I'm considering doing a night sky themed soap, and was wondering if anyone had an suggestions on how to make the best dark blue.

I don't really want to do black because enough black to be really black seems to always make grimy looking bubbles.

The girls are right. But don't worry about it being UM if you don't have any; use any blue in your collection. I've had luck with others, even those bluer than sky. Follow your instincts on the AC; a little goes a long way!

I just made a soap using Nurture's Klein Blue and Pearl Black micas. It worked out well. Whatever you use for black, just add a teensy amount at a time.
