Perfect Pearls can be made into translucent finishes simply by adding enough water to form thin paint. They also mix great with acrylic gloss, matte finishing mediums, or glues. Use glazes as a finishing step for watercolor pencils, pastels, permanent inks, etc…My favorite is “Sunflower Sparkle” in the Pastel collection. The particles are very sparkly.
Glazing Over Watercolor Pencils
Add water to Pearl Perfect Pearls (the white one in the Metallics collection) to make a thin glaze. Paint over watercolor pencils to pearlize right on your paper. This will always pearlize (lighter than the original color). To keep colors more intense, use a correlating Perfect Pearls color for the glaze. This process works on light and dark papers. You’ll be amazed at the full range of colors and the dry time in only moments! Yippee!
Glazing Over Pastels
Use a fixative first and glaze with any color Perfect Pearl.
