This week was all about warm fall colors, and featured projects made with Copper Sparkle Mica. The Caramelized Copper Brown Sugar Scrub has Copper Sparkle and King’s Gold Mica to leave a light shimmer on the skin. To exfoliate the skin, it has brown and white sugar. The scrub contains avocado butter to help moisturize skin, and Burnt Sugar Fragrance Oil for a sweet and smoky scent.
In the Spiced Copper Cold Process Soap Tutorial, mica is used to create bold lines in-between the soap layers. Copper Sparkle Mica is also dusted on the top for more sparkle and shine. It’s a simple design that really stands out. To accent the color, the soap is fragranced Spiced Amber Ale Fragrance Oil.
For more fall color inspiration, check out the Fall Project Ideas & Inspiration post. The roundup features several projects, like the sweet and spicy Pumpkin Pie Melt and Pour Bars. It also includes the Bramble Beer Soap. That recipe is made with blonde ale rather than water. Check out more ideas here.

The black soap provides plenty of contrast for the bright colors in the middle, and the frosting and sphere add a nice finishing touch on top. The colorful drop swirl pattern totally screams Halloween. For more Halloween themed soap, click through the Cold Process Spider Webs Tutorial. The Caramel Apple Soaps are another fun holiday project.
