For the love of mica...


For-the-love-of-mica

Now it's no secret that I love mica....I love them in my Silks Acrylic Glazes, I love them in my Golden Gold Mica Flakes and I love my bottle of clear mica powder. So I had to incorporate all of them on a mixed media canvas. Yeah...I just had to...*LOL*


The base is 6x6 piece of Basic Grey patterned paper. I did some machine-stitching along the border and distressed the edges for some texture before adhering the sheet to a 6x6 canvas panel. Then I applied Golden fiber paste and glass bead gel with The Crafter's Workshop stencils. I like to layer my stencils to create unique designs.


Next, I coloured the whole surface with gesso and Faber Castell gelatos. Once that was dry, I applied Silks Acrylic Glazes in coordinating colours on the raised surfaces for subtle shimmer and depth of colour. Then I finished with some clear mica flakes, Golden Gold Mica Flakes and some pretty embellishments.



I love that the piece shimmers in the light without being overly glittery. What do you think?

P/s: Happy weekend friends!
