Our high-quality Mica Pigment Powder is a versatile product that is perfect for a variety of applications. Ranging from 10-60 microns in size, these pigments are ideal for working with resins, lacquer, epoxy, cosmetics, automotive paint, nail polish, latex, and many other mediums.

KEY APPLICATIONS:

  1. Epoxy Resin Projects: Mica powder in epoxy resin creates a pearlescent, metallic shimmer effect that can be used in a variety of projects, such as resin turning projects, river tables, charcuterie boards, epoxy lamps, geode art, resin jewelry, 3D photos, pressed flower art, acrylic trays, resin keychains, epoxy art pour paintings, epoxy coasters, and custom countertops. The mica pigments can add a unique shimmer and sparkle to these projects​.

  2. Cosmetics: Mica powder is a crucial ingredient in shimmery cosmetic products like eyeshadow, highlight, blush, lip gloss, and nail polish. When mixed with other minerals, it creates products that look great and adhere well to the skin​.

  3. Soap Making: Mica works best in transparent soaps like melt and pour. It gives the soap a nice pearlescent effect. However, in cold process soap making, some micas might not work as their colors are sometimes unstable in the high pH of raw cold processed soap. Testing in a small batch first or testing a bit of mica in lye water to see if the color shifts is recommended​.

  4. Woodworking, Plastics, Slime, Fishing Lures, Jewelry, Lip Balm, Acrylic, Candle Making: Mica pigment powder adds color and shimmer to these projects, making them more appealing and personalized.

PIGMENT SIZE:

Our Mica Pigments are 10-60 microns in size which is perfect for providing a delicate shimmer without creating a rough texture. The pigments are easily mixable with your chosen medium, providing a smooth, seamless finish.

SIZES AVAILABLE:

We offer our Mica Pigment Powder in two convenient sizes - 45 Gram and 80 Gram. These sizes allow for both small, personal projects and larger, professional uses.

SUGGESTED DOSE:

We suggest a dose of 1/8 teaspoon per 1 litre to achieve medium transparency. This is a starting point and can be adjusted to meet your specific color intensity and transparency requirements.

Awesome Pigment

I've tried other reds and found them to be dull or washed out unless I use a ton of the pigment but not with the Beaver Dust Ruby Red. In fact I found I could use about half of what I normally use and get the same, or better, results. I will definitely be buying this pigment again.
