Pearl Ex has a use for every artist. Pearl Ex can be incorporated into any media for application to any surface. Traditional artist colors can be mixed with Pearl Ex Pigments for special effects. Pearl Ex creates a metallic look without being a metal. It will not tarnish or fade. It is lightfast, inert with a neutral pH. The Pearl Ex particle is a flat platelet with two surfaces, therefore it lays down beautifully like a think coating of metal. The different particle sizes produce different looks from a fine, smooth, pearly luster to a highly metallic sheen.
Jacquard Pearl Ex is a safe, nontoxic, inert, powdered pigment that exhibits extreme colorfastness and stability. Ideal for interiour and archival applications, they can be incorporated into any viscous medium, i.e.: oil, acrylic, gouache, varnish and clay or they may be spread dry on porous surfaces. Their temperature resistance allows them to be fired in a kiln up to 600 degrees.
