Welcome to the New LUXE WaterFX info page! It’s filled with tips, tricks and inspiration
LUXE WaterFX is a non resin “wet look” heat resistant, acrylic polymer product (upto 215F) On canvas, LUXE WaterFX feels like a dolphin’s smooth, soft skin when dry. On tile, it has a harder feel and the same wet shine. NO MIXING NEEDED – Just pour straight from the bottle!
A special element unique to LUXE WaterFX is the ability to create a 3D layered effect and it can be used when your acrylics have been dried approx 5 days. (I’ve done it even sooner, but our official recommendation is 5-10 days of dry time before adding LUXE WaterFX as a flood coat)
Victoria Wynn featured LUXE WaterFX on FOXTV!

LUXE WaterFX is heat resistant on tiles with a boiling hot coffee mug on it! A main chain coffee house allowed WYNN modern art. to use their commercial kitchen for testing! We are thrilled with the results- no sticking, no rings, no stains and withstood 215F! (that’s way beyond anything someone could ever drink) 1 8oz. squeeze bottle covers 22-24 tiles (4″ tile) *It also covers a 18″ x 24″ canvas
? The WYNN modern art. team has been using LUXE WaterFX to protect tile coasters for heat resistance, 3D water droplets on painted flowers, beautifully wet looking seascapes, beach themed cutting boards, intensely glorious geodes and so much more!
(The coasters in the info graphic above were created by the WYNN modern art. event coordinator! When not painting, she’s working on our big 3 day LUXE Fluid Art Retreat in Spring 2020— Kari Dennis)
“LUXE WaterFX” comes in “Shimmer” and “Clear” (BOTH HEAT RESISTANT FOR COASTERS)
?CLEAR DESCRIPTION: “Clear” is great for drawing in shapes, designs, animals and wavy lines when you’re not seeking a shimmer- but only seeking the wet look (Arrives in a ready to use 8oz squeeze bottle)
?SHIMMER DESCRIPTION: “Shimmer” is the “Clear” formula with a color shifting opalescent effect making your oceans and geodes come alive! (Arrives in a ready to use 8oz squeeze bottle)
✔️Is it heat resistant for hot coffee mugs? I want to use it on my coasters. YES! Its been tested and found to be heat resistant to boiling hot coffee mugs! How do we know? A main chain coffee house allowed WYNN modern art. to use their commercial kitchen for testing! We are thrilled with the results- no sticking, no rings, no stains.
✔️ How long does it take to dry? Depending upon how thick your placement, plan on 24 hours.
✔️ How much surface does one 8oz bottle cover? It depends how you’re using it. I use it artistically as well as pouring it on as a top coat. As a high gloss top coat, 1 bottle covers approx an 18′ x 24″ canvas
✔️ Does it matter if LUXE WaterFX is warmer or colder? Yes! That’s part of it’s magic. For a thicker application (ie dew drops or water droplets you’ll want it a bit cooler) For a runnier consistency, you’ll want it a bit warmer (immerse the plastic bottle in warm water for just 30 seconds to a minute like you would a baby’s bottle– do not immerse the tip- its not waterproof).
✔️ Will the sun yellow it? No, LUXE WaterFX has a UV protectant!
✔️ Is LUXE WaterFX archival? Yes!
✔️ How does it hold up against water? It is water resistant so wiping it down with a damp rag is no problem.

Purchase 1 of each color to customize any ocean, geode, galaxy or special piece that deserves an extra touch of beauty:
OTHER MIND BLOWING FACTS:
✔️When LUXE WaterFX dries, it feels like a dolphin’s smooth skin rather than rock hard like resin. It doesn’t look or feel like a mirror but more like soft, wet water
✔️LUXE WaterFX also serves as an amazing adherent as well. Sticks those shells and gemstones and mirror right on there- on that note, if your kid is wiggling at church, a dab of this will do the trick ?
✔️ Start on a tile or small canvas to begin playing with it. See how it moves and reacts to other products you’re using it with. I’m using it with acrylics, LUXE Powders, LUXE Gemstones and LUXE Crushed Mirror. It’s magical!
✔️When you warm it just a bit it gets runnier, in a cooler room it’ll pour out thicker (thick is great for water droplets retaining their form, warm is great for pouring larger quantities of it!)
✔️The LUXE WaterFX Glaze is sticky! So just using plastic beneath you won’t be a good enough surface. I have so many pieces of art with little shreds of plastic on it until I found this silicone mat. Silicone is the only thing I’ve found so far that this product doesn’t want to stick to lol https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SH2P63L/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_1?smid=A15TJS9U62HGQJ&psc=1
