Heavy Metal Gold Mica: This bright gold has the slightest shimmer to it and looks amazing in clear melt and pour soap. Check out some soap Anne-Marie made with our Heavy Metal Gold Mica here. This mica also makes a neutral looking eye shadow with a little pizazz. We can’t get enough of our Heavy Metal Gold! To create the color in the sample of melt and pour soap above, we used ½ teaspoon of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap.

Note: Because of the bronze powder this mica can cause DOS (dreaded orange spots) in your soap.

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.

Safe for use in eye shadows

Had Bleeding
I used this Heavy Gold Mica in cold process soap and it bled into the other colors of the soap. Anywhere the gold was in the soap, it bled about a quarter of an inch into the other colors. It looks awful so I am not going to try to sell that batch. I will still use this mica, but will make sure I use it alone or as a solid colorant.

Gold Mica
I have used this mica on top of melt and pour bee soaps to define the bee. It looks beautiful and people seem to love it. My problem is that the sparkle and beauty turn into a dull ugly color in a couple of days. I hesitate to sell these soaps now because of the change in color.

Color didn't turn gold
On my cold process the soap turned a green color. Not sure why that happened.

Hi Jordan! I'm sorry this product wasn't your favorite. We've found it results in a beautiful gold in melt and pour soap. I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot!

Added this to a clear mp soap base colored with hydrated green chrome, absolutely beautiful. Shimmery and jewel like (I used a lot, though.)
