What is chameleon paint?

ColorShift chameleon paint is a metallic acrylic paint that changes color depending on the angle at which light falls on them. They are also known as iridescent paint. 

The chameleon paint effects are formulated with pearlescent particles that change color depending on the perspective from which you look at them. Three to five colors can be seen from a single shade. These paints are very easy to apply, have excellent adhesion and dry fairly quickly. It is best to apply them over a black primer or a black spray primer to achieve even greater color intensity, and then apply a matte, satin, or gloss varnish, depending on the effect you want to achieve. 

Green Stuff World is the brand with the largest variety of chameleon colors for painting figures and scale models, both classic and fantasy or wargames, also stands out for its intensity of color change when light hits it.


How to use chameleon paint

The first thing to keep in mind is that there are 2 types of paint according to their appearance: one colored and one whitish, but do not panic because although it is whitish this is normal and when you paint multiple pearly colors will appear by magic. All you have to do is shake the can well so that there is a perfect mixture of pigment. On the other hand, you have to know that the larger the figure, the greater the appreciation of the effect of the paint. This is also greater on curved surfaces since the light is reflected much better on them. 

How to achieve the Chameleon effect with these paints?

Apply a black or dark base coat, if possible with gloss to achieve a better result. 

It is necessary to apply several very light coats of paint until the color appears. Keep in mind that this paint dries very fast, but you must wait until the previous coat is well dry before applying the next one. Three or four coats should be enough to achieve the desired effect.

Although chameleon paint is very resistant, the varnish is essential to ensure the durability of the paint. You decide if you want it matte or glossy, but think that a surface with a glossy varnish reflects light better and leads to more spectacular colour generation.

What is Metal Filter Interference paint?

Metal Filter paints are transparent acrylic color filters that allow to modify and metalize the color they cover, and therefore, in addition to the existing Colorshift colors, it is also possible to apply these interference filters on the iridescent paints causing displacements of the original colors of the piece within its color spectrum to create new reflections when the light hits it, making it something unique and unmatched.
