Beautiful Iridescent Pearlescent Pigments that change colour as the angle of viewing changes. At direct angles they appear one colour (the first colour in the name) and at flat angles they appear another colour (the second colour in the name). During transition between the two main colours a number of other colours are visible, some only at very specific angles. The actual effect you see will depend on film thickness and background colour so it is difficult to describe their exact effects.
These pigments are a specialised type of Pearlescent Pigment based on synthetic mica.
The pigments have quite a low hiding power (low opacity) and are thus not suitable to put into paints without modification, but in applications such as resins the effects are awesome. On curved surfaces all the colours are visible at the same time to a single observer because the viewing angle changes around the curve. On small flat surfaces the observer or the object has to move to see the changing colours. On long flat surfaces such as a wall, plank or pole, all colours can be visible at the same time as the viewing angle is different between close and far-off parts of the object. Very strong colour shift effects can be realized when these pigments are applied over a black background.
