Candy Pearls

Candy pearl pigment is a type of fine powder that is used to create a coloured pearlescent or metallic effect in paints, coatings, and other mediums. It is made up of tiny particles that contain reflective flakes or pearls, which create a unique shimmering effect when viewed from different angles.
Candy pearl pigment is typically made from a blend of mica and other minerals that have been coated with metallic or pearlescent compounds. These pigments are then ground into a fine powder and added to a carrier to create the desired effect. The pigment can be mixed with other colours or applied over different base colours to achieve a wide range of shades/effects, from subtle to bold metallics and pearls.

One of the key advantages of candy pearl pigment is its versatility. It can be used in a variety of applications, including automotive paints, industrial coatings, resins, arts and crafts and even cosmetics. When used in automotive finishes, candy pearl pigment can create a deep, rich colour that has a unique depth and lustre. It can also be used to create a shimmering effect in nail polish, eye shadow, and other cosmetic products.
Candy pearl pigment is available in a range of colours, including red, gold, copper, blue, green, purple, and more. It can be used on its own or combined with other pigments and colourants to create custom shades.
