What Are Color Lab Colors?

COLOR LAB: Mad Micas colorists create hundreds of colors that don't go into regular production; here's your chance to take a peek into the lab.

Each month we'll be rolling out a new color complete with notes from that colorist's lab book and making it available for one month only.

Note: Some Color Lab colors may eventually be made part of our permanent collection.

The Color Lab selection for March, 2024 is:
Book 5, Entry 10.

Available through March 31, 2024 or until sold out.
Orange: B05-E10

What a super happy orange! This hits all the spots I was hoping for. Looks like marigolds, mandarins, apricots, carrots, candy, California poppies….I could go on and on. This is the light and bright orange we’ve been wanting to achieve!

In cold process (CP) soaps, I used 3 grams for a pound of CP soap batter - melt and pour I went with ½ teaspoon per pound of clear base and they both came out great, but very different.

The CP soap looked like a radiant circus peanut - in clear MP, it was a vibrant and punchy marigold color.

I also poured epoxy resin to see the color and it made me think of orange flavored sour hard candies. I am in love with this one.

Love it

I purchased this to make my orange slice embeds but I also added a bit of pink mica to achieve a peach color for my peach slice embeds.


I haven’t used them yet, but the colors seem so vibrant and beautiful. Can’t wait to try them out.

10 Stars!! Beautiful, vibrant color!

I’m so glad that I grabbed a bigger jar of this before it was out of stock. It’s a beautiful, vibrant orange and it works so well in CP.

Great Color

What a great color! It's super bright and a little bit went a long way. (I actually needed to tone it down with some TD, but it turned out so beautiful!). I'm so glad I got the bigger container, I will be using this a lot this fall!


Received a sample of this in a previous order. After trying it while making some Freshies, I was in love. The color is bright and sunny, like a fresh glass of orange juice from a local grove stand. So of course I had to have a big container of it!
