Mixing Pearl Ex with Watercolor paint
  • I paint with watercolors and am new to Pearl Ex pigments. I need some advise about how to mix my Holbein paints with Pearl Ex.

    Thanks
  • I mix up a pot (or small jar) of watercolor paint and water, then add PE and stir or shake. Paint! Stir or shake the mixture frequently.

    You can do the same thing with acrylic paints from the tube or the kind in a jar. If I feel I have to add water, I use a couple drops of distilled water at a time, until I get the consistency I want.

    You can also add itto ink.

    I LOVE Pear-Ex because I can add it tosomany things.
