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

"Absolutely Love It! Product is very rich in color, highly pigmented, and looks great! Will purchase again!"
—Angel H. (verified)

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. It's as stable as a kick drum in CP soap, and as eye-catching as a flash-pot in makeup!

Particle Size 5–25 μm
Usage Rate CP Soap 2 tsp per lb of oils
Usage Rate MP Soap ½ tsp lb of MP base
Ingredients Mica (CI 77019), iron oxide (CI 77491)
  • Usage rates can be varied to lighten or darken hue. Listed amounts create bright colors with no colored suds.
  • White MP base will always create a pastel form of the color due to titanium dioxide in base.
  • To use in bath bombs or other bath products (water applications), we recommend using polysorbate 80 at a rate of approximately 2% of your total batch weight (dry and wet ingredients). This should allow the color to disperse evenly and eliminate mica from floating on the water's surface or leaving a ring of color around the tub.
  • Sample bags contain approximately one teaspoon.
  • For mica-specific information not available on this page, please consult provided data sheets.
  • Larger sizes are available. Please email for pricing and information.

Browns generally bore me, but not Metallica!

I really like Metallica! It's not just brown, it has a depth of sparkly colors to it. I find myself wanting to use it in everything!

Kelly Sauvage
Vibrant and Rich Mica

I love Metallica! The color is rich and vibrant and easy to use. It didn't clump at all. I use it in both melt and pour (great for fall leave embeds) and cold process soap. I have mixed it with orange colored micas as well for beautiful fall colors.

Cold process soap

All Mad Micas micas are great and the only micas I use.

gorgeous shade

This is a beautiful shade of brown that looks just like the picture. It has a warmth that I haven't been able to get using cocoa powder. A really lovely shade.
