Note: The mica will mostly wash off the first time you use it. This is normal. If you want the sparkly mica throughout the soap, you can stir it in with the colorant, or even use the brushed mica and stir some into the soap.
Another interesting effect is to cut up these simple gemstone soaps into small chunks, and use them as the base in a chunks or shreds soap project - either melt and pour or even cold process.
