So...I had a special order for some M and P pink peeps soaps from my horticulture client.In previous non pink batches I used both micas in glycerine and already incorporated liquid colorants.No problem. I'm now on my 3rd batch of pink trying to get an even color...the prior batches all had what appears to be not quite fully incorporated mica...and of course those are on the visual side of the mold. I;m on batch 3 now and added more glycerine to the mica to see if I had it too concentrated and mixed the cr*p out of it...I'll let you know if this works out but in the meantime, before all you mavens are watching the finale of Downton Abbey, I'd thought I'd hear from the experts how best to prevent this in the future...Just wondering is it best to incorporate the glycerine and the mica the prior night and let it "soak" up the glycerine more thoroughly...
