Add Sparkle to Painted Furniture using American Paint Company’s Metallic Mica Powders VIDEO

I’ve been having a lot of fun playing around with American Paint Company’s Mica Powders the past couple of weeks as we prepare for West Michigan’s Michigan’s Women’s Expo on March 14-16 at DeVos Place in downtown Grand Rapids.   I’ll share more on that tomorrow.

In preparation for this event, we needed a sign for Shizzle Design

I grabbed an old ornate frame and slapped on various colors using American Paint Company’s chalk & clay based mineral paints.

I know, looks pretty weird right?  No worries, I have plans for this puppy.  Just look what happens when you add a little Dark Wax and Copper Mica Powder.

  1. That looks amazing!! I love those colors! Now I wish I would have gotten the copper instead of the silver. lol I haven’t tried my dust yet. I will now! Thanks for the tips.

    1. I like the silver too over other colors but the copper and pewter are my favorite. You’ll have fun with the grit too! That’s awesome in pieces that have a lot of texture.

  2. So gorgeous! And thanks for the tutorial! I just got some of the mica in pewter and I’m gathering the courage to use it ;-). I think copper will be my next purchase.

  3. Love that frame with the BLING!! It looks fantabulous!! If winter ever goes away, I have some projects to do and will have to get some of that mica 🙂
