    Been pulling my hair out trying to find a supplier that carries the full line of pearl-ex powder pigments & powdered dyes. When I need carbon black, I gotta go with supplier #1. If I need flamingo pink, gotta go with supplier #2. True blue? Supplier #3 carries that color. Makes me crazy. Finally found them. There's a craft store in Florida that carries the whole line for something like $3.60 per container. I ordered from them the evening of Wednesday 7/15 and it was delivered Monday 7/20 via UPS. Very happy. So, I'm hoping all you fish guys out there will support them, so they can stay in business forever and continue to sell me my powders! Their website is www.in2art.com. And, no, I'm not an owner, friend, family member, or anything to them other than a customer: totally an unsolicited testimonial.

    I ordered the set from Joe Kulis but it was missing a couple colors that Rick was using in his videos. Get online to Misterart.com, go into paints and pigments and pearlex has everything you need there. Bigger containers too,

    You're talking about the combo set with the little jars. I'm talking about being able to buy the larger individual jars of exactly what you need after the combo kit starts running out. And copper's right. Even the combo kit doesn't include the full line of available colors.

    Good grief y'all. Had no idea this would turn into a debate. The Dick Blick website carries the combo kits, the largest of which includes 32 colors. You can also buy 24 colors individually through their website. The Joann website carries only the 32-color kit and some smaller kits -- no individual colors on the website. Not familiar with innate.com, so that may be another supplier available that's doing it right.

    There are a total of 40 Pearl-ex Powders available from Jacquard: 16 traditional colors, 16 pearlescents, 5 interference, and 3 duos. If you want carbon black, salmon pink, pumpkin orange, flamingo pink, sparkling copper, etc., you have to go someplace other than DickBlick.com. If you want to replace individual colors from your set when they run out, you have to go someplace other than Joann.com. What originally put the bee in my bonnet was that I needed two specific colors, and I couldn't find a single supplier that sold both colors (I think they were flamingo pink and misty lavender, but I wouldn't swear to it). It was such a frustration for me, I figured the end result of my search would prove useful to others. www.in2art.com carries all 40 colors plus all of the procion dyes, and they of course offer all the kits as well. One stop shopping.

    Hey Joe,
    I bought 3 different sets and none of them have charcoal in them, at least mine didn't. But thats not a problem. I PM'd Rick and he give me a website, Misterart.com that carries each individual color.

    I bought a set from you and it didn't have the orange, salmon pink, or carbon black in it. I went elsewhere and got them. No biggie.

    But I'm glad this thread came up as I will be ordering the charcoal, pink, and orange.
