We now have 19 different Luster Mica Powder colors available for sale on our website!
Luster Mica Powders are a great way to add some shimmer to your next project! Each 1/2 ounce jar includes 6 grams by weight of powder. The powder has a built in binder. That means you can mix it with just regular water and it will stick to paper, chipboard, cardboard, wood, canvas, and other porous surfaces!
Here are some other ways you can use Luster Mica Powders:
• Mix with other fluid or semi-fluid mediums such as acrylic paints, gloss gel, glue, etc. You can use it to tint or add shimmer to existing colored acrylic paints.
•Mix with Encaustic Wax . (some of the powders are not stable in wax, so we advise testing it out before making a full batch)
• Mix with Resin or brush into molds before pouring
• Mix with clay or brush on top before baking
•Stamp with embossing ink and then brush the mica powder over the stamped image. Mist with a fine mist water bottle to seal in the design.
• Make your own Mica Spray mists! Make sure to only mix a little at a time, since a little goes a long way. Use warm water to help the binder and powder mix well. Let sit for about 10 minutes and then shake up. You will want to use a fine mist spray bottle for the best effects. It also helps to swirl a little between sprays since the mica will settle to the bottom. You can make multiple spray mists from one jar. I would recommend not putting any more than one grams of powder per one ounce of water.
Here’s a video covering all of the colors we have to offer. We have even more colors to be released and I will be making technique videos in the coming months!
