I think the bands are glare from the plastic!

Wow! Love the textured look and the colors. Again, I say, WOW.

Have you tried other than black acrylic paint as a base?

AQ, other dark colors would be great to try. I haven't yet. Dark colors really show off the Pearl Ex.

The red alnd black bands show in the picture you posted so go look at the post.

I think a deep red to burgandy background would make a very asian looking paper.

Deb, is there a reason that you used a paper towel/napkin and not cardstock?

A napkin or paper towel brings texture and wrinkles to the Black Pearls Technique.

You can certainly do these steps on cardstock. That would be a different technique would would have a different name. Creative thinking, AQ! Go for it and show us what you come up with!

My creative juices are flowing as I have two swaps that I am hosting and although one I have done before (Fat Card), my idea for that one is going to be a whopper (Japanese Doll Festival). The other one (altered slide mailer), I've never attempted before and that's what I plan on using this technique for. Stay tuned...

I started this technique tonight but didn't have any sponge brushes on hand so I used a cosmetic sponge instead. It seemed to do the trick. Now comes the waiting period in which to allow the paint to dry. And I didn't have any black acrylic so I applied blue, then a coat of red, and then another coat of blue. It will be interesting to see the outcome. Stay tuned...
