Pigment Powders and Chalks

Pigment Powders

Pigment powders are just what the title suggests ground pigment. They are very versatile and can be used in a variety of ways. Popular brands are;

  • Perfect Pearls by Ranger (These include a binder, which makes them more stable)
  • Pearl Ex

Some great things to do with Pigment Powders are;

  • Mix the powder with water to form a paint
  • Mix the powder with a dimensional glue to form a lacquer or glaze
  • Dust them dry over an image stamped with clear embossing powder
  • Perfect Pearls make a great pearlescent spray if mixed with water in a Mini Mister


You can buy chalks in a variety of different forms, depending on how you like to use them. The most common kinds available are;

  • Pallets; soft chalks are pressed into a pallet
  • Sticks; square section sticks of colour
  • Pencil; a wooden barrel with a chalk core

A few ideas for what you can do with powders and chalks could be;

  • Create a background
  • Colour a main image
  • Highlight an embossed area
  • Colour an embellishment

These are just to get you started, as ever it is your creative journey, follow your heart just play with chalks and see what you discover.
