I139. Pearl Ex Pigments
I139. Pearl Ex Pigment Powder (3 grams)

This versatile powder mixes into ink with the addition of water and gum arabic. Or you can add directly to ink to give that ink pearlescence and shine. Pearl Ex creates a metallic effect without being a real metal- it will never tarnish or fade. The different particle sizes produce different effects, from a smooth pearly luster, to a highly metallic sheen.

To make a Pearl Ex ink for calligraphy:
Basic Recipe
Mix 4 parts of pigment with one part gum Arabic (liquid or powder) in a container, add distilled water slowly as you stir until you get the consistency of ink you like.
Exact measurement Recipe
1 teaspoon Pearl Ex pigment
¼ teaspoon gum Arabic (liquid or powder)
1 teaspoon distilled water
Thinner consistency Pearl Ex ink will lie flatter on the paper when dry; a thicker consistency ink (try ½ teaspoon of water) will stand up a bit on the paper when dry, creating a raised effect. Recipe courtesy of Joi Hunt of Bien Fait Calligraphy.

See also I139-S for the Pearl Ex Calligraphy Set of nine 3-gram jars of color good for making ink and three 3-gram jars of powdered gum arabic.

S1026. Kuretake Gold Mica Paste
S1026. Kuretake Gold Mica Paste. 1oz plastic bottle.

This shimmering golden paste has the same mica base as the Kuretake Gold Mica ink (I140). The paste is water-resistant when dry and can be applied pure or diluted with water. It's also ideal for mixing with other watercolor paints, like the Gansai Tambi by Kuretake.

A favorite of Paul Antonio: Flows ever so smoothly in a pointed pen, and it shines even brighter as it dries. I think it is the densest mica gold on the market, and it has the smallest particle size. The fineness of the line you can get without skipping is truly astonishing. You have to get a bottle of this.
