You can make your own sprays several ways. If you use Perfect Pearls (by Ranger) you can add water (and dye ink if you want to) to make your own sprays (there is already a binder in the powder). If you use other mica powders you'll need to add a binder (usually gum arabic) - or spritz with hairspray (I think) to set the powder so it doesn't brush off when dry. I know there are liquid pearlescent mediums (in the fine arts supply areas) but I don't know how much you'd need to water it down in order to spray it instead of paint it.
