Pearl Ex Powder Pigments are our most versatile product! Jacquard Pearl Ex is a safe, non-toxic, inert powdered pigment that exhibits extreme colorfastness and stability, ideal for scale tipping and highlighting applications. It has a use for every artist and taxidermist. Try it mixed with Pearl Ex Varnish for applying to most surfaces. It can dry on porous surfaces. Pearl Ex creates a metallic look without being a metal – it will not tarnish or fade. The different particle sizes produce different looks from a fine, smooth pearly luster to a highly metallic sheen.
