Pearl Ex Pigments
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 to create your own metallic watercolour paints or calligraphy in. Or try mixing Pearl Ex into a varnish for working on non-porous surfaces, or mixed into a fabric medium or extender for use on textiles
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!
Note: Pearl Ex Powdered Pigments were specifically developed as an art material. They are NOT for cosmetic use.
Try these pigments on textiles, polymer clay, encaustics, paper, shrink plastic, leather, glass, canvas, wood, and more! Mix with a binder to use on natural and synthetic fibers.
