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
