Magenta 14g Pearl Ex Powder Pigment is a high quality and extremely versatile powdered pigment which will produce an amazing metallic or pearlescent effect, which offers extreme colourfastness and stability.

The Pearl Ex powder pigments range produce vibrant colours and are ideal for use with resins and perfect to add metallic effects to casting and coating projects such as stunning river tables, jewellery, pen blanks, resin art and much more.

Pearl Ex is a safe, inert powder pigment and due to the differing particle size (10-60 microns) across the range of different colours the effect can vary from a smooth pearly lustre to a strong metallic effect. Pearl Ex powder doesn’t contain any metal so will not fade or tarnish over time. The Pearl Ex range all have differing densities and are sold by weight (not volume).

Resin Compatibility

Pearl Ex powder pigments are suitable for use with:

  • Epoxy resins such as our GlassCast® range
  • Polyurethane resins such as our Waterclear Polyurethane Casting Resin
  • Waterclear resins such as our Waterclear Polyester Casting Resin

The Pearl Ex powdered pigments have been tested with products from our own range but should also work well with resins from other manufacturers, however you should always conduct your own tests as to their compatibility with other resin systems and test the effects before completing the project.

How to Use

When using resin systems with the Pearl Ex powder range ‘less is more’. It is best practise to add a small amount and mix well then add more pigment if a more intense colour or metallic effect is required.

Remember that thicker castings will require a lower percentage of pigment because the colour will appear stronger the thicker the section is. Conversely, thinner castings will require a higher percentage of pigment in order to appear to be the same colour as thicker castings.

If you are you are using a resin with a short pot-life it is best to use a small amount of resin, mix in the Pearl Ex powder pigment until you reach the desired colour. Adding small amounts at a time and ensuring no lumps remain in the resin before combining the pigmented resin with the hardener - once the resin and hardener are combined the working time will begin. Alternatively if you are working with a longer pot-life resin use a small amount of combined resin and hardener to mix the powder pigment into. When you are happy no unmixed pigment remains add the rest of the combined resin.

When adding pigments to more reactive materials such as fast curing polyurethanes you will find it helpful to mix the pigment into one side of the resin (either part A or part B) thoroughly before mixing the two parts together and starting the reaction. This allows as much time as is needed to thoroughly disperse the pigment before starting the reaction. If you do choose to pigment just one side of the resin first it's helpful to remember that the addition of the second half of the resin will 'dilute' the tint when you add it.

Work in a well ventilated environment and avoid breathing dust.

Alternative Uses

Pearl Ex powder pigments are also suitable for use in epoxies, resins, paints, pottery, candle making, modelling clay, and other artists mediums – they are NOT for cosmetic use.

Yes, Pearl Ex powders are non-toxic and safe for skin contact so, providing the silicone you're using is also skin safe then there would be no concerns and the pigmented silicone would still be perfectly safe for skin contact.
