These Jacquard Lumiere products are gorgeous metallic paints that brush on like butter, slightly level once they are down, and stay put since they're designed not to spread. This allows for smooth application on soft, flexible surfaces like fabrics or uneven textures like styrofoam. The paint dries flexible and soft.
These colors can be bright, metallic, garish or subtle...ranging from a sparkle gold to an antique bronze. They are truly opaque and bright, even on dark backgrounds and their high pigmentation provides excellent coverage, great even through an airbrush.
For use on natural or synthetic fibers. Can also be used on leather, wood and paper.
Fixing on fabric: By dry iron or heat. Washable, Drycleanable. Dries soft.
2.25 oz. bottles.
