Mica Powder

 

WHAT IS MICA POWDER?

Mica Powder is a natural substance as they are occurring naturally from mineral silicate with a crystalline shine and can be in a variety of different colours from shimmering silver to dazzling gold sparkle. They are normally coated with various oxides such as titanium dioxide for providing a full range of colours.

The main difference between "Mica Powder" and "Pigment Powder" is their shine.  Pigment Powders are matte that gives out solid and rich colour while Mica Powders are shimmery and sparkling. For this reason Mica Powders shouldn't be your first choice when wanting to colour something as they will not give you a solid, bold colour on its own.  They are more effective when added to sparkle up your colour.

While creating the melt for your soap, add the power in gradual proportions. You can spray rubbing alcohol on any bubbles that rise to the top. Mix everything well and pour the soap into the mold.
