That makes sense. I would like to try Micas at some point. For the moment though, (until I can reasonably afford it) I am going to try the natural Colorants that I already have available. But I have some Micas picked out for some point in the future!I think micas are the easiest for a newbie. They mix easily in batter and you can blend micas for a new color. That allows you a large variety in colors with only a few mica purchases. Most micas will result in soap the color of the mica when dry (which is harder to predict with oxides and dyes). The biggest negative on micas are that they are usually more expensive and if you aren't careful you will go down the rabbit hole purchasing every new color you see.
