    When dispersing micas, etc, in oil to then be mixed into soap batter, do you reserve a small portion of oil from your soaping oils, or do you add another teaspoon of oil to your colouring container with the mica and then mix your mica into the additional oil before adding it to the batter?

    Personal preference really. I’m using such a small amount of ‘extra’ oil, that it just adds to the SuperFat.
