There is an almost endless variety of finishes from metallic sheens to pearlescent shimmers and everything in between.
Ways You Can UsePearl Ex Pigments On Polymer Clay
- With a small amount of powder on your finger, rub on the Pearl Ex powder to the clay before it is baked. A little bit goes a long way.
- To apply with a brush, dip the tip of the brush into the powdered pigment and tap the excess off on the side of the container.
- If using either a brush or fingertip, tap off the excess powder before applying so that it does not fall into the crevices.
- Dust a polymer clay rubber mould with Pearl Ex before pressing in the clay. This is a great way to colour the clay. It also makes the clay easier to release from the mould.
- Knead dry Pearl Ex powder into polymer clay to colour it.
Try applying the pigment on the raised areas only, it will make the textures pop!
