Picanté Flake; shifts bright red, deep orange and gold.Download & View a free Lumiere Lusters Lampworking PDF Tutorial.
Lumiere Lusters™ by JetAge Studio are specialty color shifting, heat resistant metal oxide powders and flakes that are magical in lampworked glass, and a multitude of other mediums. These flakes are rated to resist heat up to about 1400°F, and can be worked in soft or hard glasses.
Similar to Dichroic Extract powder, they offer a lot of color-shifting sparkle that changes at the viewed angle. The larger particle sizes create a lot of shine that you cannot get from micas, and give quite a different effect from powdered extract. They're also a great cost effective alternative to dichroic coatings and are more heat tolerant than regular powdered micas. PLEASE NOTE:
Jars are filled by VOLUME
(not actual weight) and are available in 3gr./ml. (aprox. .25 gram actual weight of flake) and 5gr./ml. (aprox. .50 gram actual weight of flake). JetAge does this because the flakes are extremely lightweight, bulky and fragile, and each color actually weighs differently. Likewise, powders are much heavier so there may be more actual product weight than the specified jar size. To manage this, JetAge simply fills each jar up to the top in jar sizes that have been designated by industry standards.
