I've been using this mica for Christmas melt and pour soaps, and I love it. It gives a beautiful, shimmery gold color.
This looks really nice in soap, and I like it a lot. Though it is a bit messy to work with!
This is among my favorite gold micas for dusting and/or painting on top of cold process soap, or using for lines and veining. Very true sparkly gold, without a patina.
I dusted this on top of a loaf of gold, frankenscense and myrrh scented CP soap and it is just lovely. I added rooibos tea into half the soap batter and this mica into the other half and made layers; then with the dusting of gold sparkle mica on the top, it is the perfect Christmas soap. It gets comments at every booth. It is also pretty dusted lightly on cube soaps with Apple Jack N Peel fragrance or orange clove fragrance in them. We used a soft paintbrush to apply it lightly on the finished soaps and it gives a beautiful shimmer in the light.
This is a nice, versatile mica.
