Mica is a thin silicate mineral made up of many thin layers, a thick stack of these layers is called a book. Mica is sometimes referred to as bibliolite or bookstone. This workshop will explore a mica product intended for lampshades. Composite mica is made with finely flaked mica sprayed with shellac to form large sheets of various colors and thicknesses. The strong translucent material is an ideal collage material and is a wonderful book cover alternative. Create two different book structures, each taking advantage of the unique quality of this form of mica. Your journals will have mica covers and paper pages.
