  • Hi,
    You can dilute up to about 20% with H2O without greatly affecting the paint's ability to adhere particularly to a nonporous surface. Alternatively you can dilute it with another acrylic medium to maintain the paints adhesion properties. The need for this is greatly dependant on the surface you are painting onto. If the surface is nonporous or not particularly absortant we have a colorless extender in the Neopaque range (Lumiere’s opaque counterpart) however that isn’t transparent. In our Textile Color range there is a colorless extender that is fairly transparent. There should be no problem mixing those products together. However, do a test first.
    Yes you can add Pearl-Ex to lumiere.
