I do gourd artwork and use Lumeier and Neopaque as well as other inks and dyes. I just got an assortment of PearlX powders and wonder if anyone has mixed the directly in to a paint and what the quantities were. How did it come out?

Hi there,

Mixing [url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/pearlex.php"]PearlEx[/url] with a clear medium works very well. You'll not want to add it to pigmented paints as the pigment drowns the mica in the [url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/pearlex.php"]PearlEx[/url]. It will tint the paint but you would lose all the shimmer.
As for how much - that is very much determined by just what effect you want to achieve. As a starting point adding 12-15% (by weight) [url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/pearlex.php"]PearlEx[/url] to clear medium will get you close to full coverage. Coverage will be affected by particle size and pigment weight of the different [url="http://www.jacquardproducts.com/pearlex.php"]PearlEx [/url]colors.

Have fun!
