Want your glass work to catch the eye? These powders can be used in a variety of ways to create sparkles inside the glass or as a mica lustre in a fused, blown slumped or lamp worked piece of glass.
Use as a powder, or try mixing with Glastac Glue and apply like paint.
Use mica with inclusion pens or flexi-glass for ultimate controllability.
Mica is a mineral based powder (frequently used in cosmetics). It does not melt at firing temperatures but rather sticks to the molten glass. For best results, use between glass layers.
We have used Bullseye Thinfire paper in combination with mica powders to create some interesting effects.
The glitter micas have very slightly larger glittery elements (but still all powder) so they are a little more 'glitzy' than the sparkle ones, which are slightly more of a pearlescent shimmer. The difference is very subtle.
