"Velvet Dark Grey - This is a deep and velvety grey that has the most gorgeous shimmer and depth. I've used it in my cp soap and started using it with my paintings. I love all these micas for my art work. This is my favorite dark grey. A winner !! It will have a permanent spot on my craft cabinet. will not disappoint!" - Brianna
As strong and bold as its diva namesake, this dark grey mica is a complicated mix of black with smoky silver undertones.
Very cool, very slinky, very sexy.

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.
I used this for CP soap dough "Tiffany Co" heart charms and the base of a CP soap cupcake. Loved the soft grey color. Mixed well and color stayed true.
Nice, deep silvery gray. Easy to mix and turns out exactly the shade I saw in cp soap batter. This color was used in a private class by a first-time soaper as a background color contrasted with golden yellow and deep maroon. She and I were so pleased. Much better color than activated charcoal. Highly recommend.
I tried Macy Gray as soon as it arrived for the bath bombs I was working on, and although it was a little bit darker than I thought it would be, it came out looking awesome!!!!
