Seriously underestimated - Koi is an unsung hero, a seriously underestimated color. In the bottle, koi is well a little coy, she is hiding her true beauty. She has a hint of pink in the container. But Boy Howdy watch her do her stuff in CP. An absolutely STUNNING orange in CP.

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.

- Usage rates can be varied to lighten or darken to create your desired hue. These amounts create bright colors with no colored suds.
- Sample bags contain one generous teaspoon (approx. 3-4 g).
- To use in bath bombs or other bath products (water applications), we recommend using polysorbate 80 at a rate of approximately 2% of your total batch weight (dry and wet ingredients). This should allow the color to disperse evenly and eliminate mica from floating on the water's surface or leaving a ring of color around the tub.
My sun sank too low when I set it in, but it was my first embed.
I used only Koi for the sun and blended a little with the Taxi Cab and worked up to Voodoo and a little leftover Silverfin at the top.
Only Mad Micas in my soap. Love these colors!!
