The best things come in 7's. It's many peoples lucky number in fact, and our Zephyr Mica Collection contains 7 lustrous shades of shimmering natural mica powder for adding to resin. Named after a soft breeze, this colour collection is also reminiscent of the iridescence in pigeon feathers.
  • Arctic White - pearlescent satin white
  • Moonkissed Nights - back lit black with a silver shimmer
  • Pure Silver - highly sparkling true silver
  • Steely Grey - molten steel
  • Sea Smoke - pale silver with a hint of blue
  • Lilac Shimmer - soft and delicate yet strong
  • Silver Grey - light, with a gorgeous sheen
This collection contains 7 x small mica tubs or 7 x large mica tubs, depending on which size you choose. 

Did you know... you can also use mica powder with polymer clay (either dry over unbaked clay for an all-over shimmer or mixed in to create iridescence throughout the clay) and as our mica is cosmetic grade, you can also use it as eye shadow!

Resin8 Mica Powder is a high purity, cosmetic grade, natural 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. Full MSDS available for each colour on request.

What is natural 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.
