    I am working on Christmas presents and this is for a friend that is crazy for Purple. I soaped with Bramble Berry's Rose Quartz and it behaved beautifully and smells amazing. I think it smells a bit like Love spell. 78644308_974929026210337_681767526425690112_n.jpg

    Beautiful Lynn! How to you get your purples so purple? Mine often end up on the grey side.

    Would you believe this is POP Mica and it is years old (hope it doesn't go off lol) I purchased the biggest bag and have been using it forever. I always start with a bit of td in my batter first and add my purple to it. I have just received a few purples in a sample set from Workshop Heritage so will be interesting to see how they go. Those first POP Micas were soooooooo bright :)

    OMG!! I cannot believe there are still pop micas out there!! I wish I had known they were going away, I would have bought a big bag too! :-D I LOVED them! I don't think there will ever be a perfect replacement for them...how very cool you still have some! By the way, beautiful soap! :)

    They're not available anymore, I think Aussie soap supplies use to stock them, they've been replaced. They were around many moons ago.

    Luv your soaps, Lynnz! Luv your stamp! Luv, luv, luv purple! and that's the best purple soap I've ever seen by far! :thumbs:
    I agree... they were stunning and bright. TKB Trading put them out, I believe. The only micas I ever messed with and the colors of the soap were true, for the most part, to the page shots.

    Found my order in my files:
    TKB Trading, LLC August 9, 2010
    Oakland, CA 94606
    Web: www.tkbtrading.com

    Pop! Sampler (KITPopColors) - Color: Colored Micas 1
    (1 Tablespoon ea. Color) $9.00

    These were some of the very first bright mica's that hit the market. I think TK trading sold them? I splashed and bought good sized bags and have used them for what feels like forever :)
