It does take quite a bit of Pearl Ex to color the Gesso.

And yes, I made up three separate colors using a piece of wax lined butcher paper for my mixing palette. Next time I will try a foam egg carton as it does take some effort to mix the Pearl Ex into the Gesso.

I didn't have any paint brushes on hand, so I used the back of three different baby spoons to dole out the Pearl Ex and mix it into the Gesso and then used those same baby spoons to apply the mixture to the metal tape.

The applications went on rather thickly, but the embossing folder took care of that rather nicely.
