    @Abdullah TiO2 will not contribute any pearlescence, it is mica treated TiO2 that pearls. Good news: you don’t need to use much - 0.20% is plenty. Bad news: you’ll need to have a suspending agent in there to keep it in place. Polyquaternium 10 may be able to contribute just enough yield vale to do the job.

    @chemicalmatt do EGMS and EGGS also need suspending agent? 

    Do HPMC and cationic guar also work as suspending agent?
