Mica powders in metallic hues are not real metallic pigments but mineral pigment powders with metallic oxide coatings. Since mica is mostly transparent, these metallic coatings help provide an added metallic color and appearance.
Mica-based pigments are also inert, non-reactive, and can not dissolve in almost any medium, making them hugely versatile! You can use our micas with epoxy resin, UV resin, acrylic paints, calligraphy inks, car paint, and even cosmetics such as eyeshadow, lip products, and blush. You can even decorate the surface of candles and color polymer clay with them.
Mica powder (and MEYSPRING mica pigment powders especially) are renowned for their shimmery metallic hues and pearlescent effects.
