Pearl Ex. Pearl Ex is another very shiny pigment that’s typically used with polymer clay and other mixed media. It’s a bit less expensive at around 3 US dollars or so for 3 grams. It is most readily available in 3 gram containers, but you can get it in larger 14 gram containers too.
Original Sculpey® is soft and pliable, and it works and feels like ceramic clay but will not dry out when exposed to air. After baking, it can be sanded, drilled, carved and painted with water-based acrylic paints or Sculpey® Glaze. After coating with a few layers of the glaze, you can use any paint you like to finish your piece.
