This is what I'm hoping to eventually achieve for my body parfaits - luxuriant body butters with alternating layers of color made by adding micas. I have not been successful in the past. I tried melting a little bit in the warm butter before it set and sucking it up in a pipette to sort of inject it into the already poured batch in the container. That didn't work so I tried "pushing" the dry mica into the container once it was poured and that didn't work any better. So now I'm going to try melting the mica once more but letting the 1st layer set a little bit before pouring a layer of colored butter and then repeating this pattern by rewarming the remaining blend each time. There simply must be a way to do this! I suspect this newest effort is going to end up with layers that may look pretty but if you were to turn the pop-up container upside down, they'd probably fall out in three or four separate pieces.
