Starbond How to mix CA Glues with Mica Powders?

When using CA glue to fill voids or as a finish, many makers want to either match colors with the substrate material or have a different shade to bring out some contrast. Well, you’ll be pleased to know that our CA glues can be mixed with a mica powder of your choice to suit any color you want!

Common Concerns

You may have second thoughts on this process for problems like the mica powder clumping, inconsistent color dispersion, or premature setting of the CA glue, but we’ve got you covered!

Achieving the Perfect Mix

  1. Prepare a separate container (a bowl or a cup) to mix clear CA glue and mica powder. This is to avoid curing the entire glue inside the bottle.
  2. Ensure your work surface is ready before mixing, as the glue-powder mixture quickly becomes unworkable within 2-3 minutes due to fast curing.
  3. Once everything is set up, start with a small amount of glue, then gradually add pinches of mica powder, mixing thoroughly with a silicone spatula until the desired color and shimmer are achieved.

It's as easy as 1-2-3, so leverage the expansive palette of Starbond's Mica Powder collections, encompassing three unique sets with over 70 unique color shades. Each palette—be it the vivid RGB, the radiant POPY, or the classic BWB–promises to infuse your clear glues with a new flare.
