Why Our Blue Ghost Pearls ®?
Our Blue Ghost Pearl will mix well with any clear paints or tinted candy paints. It has a temperature threshold of about 1600 degrees fahrenhiet. Pearl is a very fine powder and will spray well through airbrushes, powder guns, and HVLP paint guns. It is very light, so it stays well mixed in paint without settling too fast in your gun. Pearls make great tinted clears for light to heavy effects (it’s your choice).
Try this in epoxy resin, polishes, sealers or other coatings for a great custom effect!
One 25 gram bag treats from 2 to 4 quarts of clear. This is mixed in everything from Paint, Powder Coat, dip or other coatings, any clear Polyurethane, shoe polish, or Concrete Sealer. We have used it on shoes, motorcycles, bar-tops and baked into pottery glaze. This is some of the most beautiful and versatile powder you will find anywhere. In the old days, they used to paint Ghost Flames with clear Mica powders because the clear mica reflected one color while letting you see the base color underneath.
Newer cars and motorcycles have ghost pearl effects done in the factory, such as the Lamborghini orange paint with the beautiful gold pearl. Simpler pearlescent white paints that we see on new Cadillacs or Infiniti cars, which are achieved with a simple blue ghost pearl or gold ghost pearl applied over a white base coat. Turning a two-stage paint job into a three-stage paint job is the basic step in creating a quality pearl paint.
With this thought in mind, anyone can make an ordinary paint job into a Ghost pearl paint job. Instead of doing a base-coat clear-coat paint job, add the pearl paint into the middle of the mix. Base-coat, blue ghost pearl paint, clear-coat. We always recommend that people make their own mixes and spray a test panel before doing the entire project and it is always wise to use a base clear, or a binder to mix the pearls with before adding the final clears. The final clear step is only recommended for custom paint, and not for powder coating, gel coating, or faux finish. If you are looking to do a project using these beautiful blue ghost pearls, we have a few suggestions on which colors look good over which base coats…
White base coat:
Use any of the ghost pearls, however keep in mind that the Blue ghost pearls ® gives an iridescent BLUE look in the sun. Blue Ghost Pearls® violet, orange, gold and silver are the most popular colors for white base coats.
Black base coat:
You also may use any of the ghost pearls, but keep in mind that using too much will make the project take on the color of the pearl and overwhelm the black. To get a cool midnight color change effect, keep the ratio of pearl down to about a teaspoon per quart in the clear base or binder. In powder coating, keep the ratio down to a tablespoon per pound and add onto that as needed.
We recommend 1 level teaspoon per sprayable quart of clear for our ghost pearls. 1 heaping tablespoon is added into a pound of clear powder for powder coating. Alter these starting ratios for your specific job.

Blue Ghost Pearl: The Beauty of Iridescence
The color blue has long been associated with serenity, calmness and trust, and the Blue Ghost Pearl is no exception. This captivating hue, with its mysterious and otherworldly appearance, has been inspiring people for centuries. And what makes it even more special is the iridescence that gives the Blue Ghost Pearl its ethereal glow.
Iridescence is a phenomenon where the color of an object appears to change when viewed from different angles, with a rainbow-like sheen. It is caused by the interference of light waves as they pass through a thin layer of material, in this case, the nacre of a pearl. This creates a play of colors that adds depth and dimension to the pearl’s surface, making it even more beautiful and intriguing.
The Blue Ghost Pearl is a freshwater pearl that is known for its unique color and iridescent qualities. It is formed when a mollusk, typically the Chinese River Musk, is exposed to a rare species of blue-colored mussel. This creates a special combination of minerals in the mollusk’s shell that gives the pearl its captivating blue hue. The iridescent quality is a result of the unique layering of the pearl’s nacre, which creates a refraction of light and gives the pearl its mesmerizing glow.
The Blue Ghost Pearl is often compared to the Northern Lights, which is not surprising given its otherworldly appearance. The iridescent quality of the pearl makes it look like a shimmering star that has fallen from the sky. This effect is even more pronounced when the pearl is viewed in natural light, where its play of colors truly comes to life.
In jewelry, the Blue Ghost Pearl is a popular choice for those who are looking for something unique and special. It is often used in pendants, earrings, and necklaces, where it can be appreciated up close and personal. The iridescent quality of the pearl makes it a perfect complement to other gemstones, adding a pop of color and a touch of magic to any jewelry piece.
In conclusion, the Blue Ghost Pearl is a true beauty, and its iridescent qualities make it even more special. It is a symbol of serenity and calm, and its otherworldly appearance is sure to captivate and inspire. Whether you are looking for a special piece of jewelry or simply admire its beauty, the Blue Ghost Pearl is a treasure that is not to be missed.
