    I'm working on a project for our ladies banquet.
    The theme is "Pearl of Great Price".
    I will be painting wood balls to look like large pearls.
    Anyone know of a paint that has a 'pearlized' effect?
    A real good sheen? One that you have tried...I don't want to purchase and it just be a dull white or something.
    Thank you [​IMG]

    There is a glaze that you can get in the paint department of Lowes or Home Depot and add it to the paint and it has a gorgeous pearl effect.

    There are some really great pearly spray paints available. Check a hardware or craft store
