Jacquard Pearl-Ex Powdered Pigments are extremely versatile. They can be mixed into any media and applied to any surface. And the variety of finishes Pearl-Ex can produce is nearly endless-- from metallic sheens to pearlescent shimmers to all manner of faux finishes.
To achieve interesting effects, Pearl-Ex can be mixed into varnish, oil, acrylic, gouache, clay, melted wax-- Almost any medium. And they can be applied to clay, glass, metal, wood, paper, fabric-- Almost anything.
Pearl Ex creates a metallic look without being a metal. The particles are flat platelets with two surfaces, therefore it lays down beautifully like a thin coating of metal. The different particle sizes produce different looks-- from a fine, smooth, pearly luster to a highly metallic sheen.
It is a safe, non-toxic, inert powdered pigment with a neutral pH. It is extremely color fast and stable-- it will not tarnish or fade and is therefore ideal for archival applications.
