As I’ve told those who come to my Fused Glass booth at my shows and those that follow my Fused Glass blogs know I love to learn. One of my mentors Tanya Viet did a free video using dichroic mica decals. Mica is a mineral, mined from the earth. But this mica isn’t a powder it is infused with dichroic coating and comes in the form of a decal that can be cut to different shapes. Mica does not fuse to itself, it only adheres to the glass surface it’s touching.
It is a very interesting product can be used in may ways but mainly for jewelry due to the cost. Tanya’s video showed several different techniques. One was just too difficult for me, I must not have a steady hand because I made a mess of it. But I liked three techniques using the mica decals. One has both mica and dichroic so it’s shiny and matt at the same time I made two pendants with it. The other two fused glass pendants have mica and powder and are very subtle but I like subtle. I’m curious what ya’ll think of these interesting fused glass techniques. These are so elegant in person.
