Golden Buddha Gold Mica


Regular price $ 1.50

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

The famed Golden Buddha was discovered in 1957 when a group of monks were relocating their Monastery in Thailand. They noticed a large crack in what they thought was a clay Buddha. Further inspection of this crack revealed that the Buddha was in fact made of solid gold. Historians believe that it had been covered in clay hundreds of years prior to protect it from an attack by the Burmese army.

It was an incredible discovery.

Imagine our pleasure, then, that we didn't have to wait hundreds of years to discover our Golden Buddha! It is most definitely a treasure, and we are so excited to bring you this magnificent gold. It’s just exquisite; reminiscent of the gold jewelry found in Thailand.

Whatever medium you choose; soap, resin, make up, etc., this mica will not disappoint.

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.

Golden Buddha of my heart!

When you think of a golden Buddha you can picture a bright, gleaming, figure. This is the golden color I was looking for. It’s not a neon yellow that would hurt my eyes, but a perfect unity of golden splendor! This is a staple in my color world!
