Have you had the chance to explore Finnabair’s Mica powder yet? If you’re new to the world of mica powder, it might initially appear somewhat intimidating. However, rest assured that using mica powder is remarkably straightforward and incredibly versatile.
But first, what exactly is mica powder? It’s essentially finely ground mica mineral powder, imbued with natural iridescence. As an artistic medium, it serves as an excellent alternative to traditional glitter, boasting a diverse array of colors while still leaving behind a captivating sheen. Finnabair’s mica powder are conveniently available in color-coordinated sets, ensuring you always have a perfectly matched color palette at your disposal.
The applications for mica powder are numerous and varied. You can lightly sprinkle it onto adhesive or a medium just before it sets. Incorporate it into resin to infuse your castings with vibrant hues. Alternatively, blend it into a clear medium and use it as a paint on your project. Don’t hesitate to experiment with color combinations to achieve your ideal aesthetic, as mica powder blends seamlessly with a wide spectrum of mediums. Whether you’re working with gesso, acrylic paints, or simply mixing it with water, mica powder proves to be a versatile and exciting addition to your creative toolbox.

Today we are sharing projects using Finnabair’s Mica Powders
Tip1: Make your own texture paste – Mix “White Sand” texture paste with “Mica Powders” to get beautiful grainy colored texture paste.
Tip2: Make your own metallic paint – Mix “Mica Powders” with “Acrylic Fluid Medium” to create beautiful metallic paints.
I started by applying prepped texture paste(Tip1) through the “Mind Games” stencil on the acrylic ATCs. I kept them aside for drying and started prepping the “In the Garden” chipboard, gear and dragonfly mould embellishments with the paint I had prepared(Tip2). Once dried, I highlighted the mould embellishments with the white gesso.
Then I started creating the composition by layering the gear and the dragonfly embellishment in the center of the base. Then I layered the chipboards on the left side of the composition. I then added “Coffee Break – Chai Tea” flowers and inserted fussy cuts from “Golden Coast” in between the layers.
To adorn the project, I added memory hardware pearls, art stones and sequins. I then added art pebbles and white gesso splatters.
To finish the project, I added “Apricot Honey – Deep Love” paper to the base.
Hope you like the ATCs, Happy Crafting!” -Veena
