Pigment Powders and Embossing Paste!
Hi everyone, welcome back to the blog! It’s Shari here with a quick technique for you.
I’ve been experimenting with adding iridescent pigment powders (Perfect Pearls) to some Viva Decor black modeling creme. From the front view, the paste looks normal and black.
But when it catches light, the colors come out. Below it looks like a teal green or almost purple, I can’t even describe it. But it’s super COOL!
I’ve shot a video of how I mixed the powder and paste and a peek at how the card came together. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you have a chance to try out mixing some of your pigment powders into your pastes. Go ahead and try other color pastes too!
Dear Shari, your card looks so chic and beautiful! I LOVE the background that you created with the amazing script stencil and the mixed paste with the perfect pearls! I really want to try your technique as I’m sure that the iridescent paste doesn’t really shows its color through the photos. Thank you for this great idea and for the inspiration!

Love this card, Shari. The stencil seems perfect for a card background as it is not too busy and has some open spaces. Nice work, as usual.

Another one my five year old junior crafter loved. She loves blingy, shiny, sparkle. She loves Wink of Stella and she’s a lefty! I think we may try some pasty mixy stuff. I’m always afraid of breaking some unwritten craft rule. I need people like you to come along and blaze the trail! Thanks!
Your card is tasteful and elegant. I love the way it turned out. I want to do this!
I like mixing paste with paints and these products look awesome!
Wow! Another gorgeous card with a very cool technique. I can’t wait to try this effect. I need to buy just a few items & then off & running with ideas I go. I absolutely love Simon Says & all the products are so wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing these lovely ideas. Happy Crafting!!
Stunning & Beautiful!!!
I’m always looking for ways to use the supplies I already have. Love that technique.
