An AMAZING two-tone iridescent powder pigment that displays a gorgeous golden shimmer when used in resin. Try it on dark backgrounds, as subtle highlights to resin artwork and in resin castings for extra glamour!

This loose interference powder looks white when viewed straight on, and the colour changes when viewed from different angles. Notoriously difficult to photograph! If you'd like larger amounts please contact us! Choose from 3 hand-filled sizes (and if you'd like even more just contact us!) :
  • Mini - between 3.5 and 6g in a tub
  • Midi - approx 50g in a tub
  • Mighty - approx 100g in a tub
Extract mica from the container using a cocktail stick or mixing stick and add to the resin mix. For more guidance on how to use mica powder, check out our video below.
Resin8 Interference Mica Powder is a high purity, cosmetic grade, pearlescent powder to add gorgeous shimmering hues to resin. When used on dark backgrounds these colours reveal the most amazing iridescence. Interference pigments are made by depositing various layers of either titanium dioxide or iron oxide onto mica particles. When light hits the surface of these particles, it is then reflected and refracted by the various layers which results in multi colours. By increasing either the thickness of the titanium dioxide or the iron oxide a broad colour spectrum range can be produced. These extraordinary colours will change when viewed at various angles.

Interference Pigments should not be mixed together but used individually. Due to their complex colour changes produced through light reflection and refraction, mixing them together will only produce white. In contrast when added to absorption pigments, which are colours that are normally darker and absorb light rather than reflect, the ever changing colours of Interference will be enhanced greatly. Amazing effects can also be created in nail varnishes and liquid bases.

Resin8 Mica Powders are:
  • 100% ethically sourced - we do not buy from mines who exploit children as workers
  • 100% pure colour - none of our mica powder contains "fillers" 
  • 100% vegan friendly - you won't find any crushed beetles in our mica!
  • 100% cosmetic grade - raw material, safe to use in cosmetics (eyes, lips, skin)
  • 100% cruelty-free - our mica has never and will never be tested on animals
  • 100% natural - made from muscovite flakes coated with ultramarines, iron oxides and natural dyes

Made from natural minerals, our high purity mica powder has a small micron size (giving great cover and dispersion, and the all-important shimmer) and you only need a small amount to create lustrous effects. Hugely versatile, you can use our mica powder in resin, art, soap-making, nail polish, card-making, body butter/wax, oil, face products, calligraphy, car paint and, of course, as an ingredient in cosmetics such as eyeshadow, lip products and blusher. Decorate the surface of candles and polymer clay and even mix it into your oil and acrylic paints. For resin artists, try mixing our mica with opaque colours to add shimmer, blend micas together to create new shades and try adding mica to alcohol spray for amazing surface effects.
