Basically, it is a bottle of an opaque gel that dries to a pearly finish. It can be used in many applications, such as pearl accents, flower centers, Christmas ornaments and frosting.
Here at the Tukwila store, we had to open up a bottle the minute we received them from the UPS driver! We started with Flamingo Pink!
There are a few tricks to using liquid pearls to get professional results. First, don't shake the bottle, it will cause air bubbles. I always begin by squeezing a small amount onto a piece of scratch paper before I start so if there is an air bubble I don't blurp (yes, this is a crafting word) onto my project.
Put the tip of the bottle close to your paper and squeeze slowly. This creates a round pearl look. Pull the tip away slowly so you don't get a "point" on your pearl.
If you have a point, pick up your project and flick the underside to flatten out the pointy area. This creates a round top on your pearl.
Liquid Pearls will dry to the touch in about 15 minutes. But I always wait overnight before I put a project in the mail, because the pearl may still be wet on the inside and you can squish them. When totally dry, they are super hard.
We also used liquid pearls for frosting on a cupcake and my favorite, on a donut! On this card, glitter was added to the liquid pearls before it dried.
