Sugar and spice and everything nice - That's what this mica is made of. There's just enough red in this mix to keep you on your toes. A little bit of sass to the sweetness. Just like sugar and spice.
This color is a mix of brown and red. It reminds us of the leaves of autumn with their spicy tones setting the woods ablaze in a showy display of warm ocher tones, reminiscent of cool nights and bonfires, warm apple cider, and the radiant heat of the wood stove.
i love the richness and vibrance of this mica, my plan is to use it full strength (no TD) to take advantage of the rich full color!! I need to order more I think I'm going to LOVE it!!
This is a very good rust type color.
Sugar and Spice
I was looking for a color that I could use for a southwest inspired soap. This shade worked perfectly!
Update: "Sugar & Spice" mica in CP!!
I just wanted to quickly add to my previous review, as after having a chance to use this incredible mica in CP, I am so impressed with it! In both MP and CP, this mica is truly one-of-a-kind and absolutely gorgeous! This is a fall/winter/holiday staple if I've ever seen one, but not limited to just those seasons either! I'm a member of a FB group for fellow, unashamed mica addicts, and just a few weeks ago, a member was asking if anyone knew of a mica that would create the perfect terracotta color in soap. In CP, "Sugar & Spice" mica IS THAT MICA! I piped the top of my CP loaf with this mica, and the results were OUTSTANDING! It's the EXACT shade of rich, beautiful, baked terracotta, and I'm in love! I used Nurture's new "Fire Cider" as an accent color in my drop swirl design, and although these 2 stunning shades share toasty, sun-warmed similarities, they both bring a unique ambiance to one's crafty projects! "Sugar & Spice" carries more of a cinnamon-type undertone (with a hint of dusty-rose), while "Fire Cider" brings out more of a brick red hue... Paired together with other accentuating colors, they go together like peanut butter & toast! I LOVE this mica in MP, and am enamored with it in CP too!
Nurture is so AWESOME! Quite possibly THE MOST generous, customer-loving company I know of, because I always receive a wonderful sample in my order, and it's always something perfectly tailored to things I love or things that make my life easier! It definitely doesn't go unappreciated, and Nurture- YOU FOLKS ROCK!!! I received this BEAUTIFUL color as a gift with an order, and it felt like Nurture had been reading my mind (I've had my eye on this mica)! You're gonna laugh though because this color is so visually warm & cozy that it really DOES look like sugar & spices! So much so, that without even thinking about it, I instinctively smelled the bottle, thinking it was going to smell spicy & sweet!😂 I literally laughed out loud at myself when I did that & had to remind myself that micas don't smell! But that's how stunning this color looks! It's so perfectly fitting to its name that you almost forget it's a mica & not actual spices! I've used this color for MP embeds atop CP loaves, and it's just as gorgeous in application as it is in the jar! This shade is all things "sweetly comfy", and I absolutely LOVE it!
