We are proud to support UK lampwork companies and are delighted to supply Mica powders from Dragonfire Glass.
How do I use it?
Put some on a heat-resistant surface.Make your bead and roll the glass on the mica.
Put back in the flame to fuse the mica to the glass.
The larger the flake (gold and silver large) are less resistant to the flame than the smaller ones, due to the larger area of coating being exposed; the powder and shimmer colours love it!
Keep a dampened paper towel or newspaper handy to wipe any excess off the fused bead. Excess can even be scraped if needed but this runs the risk of scraping it off altogether so be gentle.
Mica does not stick to other mica.
Black glass is the best to bring out the most colour in the shimmer and multi-toned mica.
Gold and silver in large, medium and small are flakes of mica. They aren’t particularly flyaway.
All the fine mica, including the multi-toned, is very flyaway.
Blue, green, gold and purple shimmer powders, and the bronze and wine red powders have the consistency of flour.
