TKB Trading’s Ballad Blue

Looks almost like faded denim - not the nearly-white stuff that's sold in stores (and charged for exhorbitantly) but where the piece has been washed a lot and the entire color has softened significantly. This is a straight mica with no added base mix to help with adhesion, so it will only really stay in place if you apply it over a damp base - and if you're not practiced with your brush, you may get some fallout. I love this color, though, and am glad that it appears to be a regular fixture over at TKB.
