Sample bags contain one generous teaspoon (approx. 3-4 g).
A great orange colored mica. The mica is Koi fish-like in color.... a true orange with a hint of dark pink, but when this color is soaped in cold process soap, it leaves you with straight orange.
When used in clear melt and pour (MP) soap, it shimmers and captures all the gorgeous shimmer and hues. Like a school of fish in the Koi pond, this one really captures your attention.

Bath Bomb Notes
To use in bath bombs or other water applications, you must use polysorbate 80 (emulsifier) at a rate of 1-2% of your total batch weight. This should disperse the color evenly and eliminate mica from floating on the water's surface or leaving a ring of mica around the bathtub.
This INCREDIBLY versatile mica lives up to its name, and then some!! In so many ways, this color is simply jaw-dropping! First I made little "melon wedges" embeds with it in clear MP, and that's where the love affair began! It really comes to life in application and becomes the most STUNNING, richest shade of sunsetty, coraly orange (new words lol!) with reddish/pink undertones that really set this apart from any other shade of orange I've ever seen! Using those embeds, I designed a CP batch incorporating this color into my drop swirl (along with MM's "Lettuce Entertain You" mica- LOVE IT!!), and the results in CP are nothing short of breathtaking! 1tsp/ppo produced the most vibrant shade of orange, which was so impressive because orange is one of those colors I normally have to use more of to achieve richly pigmented results... Not this orange!! It's as orange as orange can be, and an orange that's not like any other shade I've used before! Without a doubt, this has earned a permanent spot in my mica collection, and I was so impressed with my Mad Micas purchase, I can't wait to come back for more outstanding colors! Thank you Mad Micas! The extra mile you went with my order did not go unappreciated- you folks ROCK!
Such a beautiful shade of orange! I made Pink grapefruit soap and used Koi with Vodoo! Just beautiful! Thank you!
A very nice dark orange. Be careful in bathbombs. Even with polysorbate, too much will stain.
This is one of the beautiful oranges I've ever used in CP!
Mad Micas are great! The colors are wonderful and work well in all my soap recipes, even my sunblock.
