Colorant Options - Mica Powders, Dyes, Pigments

 

Whether you are looking for transparent or opaque colorant casting options, we can provide you with the right combination to achieve your goals.  Most of the Alumilite Dyes are considered transparent, but when mixed with mica powders, can create an opaque blank. Mica powders alone are transparent (unless you use a large amount and/or darker color), but when mixed with dyes or pigments can be opaque. Pigments are naturally opaque, but can be given depth and dimension by adding mica powders. Mica is colorless sparkle on its own but the powder substrate it is mixed into is created from the minerals or other materials added to the mica.
