prismatic lacquers?

Posted in Custom Workstation

What can anyone tell me of them? I found one from green to blue. What dose it do? Is it just a clear finish that give a mother of pearl effect shading between the two colors? Any help would be appreciated.

Awesome! That's what I wanted to know! Thanks I kinda thought they might be that but then I was worried it was something else? Something I didn't know were very helpful!

Prismatic laquers? First of all are you using an airbrush or spray cam? These are made to be sprayed on! I'm not sure how a brush would work! You need to use a primer for plastic. I've heard of acrylic beimg used as a primer but as most laquers destroy acrylics, I would use something over that before applying the laquer paint. Prismatic colors change colors at different angles as light hits them differently. For example green to blue would change from green to blue at different angles! Some automotive companies and custom car enthusiasts use this paint because of it's unique effect. I would recommend wet sanding to at least a thousand grit amd applying a minimum of three coats to get the effect. Don't apply the coats to thick though and be sure to hold whatever you are spraying with, if you are spraying, about 30cm or approximately a foot from the plastic. Hope that helped a little.
