This month features mica and how to use it. Mica is smooth, flat pieces of transparent organic rock formed in many layers. Mica tiles easily delaminates and can be re-adhered with adhesives or various hardware components. Every mica tile is distinctly different from one another and packages contain several different sizes and colorations. Tear, die-cut, or trim with scissors, heat resistant Mica tiles can be embossed, stamped, painted, collaged, used as photo transfer canvas, and adhered to virtually any surface. We will be making several cards showing different ways to use mica.
