Very high quality water-based paint
from Long Island, NY
Comments about Lefranc & Bourgeois Flashe Vinyl Paint:
Flashe is a heavily-pigmented paint that dries rapidly and has a very matte finish. It applies like acrylic And doesn't have acrylic's plastic-like finish. It canbe used at full strength or diluted.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

My new favorite paint.
By Mama's Boy
from Frederick, Md.
I truly enjoy working with this paint product. I love the fluid consistency. I found I can easily thicken it with acrylic gel when desired. The opaque pigments give perfect coverage. I have also made the paint more transparent by adding clear gel or glazing medium when needed. I plan to continue to work with this brand of paint. It appears to be exactly what I have been looking for.
Dries in a Flashe
By Paper trail
from Chicago, IL.
Works a differently than acrylic paint and dries flat (depends on your look). I like that it dries fast and has that flat look. Can use polymers with it. Like the color range and I like to mix my own colors, nice shades.

Favorite Brand - A Canadian Review
from Edmonton AB
Fellow Canadians - this stuff is fantastic. I am going to shed light on the costs though. On top of the American/Canadian exchange rate, high international shipping costs, this stuff is made in France so there are going to be duty charges and GST costs to cover for this paint when it arrives at your door. In the end the cost for us Canucks is pretty much double when all is said and done. Knowing that - I love this stuff. If you don't want to fall in love and pay the piper on this - run away and don't look back. Once you start it's a gateway to a whole new realm of paint desire. The colors are stunning. The fluorescent colors are perfection - I especially love the Bengal Red and Grenadine...really unique vibrant colors. I find the black to be very matte - almost a graphite flat black. Fluorescent white is not very opaque but works well to lighten colors and maintain translucent tones.
from Buffalo new york
You can go thin as there is a high pigment content. Colors are beautiful.The jars are wide and easy to use. They could be a bit More re-Sealable-Easy clean up.I love Flashe
from Port St Lucie FL
This paint has so much pigment that you can add any acrylic material or water to it and the color stays strong. So many ways to use it! I just love it.

By Violet Painter
I love these flashe paints, the colors are beautiful, the consistency very nice. They do tend to be messy, hard to keep from getting all over the lid edges, hard to open sometimes, can dry out a little, but worth all the inconveniences. I have applied acrylics on top of the flashe, and oil stick, great results.
Best water base paint
Easy excess.workable with any medium. Pigment is very vivid too.

LOVE 100% Lefranc & Bourgeois Flash
from New Zealand
I adore the Matt Finnish with no gloss interference flash is easy to work BUT I am yet to find a Matt varnish to protect the surface that is the same finish as it can mark easily and is therefore difficult to clean.Even with this detail I still love flash, I paint on canvas and paper.
