Distress Stain Mica Sprays contain mica particles, providing a shimmery and metallic appearance to your projects. They add an element of sparkle and iridescence. They provide a unique shimmering and metallic finish that can change with the angle of light. Ideal for projects where you want a touch of elegance, sparkle, or a magical quality, such as art pieces, cards, and mixed media.

Distress Stain Mica Sprays vs Distress Stain Sprays

Distress Stain Mica Sprays bring shimmer and a touch of magic, while Distress Stain Sprays offer solid, matte colors. Your choice depends on the effect and style you desire for your creative projects.

Creative Applications for Distress Stain Mica Sprays

Shimmery Backgrounds: Create stunning shimmery backgrounds for cards, scrapbook pages, or art projects. Simply spray the Mica Sprays on paper, cardstock, or canvas for a sparkling base.

Feel free to blend different colors of Mica Sprays directly on your paper! You can stamp over the shimmery background or attach some die cuts.

Use Mica Sprays with stencils.

  • Position the stencil on your paper and apply Mica spray across it.
  • Gently lift the stencil to reveal the shimmering pattern.
  • Take another sheet of white paper and press it onto the stencil where the spray droplets remain. This creates a beautiful transfer of the leftover spray drops.

Use Mica Sprays with texture paste like Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste

You have the flexibility to use Mica Sprays either before or after applying white texture paste. In the first example on the left, I began by creating a shimmery background with Mica Sprays and then added white texture paste through a stencil.

In the second sample on the right, I started with a white texture paste and later sprayed Mica Sprays over the textured background. This approach allows you to add a touch of color to the texture, offering various creative possibilities.

Use Mica Sprays with 3D Embossing folders

After embossing your paper with your trusty embossing folder, it’s time to bring in the sparkle. Mica Sprays add that extra touch of shimmer and depth to those raised patterns, turning your paper into something truly special.

Use Mica Sprays with dies

Create a shimmering die cut or add a touch of sparkle to the layered die cuts.

Another fantastic option is to add color to white die cuts with Mica Sprays, just as I did in my card project below. For a shiny card background, I stamped several flowers using Wonderland Distress Mica Spray. To enhance the card’s charm, I embellish it with a white pearlescent wax seal and Vivant Double Face Satin Turquoise Ribbon.
