Colour Transition Paint: Silver-Green to Burgundy

These paints are often called Chameleon Paints or Colour Shift Paints.

Colours of this Chameleon Paint

The pictures show a single painted surface. They show the typical colours that this paint displays at various viewing angles.
The colour of this paint changes from Silver-Green to Burgundy as the viewing angle changes. During the transition visible colours include Violet, Purple, Magenta and Crimson.
The close up picture shows how application brush marks can show as different colours and create a 'wood grain' appearance.
Although this paint has some hiding power, the background colour has a big influence on the final appearance. This paint gives a strong colour shift effect when painted over black and a weaker colour shift effect when painted over white.

Suggested applications

  • Create your acrylic artwork including some black. Once sufficiently dry, use a paint brush to apply this paint over black areas to achieve awesome iridescent colour shift effects. 
  • Use it as a paint in acrylic pours to achieve iridescent colour shifting effects. Most effective using Dutch Pour technique over black.
  • Perfect for cupboard doors. Paint these with a sheen black such as our Arts & Crafts Black thinned with a little Flow Control Medium and then apply this Colour Transition paint over the black. You will see these change colour as the doors open and close.
  • Paint your table top with a sheen black and apply this Colour Shift paint over the black. You can place a sheet of glass or even a layer of clear resin over the paint once it has dried for a few days. 
  • Paint a feature wall sheen black and apply this Colour Transition paint over the black. The wall will appear different colours along its length
  • Paint a surface using one of our Arts and Crafts Paints (undiluted), using a paint brush. This will leave some brush marks. Paint over with this Colour Transition Paint to create a wood-grain effect. 

Important points

This is a special effect paint that reflects and refracts light in unique ways to generate a range of visible colours. The underlying colour and texture of a surface will influence the visual appearance. 

Comparing all our Colour Transition Paints

Fuchsia to Gold: This paint has good opacity and thus gives a similar effect over black, white and colours. With 2-3 coats it can completely hide the colours underneath it. 
Silver Green to Burgundy: This paint is semi-translucent and the effect it gives is dependent on the colour it is painted over. It gives the strongest colour shift effects over black and fairly weak colour shift effects over white. 
Blue to Mauve: This paint is translucent and its effect is highly dependent on the colour it is painted over. It has a strong colour effect on black and very weak colour effect on white. Excellent for mother-of-pearl effects.
