Has anyone added mica to their soap dough during the kneading process?

I have as well, and also just small amounts at a time. I agree with @artemis to wear gloves. I think it also takes more mica than coloring the soap dough when it is made.

So you don’t make a slurry of any kind, just sprinkle and knead?

This video shows the soaper adding color to her soap dough around the 12:30 mark. Sometimes she adds it dry, and other times with a little oil.
