The mica is finally for sale. Please peruse the listings on Etsy but DON'T place an order via Etsy. If you PM me it's a bit cheaper (larger amounts) than Etsy. For those in mainland UK P&P is FREE for a limited period. For those not in the UK let me know what you want and I can work out the lowest P&P.

Just PM me with what you would like and you can pay via Paypal (I'll do an invoice) but I'd prefer internet bank transfer if possible.

Fiona, this may be a bit of a silly question, but what do you package the mica in?
I've had some in little jars, some in cheap self seal bags and the ones for TKB come in good quality bags which self seal but also can stand on their own (which is very helpful).

Just trying to think about whether I'd need to decant it or not   :buttrf:

I use plastic ziplock bags as it helps to keep the costs down for the customer. Hope that helps.Smiley

I will order over the weekend. Could you show the volume of 10g and 50g somehow? I think when I ordered the pops it was 1oz, which is around 30g? But I can't remember.
Also, what is the recommended usage rate for decent colour in CP?

The ones that I sell I have tested in CP soap and non of them bled and the colours didn't morph. I even roasted the soap that I tested them in in the oven and they held up.
