Perfetto's line of Faux Colorants, universal colorant, and Dispersion colorants can all be used to tint paint.
Faux Colorants are the milds Line of pigments. Followed in concentration by Universals, and the most concentrated is the Dispersion line.
These high-quality pigments tint the acrylic base around the mica powder Adding to the dimension and depth effects metallic paint offers.
For most materials, light will either hit an object and bounce off of it (while some energy absorbed as heat), such as a door, or pass through it, such as a window. However, there are a small number of materials that do both.
Iridescent mica powders have a couple of very unique characteristics. What makes a mica "iridescent" rather than shiny or metallic in appearance comes down to some interesting science behind how light interacts with different surfaces and materials.
When light strikes an iridescent mica, it is refracted. Just as in a prism, the wavelengths of light are split apart and sent in somewhat different directions. The resulting effect this generates varies greatly from material to material. But in practical effect, this means the colors achieved from each type of mica vary greatly.
Iridescent Mica will change the color it appears to be based on the angle from which you are viewing it. Some iridescent Micah is intermixed with purely reflective Particles of mica flake and those colors are refracted differently based on the angle of view.
Iridescent mica and its color changing abilities are a keystone of faux finishing and decorative coatings. mixable with Perfetto Universal and Faux colorants. an even broader assortment of amazing mica colors can be achieved.
Mica is a form of silicate, relatively inert, naturally occurring mineral, available in a number of different colors, textures, and sizes. Natural mica is found in many different types of rock but decorative mica is primarily found in thin crystalline layers of near granite
You can find it in a wide range of products from concrete to joint compound to makeup.
In decorative and faux finishing applications we use small medium and large flake mica and virtually every size particle in between. While mica is found in many places around the world. Good quality colored mica comes from just a few of the mica mines around the world.
