Perfect Pearls

Perfect Pearls are a Ranger Product and can be found here: http://www.rangerink.com/products/prod_perfectpearls_kits.htm
The pots contain dry pigment with a mica ground for that pearlescent appearance and is similiar to Pearl Ex pigments, except with Perfect Pearls no binder, like Gum Arabic, is required as long as you stamp your image first using either The Perfect medium ink pad or a VersaMark ink pad. Here I've stamped the leave using the Perfect Medium.

Using one of the small brushes included in the Perfect Pearls kit, I've picked up just a bit of the dry pigment from the lid of the pots. Can you see it on my brush? I'm all set then, to brush the pigment over the stamped leaf.

This is the results after the larger brush {also included in the kit} has been to used to gently wipe any access pigment away. {I did alter this pic digitally to show more of the shimmery effect.}The photo below is a comparison photographs. The left on the left is the Perfect Pearl leaf, while the two vibrant leaves were created from the background sheet using the Radiant Pearls.
