    This stunning assortment of light-bodied metallic and pearlescent paints brush on smoothly and are formulated to last.
    Suitable for natural and synthetic fabrics, leather, wood, canvas, vinyl, plastic, rubber, clay, paper and more. They won’t crack, peel or chip, even on flexible surfaces like fabric, leather, vinyl or rubber.
    Soft to the touch and washfast on fabric, Lumiere paints also exhibit unparalleled adhesive properties, even on non-porous surfaces like ceramic and metal.
    Lumiere colours are light fast and weather resistant and their high pigmentation provides excellent coverage, even on dark grounds.
    Lumiere is permanent on most porous or semi-porous surfaces. It can be thinned with water for a more transparent colour or, to maintain the viscosity of the paint and achieve transparent effects, mix Lumiere
    with the Neopaque Extender.
    All Jacquard colours are intermixable and can be applied however you choose:
    with a brush, stamp, block print, sponge, applicator, etc.

    This dazzling assortment of metallic and pearlescent paints brush on like butter and are designed not to spread. Lumiere allows for smooth application on soft or flexible surfaces like fabric, or uneven textures like Styrofoam. Lumiere is also beautiful on paper,
    wood, canvas, leather, polymer clay or almost any other porous or semi-porous surface. It is an archival water-based paint that is wash fast and dry cleanable on fabric after heat setting.
    For best results, heat setting should be done with a dry iron on the highest temperature setting appropriate for the fabric you are working on. The colours can be bright or subtle, even on dark backgrounds. Their high pigmentation provides excellent coverage.

    There are five different categories of colours within the Lumiere line. While all the colours are metallic pearlescents containing mica pigments, there are several different formulas within the line. Knowing the characteristics of each will help you get the very most out of your
    All the colours in the Lumiere line are made with coated mica pigments. The different colours and effects within the line are achieved by modifying the depth of the coating, the particle size of the pigment and, in some cases, by pairing pigments.

    Brass (553) is the brightest and most reflective in this series, as it is formulated with a larger mica particle than any other colour Old Brass (548), on the other hand, is both smaller in particle size and darker in colour, yielding a much more subdued and antique brass. Jacquard offers four golds in the Lumiere line, two of which differ only in particle size of the mica pigment: Bright Gold (552) is just a bigger and brighter Metallic Gold (561). The same is true of the two whites: Super Sparkle (567) is just a bigger, brighter, and thus more sparkly Pearlescent White (568). Jacquard also offers Metallic Russet (566), Pewter (551), Metallic Silver (563), Metallic Copper (564), Metallic Rust (549) and Metallic Bronze (565) in the Lumiere line.

    Formulated with both metallic mica pigments and traditional pigments. This produces two-toned, iridescent effects. These colours are especially dimensional on dark grounds or if they are applied lightly with a sponge, brush or stamp. Three of the four halo colours are formulated with traditional pigments paired with gold mica. Gold has a yellowish colour, so Halo Blue Gold (556) tends to appear more green than blue, while Halo Pink Gold (555) tends to look almost orange. When you look closely, you can see the two distinct colours unblended by your eyes.

    Formulated with white mica pigments paired with traditional pigments. These colours are vibrant and show up especially well on dark grounds. Pearlescent Magenta (573) and Pearlescent Turquoise (571) can almost be thought of as pastel metallics. Pearlescent Blue (570), Pearlescent Violet (569), and Pearlescent Emerald (572) are deep, reflective colours that maintain the rich pearlescence for which the Lumiere line is famous.

    The newest addition to the Lumiere line. These colours were chosen to reflect the palette of the landscape in which Lumiere is manufactured—beautiful Healdsburg, California. The
    Wine Country Colours are made with very fine-ground mica pigments, and are more subdued than the other Lumiere colours These colours do maintain the rich reflective quality of mica, however, and are excellent choices whenever you need a paint to pop just a touch more than a traditional pigment system will. The intensity of these colours coupled with the richness native to mica yields especially deep and vibrant colours You can almost taste Grape (546), for instance, and Burgundy (545) glistens like wine.

    Formulated with interference mica pigments. Interference pigments have a thin coating and are translucent; they therefore look different depending on the surface on which they are applied. On a white background, light shines through the pigment, reflects off the white ground, and shines back out, passing again through the pigment particles. The overwhelming majority of the reflected light is white light, so you see the paint as being only barely tinted—a high-lighting effect. Painted on black, on the other hand, the effect is quite different. Black absorbs light; so the only light that makes it back to your eye is the light that reflects off of the mica surface. Painted on black, the Hi-Lite Colours read well and vividly. To get a sense of this, paint a Hi-Lite Colour on a black and white ground such as a photocopy. All the white areas will become tinted and shiny while the black will become Blue (576), Red (574) or Violet (575), depending on the Hi-Light Colour you use. You can also vary the thickness of application for different effects.
