Pearl Ex Powdered Pigments

Pearl Ex Powdered Pigments are our most versatile product yet! Mix Pearl Ex into any viscous medium for a metallic/pearlescent effect. Pearl Ex is a safe, inert pigment that exhibits extreme colorfastness and stability, ideal for interior, fashion, fine arts and other archival applications. It has a use for every artist, from watercolorist to auto painter, faux finisher to rubber stamper. Try it mixed with Jacquard Gum Arabic or Pearl Ex Varnish for applying to most surfaces, or mixed into one of Jacquard’s colorless extenders for use on fabric. It can also be mixed with other artist mediums, oils, acrylics, encaustic, Dorland’s Wax, polymer clays, or spread dry on porous surfaces.

Pearl Ex creates a metallic effect without being a real metal—it will never tarnish or fade.The different particle sizes produce different effects, from a smooth pearly luster, to a highly metallic sheen.

Note: Pearl Ex Powdered Pigments were specifically developed as a art material.
         They are NOT for cosmetic use.

Clay, polymer clay, encaustics, paper, shrink plastic, leather, glass, canvas,
wood, and more! Mix with a binder to use on natural and synthetic fibers.
