Default pear ex info

Pearl Ex powders are the best. I love the shine they add to cards. And the duo and interference colors are so much fun to work with. Below is a link to a site with info you might be interested in.. It shows lots of ways to use the powders.

Stamp an image with your Versamark pad on dark paper and brush on the Pearl-Ex (PE) with a watercolor brush, stipple brush, cotton ball, etc.

OR stick your blender pen right in the jar and "watercolor" with the PE.

OR stamp an image onto acetate, run it through a Xyron and brush the PE onto the sticky side (gorgeous).

OR mix the PE with half and half alcohol to cheap hairspray. A little PE goes a long way. Shake well and spray a sparkly background onto a sheet of card stock for a metalic look.

The quickest way to use Pearl Ex - is use your Versamark (or similar product) and just dab on the Pearl Ex with a paint brush. Then take a larger brush and swab off the excess. That is it! The other links will give you more ideas. good luck!
