Default Pigment Pearls Tutorial

Pearl Ex powders look amazing on black cardstock! So for this technique, all you need is your favorite stamp, black cardstock and pigment ink, and of course, your pigment pearls (Pearl Ex).

- Ink your stamp with pigment ink (white, black, gold, color -- try it each way... and show us your results!)
- Stamp on regular black cardstock
- Brush your first Pearl Ex color in various places (it will stick to the pigment ink); tap off and repeat with a different color of Pearl Ex in other places until the image is completely covered with Pearl Ex
- Use a soft brush, kleenex, swiffer cloth or soft cloth to carefully and selectively remove excess Pearl Ex (don't just wipe across your image!)
- Seal with Krylon Fixatif or hairspray

In the sample below I used white pigment ink and a combination of Pearl Ex powders (Super Bronze, Aztec Gold, Spring Green and Glitter Copper)

Please feel free to show us your Pigment Pearls Art!

Deb, the excess powder, can it be saved and reused such as is the case with excess embossing powder?

You sure can, AQ. If you have black cardstock, be sure to try the Spray Starch technique too. We'd love to see what you make.

For a last minute Christmas card, this is what I desiged (it's a bit difficult to notice the Pearl Ex as I used red on red):
