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 watercolour, in the Pearl Ex and apply on Fabric/Fiber/Surfaces. Varnish for working on non-porous surfaces, or mixed into one of Jacquard’s colourless extenders for use on fabric.
Pearl Ex is a safe, inert pigment that exhibits extreme colourfastness 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!
