Add Sparkle with Mica-Coated Paper

The term "metallic paper" refers to paper that has been coated with very finely ground mica crystal particles. The particles cannot be felt and the paper is very smooth.

Mica-coated papers reflect light and have a beautiful unique shimmer or pearlescence. The look is almost metallic - the reason that these papers are referred to as "metallic papers". However, no metallic substances are used.

If you want to add some Wow! to your next project consider these eye-catching papers!
