I admit, I have obsession on certain style of soaping from time to time. There was a period when all I wanted to do was layering, from simple one color gradient to complicated tri-color alternating 11 layer gradient, I was totally obsessed for awhile! It seems like lately I've switched my obsession to the soap top decoration, to be more specific, the use of sugar pearls and oil mica swirl. What is oil mica swirl you ask? It is simply mixing body safe mica or glitter with little oil to drizzle over the soap top then either swirl it with a stick or spoon. After soap sets up hard, the oil you use to mix the mica gets absorbed into the soap and creates a trace of shimmery mica or glitter behind for some bling bling! Normally when you mix shimmery mica into soap batter you get the coloring but not the shimmer or glitter. By doing oil mica on soap top you can add a lot more visual interest to the look.
