Jacquard’s most versatile product yet, Pearl Ex Powdered Pigments may be used any time a metallic or pearlescent effect is desired: mix them into Piñata Alcohol Inks, acrylics, oils, printing inks, encaustics, 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!
