Antique Blue Mica: This mica shimmers and shines beautifully - it's a dual colored mica; one side of the eensy teensy platelet is blue and the other is gray creating a mica that is great when you want an alternative to food color blue. I've had good results with this mica not bleeding. To create the color in the sample of cold process soap above, we used 1 teaspoon of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap.

NOTE: This color goes gray in cold-process 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.
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.
