Metallica Copper Brown Mica


Regular price $ 1.50

Sample bags contain one generous teaspoon (approx. 3-4 g).

This aptly named mica shares many of the qualities of the band it's named after. The heavy metal rock band is known for its fast tempos, lengthy instrumentals, and bold musicianship.

Metallica mica reflects the light to reveal a coppery red metallic sheen.  A closer look exposes an intricate balance of sparkle and depth, reminiscent of the face-melting solos at a Metallica concert.

Soap Notes

Usage rates in Cold Process soap: 1-2 tsp. per pound of oils.

Usage rates in Melt & Pour soap: 1/4-1/2 tsp per pound of M&P base.

Adjust these calculations to lighten or darken your desired hue. These amounts create bright colors with no colored suds.


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 love this color in my cp soap. Another winner!

True copper!

Used in CP soap at 1 tsp/ppo and it is stunning! Kept its sparkly copper brightness. I wish I'd made the whole batch this color. Will definitely buy more!
