Pearl Pigments are safe mineral pigments also called mica powders with high pearl and metallic sheen. Mica powders are very versatile as you can add them to any paint, ink, media and even clay to add shimmer and luster to your project. Daily ART offers 20 bright colors of Mica Powder.
Mix Pearl Pigment into acrylics, oils, alcohol or water-based inks, epoxy resin, glues, medias, casting resing, clay, varnishes and many more.
Mix with Gumi Arabic to create ink.
Try mixing with Daily ART Gum Arabic and make your pearlescent calligraphy ink or watercolor. Use on porous surfaces such as paper and chipboard. Gum Arabic is not water resistant! That means you can use it only on decorative objects that you never plan to wash, like pictures or decorative plaques. At the same time, this will let you do quick clean up and not worry about your clothes.
Mix with varnish or medium
Mix Pearl Pigment with Daily Art acrylic varnishes and Medium to create water-resistant gel or paint. Mix with Gel Medium Gloss or Gel Medium Matt to create thick metallic gel for relief decorations. Use mixture with a stencil or for impasto technique.
Mix with Daily ART Triple Thick Gloss Varnish or Liquid Glass and make thick metallic paint or a stain. This paint will give you a longer drying time and allow you to add dimensional metallic decoration to your mixed media projects as the mixture will not crack in a thick layer.
Mix with Gloss Varnish Spray Transparent to get water-resistant acrylic ink.
