Flashe Matte Artist’s Color
Lefranc & Bourgeois
Flashe is an extra fine, vinyl-based professional grade of matte permanent colors. It offers optical characteristics similar to gouache, old tempera paints and primitive painting grounds – the result is matte, velvety and opaque. Extremely highly pigmented, Flashe may be diluted with water to create a range of possible techniques – from dense, highly opaque application to transparent watercolor effects. Flashe is so versatile, it may be used inside or outside. The supple film offers good adherence and resistance to weather aggression – ideal for fresco and wall painting, faux finish, theater decoration, etc. It is also compatible with paper, canvas and other supports or for preparing grounds. Flashe colors may be applied using brushes, paint guns or sponges.
