Lefranc Bourgeois Flashe Vinyl Ruby Red 125ml
Lefranc & Bourgeois Flashe are a range of vinyl emulsion paints that offer flat matt coverage on a wide variety of surfaces.
First developed in the 1950s, Flashe’s adhesion properties allows the artist to work indoors or out on canvas, paper, walls, glass, wood, with brushes, paint guns, or sponges. Vinyl emulsions are similar to acrylic emulsions, however, vinyl emulsion paints have a very consistent matt film which is very popular with abstract artists, among others. Flashe is suited to traditional painting surfaces and also offers good adherence and resistance to weather, making it ideal for fresco and wall painting, faux finishes, theatre decorations, and more. Flashe is highly pigmented and can be diluted with water to create a range of results, from highly opaque finishes to a transparent watercolour effects. The colours have a uniform 30 minute drying time and once dry they are water-resistant. They can only be removed with alcohol-based solvents.
