Pearl Ex is Jacquards most versatile product. It’s a safe, non-toxic, powdered pigment that exhibits extreme colorfastness and stability and is ideal for interior and archival applications. It has a use for every artist from water colorist to auto painter. 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 and can create a metallic look without it being a metal. It will not tarnish or fade and it’s a lightfast, inert with a neutral pH. The Pearl Ex particle is a flat platelet with two surfaces, therefore it lays down beautifully like a thin coating of metal. The different particle sizes produce different looks from a fine, smooth, pearly luster to a highly metallic sheen.
