Trial Mini Pour with My Mica Paints

Did you see my earlier article and video where I made my own paints? Check it our here if you missed it.
It certainly made some fabulous looking paints, especially the sparkle mica colors – but how would they actually perform in a poured painting? There was only one way to find out!

I’m testing them out on a mini canvas and figure I don’t have much to loose. The micas didn’t cost anything, so it’s just a bit of Floetrol wasted if this doesn’t work out. I can always reuse the mini canvas.

But it’s not wasted – it’s amazing! Wow, the metallics, the sparkle, fabulous. I’m so excited by the trial I wish I had jumped in and tried something on a larger scale. Check out the slideshow below for some more wet and dry photos as well as some close-up details. I recommend giving it a try if you have access to any micas. Just check they are water soluble (see the previous video) and go to town!

Please PIN and share this article and video. Save it for later and share it with your painting friends 🙂 Thank you.

    I just discovered mica and I love it. I first experimented with some of the old eye shadow I had on hand. Then I graduated to Dollar Store eye shadow. They were beautiful colors when mixed with resin. I also used a small canvas. Was quite impressed with how they interact with the resin. Well today I ordered some artists mica from Michaels. Can’t wait to try that out on a bigger canvas. Your paintings are great.
