Cappuccino Mica: The perfect brown, this mica is rich and chocolate-y. It has wonderful blending qualities with our Copper, Merlot and Gold. 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.
Safe for use in lip balms and 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.

I used this in a batch of CP soap hoping for a lovely brown color. However, I got a lovely shade of mauve. Perhaps I didn't use enough? Nevertheless, I will try it again.
Great brown. I use this one a lot. I use it soaps and bath bombs but only a small amount in bath bombs because that's all you will need. It sparkles in soap and gives a very pretty brown. I highly recommend this one!
This mica is perfect. It sparkles! Just the richest color of brown in town.
Did I use enough adjectives? This color is absolutely stunning in clear M&P soap. It's a true chocolate brown. I made a chocolate sugar scrub soap bar and used the soapy love chocolate fudge FO and YUM-O! Add some light gold mica or the super pearly white mica and it takes it over the top to fabulousness!
For starters, I'm strictly at the melt and pour stage of my soap making, I'm completely new to it and this works for me now. Well, with my first order from BB I got a free sample of the Dark Chocolate fragrance oil. I was stumped as I could not figure out what to do with it. So, I looked for a mica. OMG, this mica goes 100% with the Dark Chocolate oil. I used the clear base (because mica just looks stunning when paired with it) and end results looks like milk chocolate with gold flecks. This just looks awesome and ... well, I wanna take a bite out of this soap, so I call it the no cal chocolate ;o)
