This is the really neat old-fashioned, original glitter that was used for holiday decorations of all types since the end of the 19th century. The white form of mica glitter is usually used to imitate snow or to add an iridescent glittery effect. We can only imagine what you might be able to create with BLACK MICA!
Mix mica with paint, ink, glue, any artistic media. Sprinkle it on your holiday decorations. Grind it. Mix it with a tiny amount of any powdered pigment (including the cost-effective tempera pigment) to give it color. Experiment. Have fun!
- Sampler Jar - in a reusable plastic jar that measures about 2 inches in diameter and 2 inches high. The mica is quite lightweight, so a little goes a long way!
- Large - in a zip lock bag - approximately 4-1/2 ounces
So, you'll have plenty for lots of projects. For Hallowe'en, Gothic and other projects with a black or midnight theme, our Black Mica might be just perfect!
Mica is not toxic in its natural state, but it can be an irritant, so please use caution. There is some color transference with black mica, so be careful!
