    I know of some web site or article I might have on this topic. I'll search it out and get back to you. I have a good friend who is a stamper. I'll check w/her.

    Hi Stacy
    The word from my friend says she uses Pearl ex for adding pigment or irridescents. She uses it in paint mediums mostly. She says other stampers mix it with gum arabic so it adheres.
    She thought you might want to google Tim Holtz or Ranger Arts or Inks to get more info.
    Hope this helps!

    alcohol inks
    Alcohol inks allow crafters to color a variety of surfaces, particularly the non-absorbent surfaces such as plastic and metal.

    Applying these inks requires some basic tools (such as an applicator - Colorbox Stylus and a white foam tip was used - and hand protection). Inks are sold under several brands including Fiesta and Ranger.

    Some solvent based re-inkers (such as Staz-on) will behave similarly to alcohol inks.
    Ink was applied to the plastic beads.

    After the ink dried, it was then partially removed by using rubbing alcohol on a tissue. This gave a weathered/aged look.
    Alcohol inks was also applied to a clear plastic sticker.

    The first layer was light, and so additional drops were added. The drops were spread around the sticker with a Stylus tool and a white foam applicator, used in a pouncing motion. (Wiping tends to remove color; pouncing tends to blend or spread color.) The sticker was then stamped.

    A scrap of metallic paper was stamped with the same design, and the sticker was layered onto the paper.
