They're made from mica pigment thin transparent particles coated with highly reflective metal oxides. Iridescent colors reflect light and their semi-transparent quality adds a fascinating sense of depth to your work. Iridescent Scarab Red is a complex burgundy with a delicate surface sparkle of blue-green pigment.
