Bronze Mica: This Bronze Mica takes first place in our book. It is a true and shimmery bronze that is great for that sun-kissed look. It sparkles in clear melt and pour soap and makes the best mineral make up bronzer. To create a good color in cold process soap, we used 1 teaspoon of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of 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.

Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Tina! I'm sorry you were disappointed with this color. We love the Bronze Mica and the beautiful and shimmery bronze hue it gives our products as shown in the Shine Bright: Bronze Series + Bronzing Lotion Recipe. I will email you personally to discuss this further!
