From the Jacquard website:
Here are some ideas to get you started:
• Mix Pearl Ex with a clear embossing powder for rubber stamp embossing. Pearl Ex in itself is not an embossing powder.
• Interference colors work best over dark surfaces.
• Mix 4 parts Pearl Ex to 1 part Gum Arabic and add water to desired consistency for a watercolor paint. If mixing in a plastic well palette, this mixture can dry out and become reconstituted with water.
• Mix with Gum Arabic and water to create a calligraphy ink for use with any dip pen or pointed nib.
• Dust Pearl Ex Powders onto shrink plastic before shrinking. The powder will become embedded in the surface
when the plastic shrinks.
• Dust a polymer clay rubber mold with Pearl Ex before pressing in the clay. This is a great way to color the clay. It also makes the clay easier to release from the mold.
• Mix Pearl Ex with the Jacquard Textile Colors Colorless Extender (JAC100) for use on fabrics. Heat set as directed on bottle.
• Mix Pearl Ex with any clear medium to use over any surface. For example, you can mix Pearl Ex with a varnish, acrylic or solvent-based, as a coating over clay, wood, or paper.
• Dust Pearl Ex onto any surface and then seal with a spray lacquer. Spray the lacquer out over the surface and let the mist fall onto the surface rather than spraying the lacquer at the surface. This will give you a more even coat of lacquer without spray marks as well as preventing the spray from blowing off the Pearl Ex.
• Knead dry Pearl Ex powder into polymer clay to color it.
• Pearl Ex can be mixed into wax for candlemaking.
• Pearl Ex can be mixed into a medium and airbrushed. Some testing will be necessary to ensure that the particle size will fit through the airbrush opening.
