"This is the perfect blue! Love this in CP and absolutely no morphing. Just so vibrant! Perfect for ocean themed soap!" - Susan
If you haven't been to Key West, then you must've seen the pictures or postcards! The brilliant blue water that surrounds you as you drive from Key to Key, headed across 7 Mile Bridge, heading to the ultimate destination: Key West.
This mica has an ethereal shade of blue that has a subtle, silvery radiance that reflects the light and enhances its already vivid hue. It makes us want to grab our sunscreen and hit the beach for a swim or a relaxing afternoon on a chaise.

So beautiful to use in a beach inspired soap
I wanted to make a blueberry lemon CP soap. My blueberry fragrance oil was supposed to have a very small vanillin content. But sadly it was just enough to morph the color of the soap to teal. Prior to adding the FO, however, the mica turned the soap batter an awesome blue! I definitely plan to try again with a non-vanillin containing scent and I'm sure the color will be beautiful!
Definitely a keeper and a staple in my mica collection.
Love the color so pigment
