What is Mica Powder?
Mica powder is made from mica, a naturally occurring stone mineral composed of shiny flakes. When you take mica and ground it into a fine sand, you get (you guessed it) mica powder! The powder is used in products like resin in order to stain and tint it's natural coloring. Due to the qualitity that mica is made of, it has a pearlescent appearance that can resemble metal or glitter. When compared to a resin pigment powder’s more matte-like finish, mica shines!
On its own, mica powder is safe and non-toxic.
How to Mix Mica Powder
Our high-quality Pro Mica Powder can be combined with our epoxy resins to add a rainbow of vibrant colors to any project! In order to properly mix your mica powder, we recommend:
- Adding mica powder after you’ve mixed your resin
- Ensuring you have the time to properly combine the product and powder
- Thoroughly combining the powder with a stir stick or a drill mixer for larger quantities
- Going light on how much you use—a little goes a long way!
