Magic Beans Polychromatic Mica


Regular price $ 1.50

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

Magic beans. Trade this beautiful mica for a beanstalk climb to a magical land, but make sure you save some for yourself. What may appear brown at first glance is actually a cavalcade of colors.

This mica is magic... Rays of blue and green and red shimmer in the sunlight and radiate from this full-bodied and lustrous shade. Quite spectacular. As Jack himself would agree, magic beans... a wise choice indeed!

Soap Notes

Cures an almost brick red in CP soap (see photo).

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.

Magic beans

Gorgeous multi colors in the light in CP soap. This has got to be one of my favorites! As always, mixes great in oil and no clumping.

Magic Beans

Beautiful mica can't wait to try it out in a cold process soap and bath bombs!

Great color

I got this color to make eyeshadow with and it makes a good look. For those who are afraid of bright colors, this fixes the problem. You get a darker shade with highlights of bright colors.


Awesome color.. makes for a really pretty eyeshadow


I had to try this when I saw it!
Just when you think you know "what color" it is, it shifts and you see it completely differently.
Multiple facets and such depth.
Disperses well in oil, just needs a quick shake if it's been sitting out.
Lovely on the skin as well.
