Copper Sparkle Mica: Great for those darker fall colors and perfect for some of our Holiday Fragrances. To create the color in the sample of cold process soap above, we used ¾ 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.

Gorgeous Copper in CP
This is an absolutely beautiful copper color. I've used so many different copper micas from a variety of suppliers and so far they have been very brown. I just ordered another pound of yours because it is perfect. I use this in cold process soap.

Poor packaging
Hello, First I want to say that I love Brambleberry! If not for Brambleberry, I probably would not be the soap addict that I am (that's a good thing). But... When I received my activated charcoal order, there was charcoal over everything in my order, including the clothes I had on when I opened the package. I said, "mistakes happen" and didn't say anything. But... I just received my order for copper sparkle mica and the same thing happened. Sparkle mica is everywhere, except on my clothes (I do learn from some mistakes). Like I said, I love Brambleberry and really do want to continue ordering the majority of my supplies from you but I need to suggest you work on improving your packaging for mica's and activated charcoal. Thanks for listening - Nancy Alexander

Hi Nancy! I'm sorry your Copper Sparkle Mica arrived to you spilling out of the jar. We really appreciate your packaging feedback! I will email you directly to resolve this issue.

Bright copper color
I really like the color on this, and it sparkles nicely if you add enough to the melt and pour goats milk base is what I use. If you add a layer of Clear base it really sparkles nicely too!! Great for the holidays and goes nicely with Pumpkin Spice!

Very nice overall
I think this is a really cool color and is very attractive. I used it in M&P soap and it came out great. The next day however, one side of the bar started to "sweat" the powder off. This may not be from the mica itself. It may be from a poor reaction with rubbing alcohol. I really don't know. Actually if anyone knows why the soap would sweat like that without even using it, I would love to hear why. But still, I really like the color.
