The plumage of a male peacock trying to get the attention of the lady birds gets the attention of this lady! There is something fantastic about the showy display of the male struttin' his butt in a proud and glorious display of feathery goodness.
If the sun hits his tail feathers just right you can see a stunning display of iridescent greens and blues - The kind that can only be truly mastered by nature. However, this mica comes very close, with its deep hue of sparkling blue with just the right touch of green.
CP: Mix 1 part color with 1 part oil then add to soap.
MP: Mix mica in 91% rubbing alcohol then add to soap base.
HP: Add micas toward the end of the cook to retain the most color.
Avoid green and yellow oils. The whiter the base, the brighter the color! Gelling soap makes colors pop. Read our FAQ section for more info on using colors.
Bath Bombs (if safe for use): Use polysorbate 80 when using mica to color bath bombs. This will help disperse the color and prevent a powder ring around the tub.
