Default Perfect Pearls?

I just got some Perfect Pearls, and am really loving them so far. I just love the shimmer. I haven't tried anything other than just brushing it over the perfect medium, but it looks awesome - can someone tell me- how is Perfect Medium different from Versamark? The set came with a Perfect Medium spot, but I think a full size ink pad would be easier (i'm not really the spot type)- and am wondering if it makes a difference.

Also, how are these different from Pearl Ex?

Okay- so I think I found out that Perfect Medium resists dye based ink- does Versamark do that? That could be a cool thing. But I'm still not sure if I can use Versamark to do painted pearls.

I also found out that Perfect Pearls contains a fixative that Pearl Ex does not- but can it still be used for all the pearl ex techniques?

I don't know the answer to the rest of your questions, but Versamark does resist dye ink - it's a technique called ghosting in the resources area!

Excellent to know. Thanks! (And thanks for pointing me to the tutorial)
