Red and silver krausbouillion has been wrapped around a wire and then curled into a spiral. You can use just as it is, or bend and shape the wire any which way you choose. We love that if varies between silver and red tinsel!

Curled as it comes, it measures about 7-1/2 inches long by about 1 inch in diameter. There is a bead at each end to keep the krausbouillion (crinkle wire) on the wire so that it doesn't slip off. These are produced by Midwest of Cannon Falls and arrive in a nice storage tube if you choose to use this as an ornament. We think there are so many other uses!

Similar to our real German krausbouillion, this less expensive alternative is great for recreating vintage holiday ornaments and other crafts. It is also great to use as tinsel on a holiday tree.

This brand new silvery crinkle wire is made in a similar manner to the German variety, but is less expensive as it is silver-plated copper. There is a slight spiral look to this wonderful stuff - and it is still stretchable - just like the vintage type and the German-produced gold wire.

We love the zig-zag look to this thicker bullion. Each strand is about 13 inches long. The diameter of our stunning wide golden krausbouillion is around 2.5 mm (not quite 1/8 inch wide).  Each strand is individually packaged.

Old-Fashioned Natural Mica Glitter - in Black

Close-Up

 

Black Mica Glitter Flakes

More Mica and other Pigments & Paints

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!

We've packaged the mica in reusable plastic jars that measure about 2 inches in diameter and 2 inches high. The mica is quite lightweight, so a little goes a long way!

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!

More Krausbouillion, Crinkle Wire & Other Tinsel

If you love krausbouillion, you'll adore this much finer version. It arrives in one very smooth silvery 36-inch strand - less that 1mm in diameter! Don't let the bright silver fool you, this is true silver and will tarnish nicely over time so that it will resemble the ornaments of old.

You can pull it just like our other crinkle wires, but this one is ever so smooth and slippery. Once it is pulled and lengthened, the crinkly wire is so very fine and delicate that it just must be angel hair.

Please be careful when removing the bullion from the package as it stretches easily to many times its original length.

The illustration shows about 4 strands - both original and stretched into crinkly wire.

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. You might also recognize it as the snow used in the cinema.

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!

This wonderful mica comes packaged in a convenient wide-mouth clear plastic jar. There's a LOT of mica in there!

Mica is not toxic in its natural state, but it can be an irritant, so please use caution.

Our rare tinsel stars are from Germany and were made around Nuremburg before World War II. Each star is made of tinsel that is just a bit crinkled for fullness. This crinkle also creates the most beautiful shimmer when holiday lights reflect. These are old store stock and are in superb condition.

Each 6 cm ornament is packaged in a protective plastic box and may need a little fluffing for fullness. Or, you might want to flatten one and add a vintage die cut scrap for a special ornament. There is a self hanger for your convenience.

We packed a plastic medicine bottle with black glass glitter from Germany for you to try. We hate having to buy giant sized things and then finding out that they don't work out. Our glass glitter is the true German kind and is very highly reflective. We fill the bottle to the top, but it does settle a bit in transit.

Warning: This product is sharp slivers of glass - not polyester glitter sold for children. Use extreme caution when handling this material and when cleaning up after your project.

Vintage Golden Metallic Spiral Wire by the Inch

More Krausbouillion, Crinkle Wire & Other Tinsel

More Vintage

Treasured family Christmas ornaments have become sought after heirlooms - even for those who might not have had any as children. They are quite rare because of their fragility and ephemeral quality. Many were made for the fashion of the time, never expected to last over 100 years.

Even more treasured are the vintage and antique components from which the ornaments were made. We are so fortunate to have found this wonderful example of such a component - and such a unique one at that.

Our golden spiral wire is created from a tough tread that has been covered with woven metallic fibers and then formed into a spiral. The metallic fibre creates a wire-like structure that allows for some give in the spiral. This truly special piece might also be used for passementerie and other projects requiring metal fibers.

It offers a nice patina, showing its age. We gauge this spiral to hail from the 1920s or 1930s. Indeed, it just might be older than that.

The base thread allows you to manipulate this into circles around ornaments, boxes, appliqués and more. It is quite a treasure.

The woven metallic is about 1mm in diameter. The spiraled piece is 9mm or just under 3/8 inch wide.

The spiral is sold by the inch. Your selection will arrive all in one piece, which can be cut with scissors. However, it cannot be re-pieced easily without gluing or sewing, so please measure carefully for your project.

The wire is tightly coiled, so you get a lot in 1 inch!

Spun Glass Angel Hair (Fairy Hair)

Spun Glass Angel Hair

More Tinsel and the Like

More Christmas

Trimming a holiday tree became prominent during the Victorian times, and spun glass angel's hair or fairy's hair like this was on of the favorites then as it is now! It adds a touch of elegant whimsy to any display - especially when there are electric lights. The soft glow of the cloud-like hair enhances any lights - either white or color.

Still handmade in the traditional manner by a family company, each bag contains 15 grams of non-inflammable super-fine spun glass fibers. Although such spun glass hair is available from other sources, the German spun glass angel hair is truly curly hair. It does not compress easily and will stay curly. Use it as you would tinsel for special effects.

*****Please be careful when decorating or crafting with Spun Glass products. Remember, they are made of glass and might cause some irritation. Please cover your work surface with paper or plastic to catch any stray fibers and consider wearing gloves rather than your bare hands when using the Angel's Hair.

We are providing a pair of hypo-allergenic puncture-resistant, unpowdered Nitrile gloves, size Medium, to help protect your hands with each bag of Angel Hair.
