  • NATURAL MOTHER OF PEARL: Crushed mother of pearl has been used for centuries as a decorative material and to cover up blemishes on furniture and other objects. Mother of pearl is also known for its iridescent qualities, which are created by the fine layers that make up the shell’s surface. The iridescence is caused by light reflecting off these layers at different angles. This is a natural product.
  • CREATE STUNNING INLAY DESIGNS: Compatible with CA glues and epoxies, combine the mother of pearl flakes with epoxy to create resin artwork, or crush the mother of pearl flakes into finer powder for beautiful CA inlay applications.
  • FINE FLAKES: Rather than chips, this Mother of Pearl jar contains fine flakes, which means no grinding is necessary to get the incredible luster into the smallest of cracks and voids.
  • THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS! To name a few, there are woodturning inlays, guitar inlays, shell inlays, dyed pearl inlays, glowing pearl finishes, and more making it the perfect one-of-a-kind product.
