Default Lumiere Lusters

Forgive me if there's already a thread started, I couldn't find one.
Does anyone have images they can share and advise as well of glass beads using Jetage Studio's Lumiere Lusters? I'm thinking I like the bigger flakes.
Thanks!!

Sorry, no. It would be interesting to see such a comparison.

I sure would love to try some as they are beautiful but saw there are some compatibility issues somewhere.

Here's a previous thread:

I never got much better with the stuff, but Beadgal had some lovely examples on her website.

Thanks everyone. So another question, are there colors that hold up in the flame better than other colors?

Since I'm distracted by anything that's shiny or sparkly I decided to order a few jars of the larger flakes. I'll post some pics after I receive it and practice.

Please let us know. I have a jar of the flakes but for use with nail polish. I don't have time to do it this week, but if I find myself with a few moments in the future, I'll give it a go too.

In the November issue of Soda Lime Times Renee (owner of Jet Age Studio) shows how to make a twistie with lumiere lusters.

Size:  20.1 KBSo now that Yonil posted a perfect tutorial in the Bathroom section on how to post a picture...Thank you Yonil! Here are my first test beads. I wasn't going for shape just samples of how this stuff works.
The color isn't as intense as it is before it's heated but I think it has potential.
