How to Mica Paint on Cold Process Soap

I have used Mica powders to color my soap, but I never heard of it to use as a paint on a cold process soap recipe. Are you wondering what this technique is?  According to the Soap Queen,  Mica Painting is a fun technique that allows mica to be incorporated into cold process soap projects.  It even works with micas that normally morph in cold process soap.  Mica painting refers to adding a mixture of oil and mica to the top of wet cold process soap.  The mixture is them swirled into various patterns.  As the soap hardens, the oil is absorbed into the soap and a beautiful swirls of mica is left behind.  It usually takes a full day for the oil of the mica to sink back into the soap.  The painting will wash off once it is introduced to water.It is really cool technique that I would like to try.  If you want to see what it is all about then  check out the post titled How to Mica Paint on Cold Process Soap..
