Brick Dust is one of the stars of the show in our True Red Trio. Adding this great mica to Queen of Hearts Mica and our Orange-Red Neon makes a stunning and beautiful true red in soaps!

Since this is a darker red, it can be used at 1 tsp. per pound of oils in cold process soap with great results! As a general rule, darker colors are great at 1 tsp. per pound and lighter colors can be used at 2 tsp. per pound of oils for the most vibrant results.

If using in bath bombs, add polysorbate 80 at half your oils. For example, if your oil = 3 teaspoons, use polysorbate at 1.5 teaspoons. This will help prevent a color ring around the tub.

This turned out perfectly for my nature-inspired arch soap. It is the darkest red in the pic.
