Lumiere on copper, brass and nickel silver
  • Hi I am a jewellery designer working in these sheet metals. I would like to do some stamping using Lumiere.

    Is there anything I need to know, like do I have to heat finish it? Should I use a primer first or just rough up the surface?

    I do use Renaissance Wax to finish off my work, would this be enough?

    Thanks heaps.

  • Hi,
    The Lumiere is an acrylic so any wax or oil based coating should adhere to it as you can always put oil over acrylic. I would definately advise using a varnish of some kind as there may not be great adhesion between the lumiere and the metal.
