Just love these colors! Is it the pearl clay that gives it the glitter effect? and if so where can I purchase this type?
Thanks for any help

Hi Wendy,

Yes, it is the pearl clay that gives it the “glitter” effect. Pearl clay has mica powder in it, which gives it that glowing look. You can get pearl clay with all the other polymer clays at your local craft store. I recommend Premo! by Sculpey brand.
