What is Pearl Ex Powder?
Pearl Ex Powder is a high quality mica powder, made specifically for the arts and craft industry. They come in many vibrant colours, to add that something special to your resin project.
“Mica is a natural stone mineral with shiny flakes. When mica is ground into a powder, you get mica powder. Mica powders are therefore sparkly, sort of like very fine glitter. They’re used to give a metallic or shimmery pearl-like effect.”
How do I use Pearl Ex Powder with Resin?
We will only be focusing on how you can use them in your resin projects.
You can use your Pearl Ex powder to colour your resin by mixing it into your resin before pouring. You can see by the above photos that it does give you a amazing shimmer finish.
You can also paint the Pearl Ex powder into your silicone mould before you add the resin. Make sure to remove the access powder before you pour your resin into the moulds. This will give you a matt but sparkle finish on your resin.
