Question New Stamper. Have a Question?

Hi.

I was browsing the technique area and came across a word that I have no clue about. The word is Luminere. What is it? I would appreciate a response to my inquiry so that I can give the technique a try.

Lumiere is like a pearl ex powder. It gives a nice glitter to your paper or design.
If you have an SU! Catty it is on page 228. It shows what it looks like.
Hope this helps.

Thanks Melanie for the info. The funny thing is that I purchased Pearl Ex powder over the summer after seeing a project at Michael's but never knew it was called Luminere. I stamped a birdhouse with Pearl Ex powder and it came out fabulous. I have a lot to learn but I am excited about trying everything.

Actually it is not a powder-it is a paint and has a nice pearly quality to it. SU sells it in white-and I love dabbing it on a background and then brushing pearl ex on top of it-gorgeous irridescent background!

I thought Luminere was the company that manufacturers Twinkling H20's, Radiant Pearls and Primary Elements.

Default Lumiere vs. Luminarte

camsmom is correct lumiere is an artist quality acrylic paint or at least that's what my bottle tells me. What stampin up carries is the white which is sparkly like pearl ex that's because there is mica which is what causes the very fine sparkles. Mica is used in a lot of the shimmery products. Another cool thing about lumiere is that it can be used on fabric and if it is heat set with an iron it can be washed and dry cleaned. I haven't done this myself but I'm pretty sure it would work well. Lumiere is produced by Jacquard.

Now Luminarte is the company that makes radiant pearls, twinkling H20's, and primary elements. Radiant pearls are a liquid paint with mica. Twinkling H20's are a beautifully vibrant watercolor that has mica, and primary elements is the mica by itself just like pearl ex. They actually sell different liquid solutions that allow you to do different things with the primary elemens. I believe one is for paper, another is for glass and plastic, and I think there is yet another but I can't remember at the moment. http://www.luminarteinc.com/
