Be the only one in your neighborhood with custom colored glitter! It’s easy to do and you only need a couple of ingredients! So grab your Iridescent Glitter, Mica and Mini Scoops and get ready to make dazzling glitter in any color of the rainbow!
The concept is super simple. Just combine 1 mini scoop of mica (any color) and 1 tablespoon of iridescent glitter. Mix until fully incorporated.
Above, I made shimmering green glitter using shamrock green mica. I also made a classic yellow glitter using yellow mica. But wait, there’s more…

Thanks. I thought it might so I thought I would ask anyway. But now I can create glitter for other crafting projects.
The color in the glitter colors the soap so the glitter sort of separates out from the color, yes.
Lori Stoia says
Can these be used in soap? Would the glitter and the mica separate?
Ha ha, Debbie you are so funny! Yes, it's a real leaf. Amber picked it up on her walk to work and we were so excited with how well it worked in the photo shoot =))
I am so thrilled that everyone is appreciating this tutorial. It makes me feel very warm and fuzzy.
Was just ordering glitter. How fun. Can't wait for it to get her so I can play!
Now why didn't I think of this when I was looking for some bright glitter and only had fuschia and white? Thanks for the info.
The shredded glitter with liquid labcolor could be "nuts" on top of a soap cake or cupcakes, or…
Thanks so much for sharing…who knew? It will be fun to be able to do on my own…are you going to share how to do that leaf soap too? Hint…hint… (Is it a real leaf?) It's simple yet elegant at the same time!
What a neat idea. I've been using my premade glitter that I purchased but also have iridescent that I can play with too.
How do you get the spakles incorporated throughout the soap? I have the natural and clear melt and pour from Brambleberry but find that the glitter all sinks to the bottom when I put it in my soap.

oh my, now we have to play!
I never ever thought of this and never knew it possible.
i hope BB has plenty of iridescent glitter ready for all of our orders!!!!!!
That is really cool!
Lori Stoia says
This great! Because of special minimums to order this could save me alot of money buying glitters, I can create my own!
This is extremely handy, as I just got my Glitter Sampler Pack in today! ^_^
