How to apply Mica flakes?
 
I'm fairly new to stamping and may have gotten far ahead of myself with this idea. Just did a forum and You Tube search and couldn't find what I am looking for..............I want to apply Mica on my Christmas cards to give an image of snowflakes falling in a random pattern. Do I spray an adhesive and then sprinkle the flakes? Will the adhesive dry and show in areas that do not receive any Mica. I guess the operative word here is random. Is Mica the product I should use or is there another product that would look like snow and be easier to work with. The Mica has been purchased. Just today I bought some glitter and have been watching tutorials on how to apply that, so now you know how new I am.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

For 'bumpy' or other materials other than paper, I love the liquid glass stuff. You can get it from a Close To My Heart lady, or Stampin' Up!. I'm not sure about other brands as I haven't used them, but I'm sure there are similar products at your local craft store.

i'd say a dry adhesive such as double sided tape or sheets but depends if you want a random look or not.

So you have fine mica flakes like glitter? They also come in huge flakes like glass pieces. When I clicked thru from the newsletter, that's what I was thinking of. How big/small are they?

The Crafty Avenue and Craft Fave links were extremely helpful (I'm already familiar with USArtQuest). The Craft Fave projects were lovely.
