Vintage Grey Mica: Use this to get an excellent sophisticated gray in your clear soaps. In white soap, this turns a flat gray (as there is no light to reflect and refract).Safe for use in lip balms and eye shadows
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.

I wanted a platinum silver. Mixing one part of Vintage Grey with two parts white sparkle mica gave me the light shimmery silver I wanted. Super easy to use and very versatile. Thank you for such great products.
I used this mica in melt and pour soap to give a shimmery metallic look to some Star Wars themed soaps that I made. It was easy to use and the result was nice. In clear soap, you get a nice shimmer. I tried some in white soap and the effect was interesting too. It yielded a more matte grey. The mica came packaged in a clear jar with a screw top lid.
Mixed with Silver you get a true silver color. I love to mix those two together.
