Lumiere Lusters™ by JetAge Studio are specialty color shifting, heat resistant metal oxide powders and flakes that work glittery magic in lampworked glass, and a multitude of other mediums. These flakes are rated to resist heat up to about 1400F, and don't have a specific coefficent. Similar to Dichroic Extract powder, they throw off a lot of color-shifting sparkle depending on the angle viewed. 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. Jars are filled by volume, and are available in 3 grams (sample size), 5 grams and 10 grams.

Here you'll find our other lower temperature, specialty Lumiere Lusters™ pigments. These pigments may not be suitable for use in lampworking, or for work with temperatures over 400°F, but they are fabulous on polymer clays, in resins, paints, or other creative mediums that don't require high heat. Many of these pigments are color shifting, highly reflective and luminous. With all mediums where the lusters are used as a surface treatment, we recommend sealing them with your sealant of choice to make sure their color and shine endures.
