Bronze Mica: This Bronze Mica takes first place in our book. It is a true and shimmery bronze that is great for that sun-kissed look. It sparkles in clear melt and pour soap and makes the best mineral make up bronzer. To create a good color in cold process soap, we used 1 teaspoon of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap.
