Lefranc & Bourgeois Flashe Vinyl Artists Paint
Since day one, Lefranc Bourgeois has sought to make each colour more than just a tint: a vibrant and visceral blend of texture and emotion. The company has always known the importance of bringing colour to life and giving each artist the possibility to transcend their emotions, their art. For almost 300 years, Lefranc Bourgeois has been striving for innovation, to facilitate absolute freedom of artistic expression for artists everywhere. The unique characteristics of FLASHE are testament to this.
FLASHE is a pioneering vinyl-based paint that is characterized by its matt properties and its intense covering power on a wide variety of supports. It enables the artist to paint on any painting surface, with a strong paint film that maintains the power of the colours. Because FLASHE is made with a different resin than acrylic paints, it produces different results. It is much more than a matt acrylic paint – it unleashes the intensity of the pigments and the luminosity of the colours with a matt finish.
FLASHE can be applied with any type of brush without being diluted. It can also be applied with a sponge brush, a flexible spatula or, for effects, a paint-spray gun, or even with an airbrush, diluting as desired.
Pure or diluted with water, FLASHE makes it possible to create vibrant backgrounds.
Dilute with between 1/3 and 2/3 water as desired, to create washes and patinas.
• Creamy texture enables spontaneous painting.
• Supple, elastic texture which transforms into a strong film.
• Good coverage*, especially for opaque colours, and so can be used as an undercoat for oil or acrylic for large formats and matt colours.
