Mica powder can be used on glass but you’ll first have to mix it with a clean burning glass glue (or Bullseye Glastac) and rubbing alcohol. Use 2 parts mica, 1 part Glastac, and 1 part rubbing alcohol to paint directly onto your piece. Next you’ll want to put it in the kiln for about 1325° F.


We mentioned how mica can be used in soap earlier but we thought we’d add it into the list of art projects because it’s really cool what can be done with it.

We recommend using mica in the melt and pour method. All you have to do is add the powder to your melt. If you get any mica bubbles float up to the top, spray them with just a little bit of rubbing alcohol. Once everything is mixed, pour the soap into your mold.

For transparent melt: Use ½ teaspoon per pound of melt

Note: Mica powder works best with transparent melts. you can find the color you want through artrus.com.au/shop
