Recycled Glass With Mica

Recently I discovered the wonders of mica.  I had no idea what a versatile and amazing and useful tool mica is to have in my collection of fused recycled glass ideas.  Here are a few of the pieces that I’ve made recently using various types of textured glass and a mica solution.  The mica on all of these pieces is painted on the surface of the glass and fired, most are a slump firing.

Enjoy and do let me know what you think, and, as always, thank you for reading!

  1. Hi Jodi!! You are painting the mica directly onto the surface and then firing?? I had always been told that mica had to be capped — that it would not adhere. Clearly this is not the case (no pun intended). Which brings me to the question, what is the medium you are using — aloe? oils? klyr-fire?  hairspray? Yes, I am being nosy, but I use mica powders quite a lot and I would like to take advantage of some surface treatment, too.
