“Two years ago, about the time I became extraordinarily interested in mixed media, I began to incorporate more and more of Jacquards products into my designs. I found their paints were very durable for wearables and their inkjet transfers were superior to others available. Their transfer sheets are seamless with the fabric and I have never had a problem washing my garments. Gradually, I started to play around with Pearl Ex pigment powders and Lumiere paints. I found I loved them! The wide mouth bottle on the Lumiere paints saves me a lot of time pouring paints. A little thing I know but when you craft like I do, A big thing!”
