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!
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!


Surfaces: polymer clay, encaustics, paper, shrink plastic, leather, glass, canvas, wood. Mix with binder to use on natural and synthetic fibers.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

• Mix Pearl Ex with a clear embossing powder for rubber stamp embossing. Pearl Ex in itself is not an embossing powder.

• Interference colours work best over dark surfaces.

• Mix 4 parts Pearl Ex to 1 part Gum Arabic and add water to desired consistency for a watercolour paint. If mixing in a plastic well palette, this mixture can dry out and become reconstituted with water.

• Mix with Gum Arabic and water to create a calligraphy ink for use with any dip pen or pointed nib.

• Dust Pearl Ex Powders onto shrink plastic before shrinking. The powder will become embedded in the surface when the plastic shrinks.

• Dust a polymer clay rubber mould with Pearl Ex before pressing in the clay. This is a great way to colour the clay. It also makes the clay easier to release from the mould. • Mix Pearl Ex with the Jacquard Textile Colors Colorless Extender (JAC100) for use on fabrics. Heat set as directed on bottle.

• Mix Pearl Ex with any clear medium to use over any surface. For example, you can mix Pearl Ex with a varnish, acrylic or solvent-based, as a coating over clay, wood, or paper. • Dust Pearl Ex onto any surface and then seal with a spray lacquer. Spray the lacquer out over the surface and let the mist fall onto the surface rather than spraying the lacquer at the surface. This will give you a more even coat of lacquer without spray marks as well as preventing the spray from blowing off the Pearl Ex.

• Knead dry Pearl Ex powder into polymer clay to colour it. • Pearl Ex can be mixed into wax for candle making.

• Pearl Ex can be mixed into a medium and airbrushed. Some testing will be necessary to ensure that the particle size will fit through the airbrush opening.

    • Order processing time is 1-3 working days.
