We love these pigments. Pressed into oven bake or air dry clay adds a layer of shimmer. Mixed with Gum Arabic it becomes a watercolor or ink. We have mixed it into any number of acrylic mediums for everything from paint pouring to fabric paint. Mix it into resin or add a dash to slime. However you art, this is a great way to add color and shimmer.
From the manufacturer:
Our most versatile product yet, Pearl Ex Powdered Pigments may be used any time a metallic or pearlescent effect is desired: mix them into acrylics, oils, printing inks, encaustics, alcohol inks, epoxy, glues, casting resins, clay, varnishes, the list goes on! Try it mixed with Gum Arabic for a DIY metallic calligraphy ink or watercolor, in the Pearl Ex Varnish for working on non-porous surfaces, or mixed into one of Jacquard's colorless extenders for use on fabric.
Pearl Ex is a safe, inert pigment that exhibits extreme colorfastness and stability. The different particle sizes produce different effects, from a smooth pearly luster, to a highly metallic sheen. Pearl Ex creates a metallic effect without being a real metal-it will never tarnish or fade!
