Decorative Mica Sample Kits
Asheville-Schoonmaker’s lampshade mica is manufactured by combining mica flakes with organic shellac binder. The combination is then put under pressure for an extended time, then sanded to ensure even thickness. This process creates sheets with unique, striking colors that are a result of mineral deposit variations. They are perfect for the following applications:
- Custom lighting solutions
- Privacy barriers
- Furniture accents
Our Sample Kit is designed to provide an introduction to our custom built-up mica plate as designed for decorative purposes. We have assembled this package of fourteen 6” x 6” samples to illustrate the texture, colors and effects of different micas and resin combinations in thicknesses of .015" and .030". This allows you to fully test the product and determine which of the options is perfect for your project.
While we can supply lampshade mica in just about any color, here are common selections:
- Stained silver
- Stained amber
- Dark amber
- Copper-stained silver
Lampshade mica from Asheville-Schoonmaker Mica is easily shaped by evenly heating for a couple of minutes. Then gently mold the mica over a cast or form. Once cooled, the mica sheet recovers its firmness while maintaining the desired shape. The material is also easily cut with heavy sheers, a band saw, or scroll saw.
