Our Ghost Pearls® made of tiny transparent mica particles micro-encapsulated in titanium dioxide provide a solid color over black, and an iridescent reflection over other colors. When looked at under a microscope, these Ghost Pearls are actually transparent, allowing people to see the colors underneath. When a Black base is used, people can only see the reflecting colors, hence making a midnight pearl effect.
Using our Ghost pearls ® paint, you can achieve brilliant graphics and irridescent color-changing effects on both light and dark base coats! Just one bag of ghost pearl can treat more than an entire gallon of clear coat. Also used in any clear paint, gelcoat, and powder coat. Use in your faux finish glaze inside your home, or in concrete and tile sealer for the perfect floor or concrete counter top!
Our Pearl powders vary in size and are extremely durable for use in your clear coat, powder coatings, and have an incredible variety of other uses, ranging from pottery glaze, home faux finishes, to screen printing, to plastics manufacturing. What makes pearls so versatile and durable? Our pearls are tiny particles of mica (a very shiny metallic particle) that are micro-encapsulated in a shell of titanium oxide. Different thicknesses of this titanium oxide shell reflect light differently, giving a color-change appearence. There are no color pigments to fade! Will withstand temperatures up to 1600 degrees fahrenheit (900 C). Your base coat is still visible, but it will reflect differently when it is hit by direct light, giving a light reactive effect to your custom pearl paint or powder-coat. Ghost pearls look completely different sprayed over different color base coats. They can accent a white, green, or red, but will create brilliant “midnight” color effects sprayed over black. For instance, if you wanted a brilliant midnight blue color, use our Blue Hue Ghost Pearl sprayed over black.
Blue Ghost Pearls 1600ºF temp threshold, good for paint, powder coat, pottery glaze, shoe polish, and any clear medium.
