SUMMER SKIES - Best-selling bright, summer blue with serious hints of gold. A favourite and a real keeper!
Choose from a small tub (between 3.5 and 6g) or a large tub (approx 50g). To give you the best price possible we now fill our mica tubs by volume. All mica colours have different densities. For example, Moonkissed Nights (our black mica) is very light and only 3.5g will fill a small tub while Sapphire (a gorgeous dark blue) is heavy and it takes 6g to fill the same space! Rest-assured, the tubs you buy will always be full, and filled by hand.
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. Full MSDS available for each colour on request.
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.
