Color Shift Paint for a Dragon

Pretty nice! Now I have to ask if they look even better in person?


Seeing as the appearance of these types of paint vary with the viewing angle, and that our eyes give us two slightly different angles compared to a single point of view camera lens; with the right light source, the effect must be even more impressive.


They do look better in person, I think.  


Figuring out how to photograph them was something of a challenge.

Liquitex and Golden have interference paints that will work for color shift.  I have a green, orange, and green-violet. They are clear acrylic with color flakes. Paint model area with a base color (let dry) then use thin coats of the interference color to get the color shift.

I use Golden brand and they also have red, blue, gold, and maybe a silver. I have the 1 ounce bottles found at art stores and online.
