Recycled Glass With Mica

Share on FacebookShare on Twitter

Recently I discovered the wonders of mica.  I had no idea what a versatile and amazing tool 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 a slump firing.

All of the pieces here are for holiday shows in my area.  If you are interested in a particular piece, please check the Events tab for a list of shows.

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

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.
