bubble bars.
