Gaga is a brilliant natural mica-type additive which can be added to various indoor Italian decorative products to create a glittery coating. This glitter can be mixed with paints, glazes, enamels and varnishes beside Italian decorative plasters like Stucco (Venetian polished plaster), up to the grain size of Marmorino to produce an outstanding paint or plaster effect.
Impera Italia’s Advice™
Add 1 package per Litre of paint for a strong or 1 package per 2.5-4 litres for a light effect. For plasters it should only be added to the last (or visible) coats and the application should be controlled so not to suppress the glitter.
Mica is a type of sheet silicate that has been used for decor (cave paintings) since at least 10.000 BC.
