Merlot (Crimson) Sparkle Mica: Just right for mixing with Berry Wine, AppleJack Peel, or any time you need an incredible rich red. To create a good color in cold process soap, 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
Ingredients: Botanical Name: Mica, Iron Oxide (CI 77491)Common Name: Mica, Iron Oxide
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Heather! Our Merlot Sparkle Mica can make the lighter color in the sample of cold process soap shown above or it can make an incredible rich red depending on how much you use! We used 3/4 tsp colorant to achieve the lighter results, you can add more to get a darker color. For more on this mica and other tones we've created using it check out our Sunday Night Spotlight: Merlot Sparkle Mica blog post. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Cindy! I'm so glad you love our Merlot Sparkle Mica! The reason it turned that color in your Shea Melt and Pour Base is because it is a white base. When you mix a color into an opaque base, like the shea, it will lighten the color. Just like mixing white paint with red, you would get pink. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
