HILITE/ INTERFERENCE MICA PACK
15gms each of Hilite Gold, Copper, Blue & Violet
Hilite Mica or Interference Mica or Duochrome Mica are translucent powder made of mica coated with titanium dioxide. The most interesting nature of this powder is that they are angle dependent; when you look at them they appear more white, but if look at them at different angles or rub them onto your skin or applied wet, you will see glorious iridescent hues within them. The presence of the different colours is due to the thickness or layers of the titanium dioxide or iron oxide deposited onto mica particles, and therefore, when ligt strikes the surface of these particles, the result is the reflection of various wonderful colours. When working with these Interference Micas, it is important to know that they can be mixed with other colours, but if blended with a white based colours, the interference effect will be diluted, and therefore will disappear. On the other hand, if mixed with darker colours that are normally absorb light rather than reflect, they will make a wonderful variety of iridescent colours. These duochrome pigments can be used to make hilighters, eyeshadow, lip products & nailpolish .
