I am pretty certain I saw the comment on this forum of someone who used a copper penny color but was disappointed because it was darker than they thought. They were looking for a bright new copper penny color.

I have a mica for that person to try to see if it's closer to what they were looking for. Who was it though???

I think it was Susie in the dragon's blood thread.

It was me! I was disappointed in the color of the mica from NS. I was hoping for a brighter color.

Susie, would you like to try Passion Orange from TKB? I just got 4 ounces of it because it is brighter and more orange than Copper Penny, which I also love but is different. PM me with your address if you want to try it out.

Thank you so very much! I was wondering if there was a good new copper penny color.

How are their metallics like the golds, silvers, etc?

I got them, thank you so much!!

Newbie sent a BUNCH of samples! I am eagerly awaiting some time off of work to play with them!

My son was in town the last 3 days, so I am just now getting back into the normal groove, and work was just a killer today.

Have fun! I am betting you can get just the copper look you want after messing around a bit. And maybe you can figure out how to get the heavy gold mica top! ;)

And if you do Susie, show us and share the "recipe" please?

I haven't soaped in 7 weeks. Couldn't participate in the challenge or the swap. I need some "fixes"!

Will do! I am debating on how to test everything best.
