Now available directly from The Vintage Workshop comes Mica Snow. This wonderful embellishing product is a wonderful vintage inspired flaky “snow” that looks like a cross between artificial snow and glitter. It is a white shimmery flake that can be glued to almost any surface including paper for cards, candles, pine cones or you can just sprinkle it on a tray to give a little sparkle.

A little history from the makers of Mica Snow. Mica is a mineral that comes in a variety of colors and can be easily separated into thin transparent sheets. We’ve processed our high quality white mica into small flakes much like the ‘Vintage Mica Snow’ of the early 1900s. In addition to being beautiful, it’s non-toxic, tough, chemically inert, transparent and waterproof. It can also withstand temperatures of over 1100 degrees!
