Thank you! I love the blog, and the fact that you shared all of it with craftster Smiley

Now I feel like I could try it myself easily.

where did you get the mica and other ingredients? I would love to make this but I have no idea where to get the pigments... a beauty supply?  Undecided

You would get these supplies at a shop that sells supplies for bath & body or soaping products.

As I'm in Canada, I get my supplies from Canadian suppliers, not only to save on shipping and duties, but it's nice to shop local with people I know! Brambleberry is fantastic - we make pilgrimages to Otion, the retail store in Bellingham, two or three times a year -- and I'd highly recommend their micas and iron oxides. (I get my Dry-Flo here as well.)

If you're in Canada, I'd recommend
http://www.sudsandscents.ca
http://www.voyageursoapandcandle.com/store
http://www.soapcraft.ca
http://www.aquariusaroma-soap.com
If you're between Vancouver and Hope, B.C., you can drive to these locations!

As for the States, I've only ordered from Brambleberry, but I understand TKB Trading and Coastal Scents are good as well.

Thanks for all your kind words about the posts. I am trying to post a new recipe or concept every week because I really love sharing what I've learned about mineral make-up. It's so much fun to have 20 different colours to choose from every morning, and to know that a colour I like can be made instead of hunting through hundreds of shops to find a colour that says "Swift!" It's not a hard thing to make -- finding the perfect base, to me, was the hard part -- and it allows you to be as creative and crafting as you wish. And yes, I've thrown away my fair share of eye shadows so far. We've figured the price out and it's maybe 10 cents per batch (and those are the fancy, mica heavy ones), so it's better to throw it out and start again than get frustrated and not want to make it any more. (Although, often making a mistake can turn out to be the best colour you've ever seen! But make sure you write it down!)

I'm working on some posts about blushes and foundations right now. They're fantastic, but you only need to make one or two, unlike eye shadows!

Well, it's time to get into the workshop and get organized...My best friend is coming over this afternoon for some formulating fun, and it's still a disaster from the chocolate making extravaganza!

Super neat, I've caught the mineral makeup bug as well, but it's so expensive to buy ALL the colors I want... I think I'll be doing some projects here soon!

What would you recommend for mica and oxide colors to start? How much of each, too. I've got so many I'd like to try but I'm not sure if I should get teaspoons or ounces.
