Splitting Mica:


STEP 1:

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.


STEP 2:

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


STEP 3:

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


STEP 4:

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


STEP 5:

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


RESULTS!

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