Mica Metallic Powder Pigment - Orange Red
This powder is for Artists and Surfboard makers who want a bit of sparkle!
Our mica powder is an organic and finely grinded stone from the mineral mica. Mica's are non-toxic and naturally occur from the minerals muscovite and silicate. Mica is crushed into smaller than 20 microns, gives a satiny appearance while providing a sparkly effect. This powder is then coated with various Oxides, carmine and titanium dioxide to give a full range of colours. Making the particles safe. This process is not merely mixing the two together, but instead is a fusing through heat and pressure. This permanently bonds the pigments onto the surface of each mica particle.
We carry over 50 colours!
