Resin8 Mica Powder is a high purity, cosmetic grade, pearlescent powder to add gorgeous shimmer to clear resin. The small micron size of this powder gives great cover and dispersion and you only need a tiny amount to create lustrous effects. Our mica powder is vegan friendly and ethically sourced – we do not buy from Indian mines who exploit children as workers.
What is mica powder? Natural coloured mica powder is made from mineral rocks that have been refined and purified. A complex process involving mica flakes, iron oxides and ultramarines turns these powders into the cosmetic (non artificial coloured) eyeshadow that we all know and love today. Mica powder has become increasingly popular with artists and craftspeople in recent years and we are pleased to say it provides excellent effects when added to resin.
Does it matter if it’s cosmetic grade if you’re using it in epoxy resin? No, but cosmetic grade means that the mica powder is of the highest purity and has been refined to super-high standards. Also, the lower the micron size, the more shimmer the mica powder will have. Higher micron size micas are more sparkly than shimmery and will not go as far.
Super quality, rich and dense – Resin8 Opaque Pigments will add intense colour to your resin designs. Add these glorious, vibrant pastes up to 10% by volume to clear resin. A little goes a long way! We recommend using a cocktail stick or mixing stick to get the colour out of the jars. All colours are inter-mixable – start with red, yellow, blue, black and white and mix any colour in the spectrum. Mix the pigments together first to make your desired colour (a palette knife works really well for this) and then add the resulting colour paste to clear resin. Our opaque pigments all have different densities – so although all pots are weighed to contain 30g or 100g some colours may appear more full than others.
Resin8 Metallic Pigments are shimmering, lustrous pastes that can be added to clear resin to create stunning effects. Our polychromatic metallic colour additives are perfect for use in Resin8 branded resins but work equally well in other epoxy resins, polyester, polyurethane and crystal resins, gelcoats, paints and varnishes. These pigments offer excellent resistance to fading, have a long shelf life, do not contain lead and are solvent-free!
We’re so excited about the new Reflections Eco-Glitter! Made from sheets of biodegradable mineral mica, this amazing glitter has oodles of sparkle, due to its large particle size, and we think you’ll absolutely love it. Our eco-friendly, cosmetic grade glitter is fine and soft – it gets EVERYWHERE (don’t sneeze with an open pot around). This reflections glitter collection is holographic, colour changing glitter that looks different in different lights. Sprinkle it on a dark background to watch the magic!
