Splitting Mica:


Brick/Chunk refers to this kind of mica. This type of mica has the ability to cover more, but to do that you must break them down.


On the edges of each chunk, you can see where the pieces seperate.


With your fingers or a tool (ex: razor), begin to split apart the mica.


Continue splitting, eventually the brick/chunk will break into about 7-9 single mica sheets.


Now you can start to tear, cut, score the mica sheets as you please!


From my calculations, about 5 lbs of brick/chunk mica split into single square layers will cover an 8' x 10' wall.

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask!
