How to make Pearl Ex powder permanent on polymer clay.

Velia asks:
After baking, my polymer clay faces were painted with Pearl Ex Series one powders. The eyes with acrylic paints. When dry, I sprayed with a fixative - however, I find that the Pearl Ex comes off. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way this problem can be corrected by using other metallic paints?

You should paint the faces with the Pearl Ex BEFORE baking. It bonds to the polymer and has a lovely sheen after baking.

Hope that helps,
Judi and Sherry
