Pearl Ex Powdered Pigments
Jacquard 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 watercolor, in the Pearl Ex Varnish for working on non-porous surfaces, or mixed into one of Jacquard’s colorless extenders for use on fabric.

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.

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

Read through all instructions before beginning your project.
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
• Interference colors work best over dark surfaces.
• Mix 4 parts Pearl Ex to 1 part Gum Arabic and add water to desired consistency for a watercolor 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 mold with Pearl Ex before pressing in the clay. This is a great way to color the clay.
It also makes the clay easier to release from the mold.
• 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 color 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.
