I want summer to be here. The snow this weekend tells me it’s not quite ready to appear but I still made springy pastel soap in the hopes it would! These soaps are made in the Small Ovals Flexible Mold with Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base, LabColors and Super Pearly White Mica. I really like how versatile the Super Pearly White Mica is, it adds a pillow-y opaque shimmer to clear melt and pour and really dresses up the stained glass effect that LabColors give in melt & pour soap.

Mmm…I just love pastels and with the pearly mica, it’s just gorgeous!
Mica requires light to reflect and refract. When the light hits a barrier (opaque CP soap), it doesn’t perform the same shining effect as if it were in straight clear soap.
So, mica has a nice opalescent effect in CP soap but it doesn’t do quite the same depth effect and amazing shimmer as in clear soap.

Very very nice. Love the mix using Super Pearly White Mica.
I love what the mica does to the lab colors. There isn’t any chance something like that would happen in a cp soap is there?
