I’ve been trying out mica from The Concervatorie. I keep trying new colors (I get small samples to test…then the ones I’m loving I’ve been buying larger amounts in). Well I have two yellows I currently use. One is a neon yellow from BB (which gives a nice deep yellow. The other is a labcolor which is so blindingly bright I don’t use it that often. I wanted a really nice bright cheery yellow.
So, I tried a couple different yellow micas from The Concervatorie. When I got my “Lemon Drop” I was in love. It was the perfect color I was looking for! However any soap maker knows that CP soap can do wacky things to colors. So I tested them in a small batch I poured that I was going to cut Easter eggs out of. When I mixed the soap and mica my color turned ORANGE. Bright orange! (I actually really loved the color so I wasn’t too disappointed because I figured I’d just use the mica when I wanted an orange color).
Well the next morning when I got up and uncovered the soap my orange was half orange…half yellow! And the yellow was turning into the exact color I wanted!
So, hoping that this would happen again I made a large batch of Easter cupcakes! Pictures below!
