Ranger was founded in 1929 and originally manufactured an exclusive line of commercial ink products for the U.S. banking industry. In 1979, Ranger developed the first art stamp pads in unique, vibrant colors. Until 1998, Ranger¹s primary business was private label products for stamp manufacturers. Ranger then began marketing product lines of its own beginning with inks and eventually developing embossing powders. With a continuous focus on innovation, successful lines such as the Adirondack® and Distress™ family of products, Perfect Pearls™ pigment powders and Melt Art® products have become popular worldwide.
“I mix them with distress refills to make a glimmer mist, and I'm experimenting with other ways to combine Perfect Pearls and Distress Ink. They're a great combination because water makes Perfect Pearls permanent, and doesn't cause Distress Ink colors to break down.”
“I've been watching folks use these for years, especially Tim Holtz, but it took a while for me to do it. I love them!! Just stamp the image and dust this magic powder over it. Such a pretty shimmery effect.”
“I just started using perfect pearls, and I love the effect they give my projects, the magic they add. One cool technique is to put distress ink on the craft sheet, spritz it with water, sprinkle on perfect pearls and then put your paper on the sheet and swirl it around. The effect is watercolor glimmer.”
“Used this in a class with clay. We brushed it on before baking the clay. The effect was very nice. Lot's of other uses for this as well. Ranger Industries gives lots of tips on how to use the pigment powders.”
