Powdered Pigment Techniques Cover

Do you have a jar of powdered pigments, like Pearl Ex or Perfect Pearls, but don’t know what to do with it? You are in for a treat because there is so much possibility in that jar!

This eArticle looks at both pigments that include a binder (like Perfect Pearls or Lindy’s Stamp Gang’s Mica Powders) and those without (like Pearl Ex or Luminarte’s Primary Elements.) Techniques in this eArticle include mixing with a binder, dry dusting, painting with dry pigments, two ways to use them with watermark ink, two ways to use them with embossing powder, mixing with water to make paint or spray, using with stamp inks or art mediums and using with wet or dry adhesives.

UPDATED 2/4/16: This eArticle includes numerous links to external articles on the topic. I tested all of the links and updated a few that had changed (mostly due to product company changes.) I also updated VSN information found in the final pages.
