Title: pop micas
Post by: littleheartdesigns on June 08, 2012, 02:05:33 PM
Does anyone have any pop mica that I could buy.
I really want to try some bright colours in cold process soap.
Any colours, any amount just for me to try, can't find them anywhere.
And/or any other coloured mica for sale!
I have looked at all the usual sites but just hoping to sample some before I go mad and order lots of bigger amounts. So if anyone has a colour they will not use or a huge stash and can spare a bit, I will give it a happy home.
thanks ladies  :buttrf:

I'm sure pfy do a sample pack selection... if you have some ultramarines you can always add a touch of pearl white mica to that... So i would deffo get the white and just mix it with other colours to start, gold is good too....
Have you looked at GF and their sample size packs, could always be worht giving either company a call to ask for a sample. Both are very obliging.... :buttrf:

Hi Iulia
That would be fab
just let me know what you have spare and how much you'd like for it  :buttrf:

thanks ladies I have looked at all those sites but they all seem soo expensive for a titchy amount, do many of you buy micas from abroad and are they ok, they seem way cheaper in America.

I wanted pop micas (thanks Kelly may try sp's) cos I assume them to be alot brighter. Can anyone tell me how to get a bright red in cp as the last soap I did (my Rosie soap I posted a pic) started off quite bright but now its curing the red has dulled to a dull reddy browny sort of colour. Looks pretty but really wanted bright red
any ideas?

I've definitely got some of the purple and some of the green (possibly pink need to check).

Can you remind me in a couple of days? I need to bag soap for forthcoming event and I know I'm likely to forget

 ;D

Actually wasn't it the purple I sent with the moulds? Did you like it?

Hi Iulia,
I have used the green pop mica you sent me in my "daves mould experiment" I am waiting to see how it comes out after gelling. It certainly started off bright green so fingers crossed.
