Blue Ghost Pearls
This 25 gram bag of Blue Ghost Pearls ® powder is a great special effects pigment for adding to clear in automotive paint or powder-coating applications.
Why Our Blue Ghost Pearls ®?
Our Blue Ghost Pearl is guaranteed to mix well with any clear paints or tinted candy paints. It has a temperature threshold of about 1600 degrees fahrenheit. Pearl is a very fine powder and will spray well through airbrushes, powder guns, and HVLP paint guns. It is very light, so it stays well mixed in paint without settling too fast in your gun. Pearls make great tinted clears for light to heavy effects (it’s your choice).
One 25 gram bag treats from 2 to 4 quarts of clear. This is mixed in everything from Paint, Powder Coat, dip or other coatings, any clear Polyurethane, shoe polish, or Concrete Sealer. We have used it on shoes, motorcycles, bar-tops and baked into pottery glaze. This is some of the most beautiful and versatile powder you will find anywhere. In the old days, they used to paint Ghost Flames with clear Mica powders because the clear mica reflected one color while letting you see the base color underneath.
Newer cars and motorcycles are seen with ghost pearl effects done in the factory, such as the Lamborghini orange paint with the beautiful gold pearl. Simpler pearlescent white paints that we see on new Cadillacs or Infiniti cars, which are achieved with a simple blue ghost pearl or gold ghost pearl applied over a white base coat. Turning a two-stage paint job into a three-stage paint job is the basic step in creating a quality pearl paint.
With this thought in mind, anyone can make an ordinary paint job into a Ghost pearl paint job. Instead of doing a base-coat clear-coat paint job, we add the pearl paint into the middle of the mix. Base-coat, blue ghost pearl paint, clear-coat. We always recommend that people make their own mixes and spray a test panel before doing the entire project. It is always wise to use a base clear, or a binder to mix the pearls with before adding the final clears. The final clear step is only recommended for custom paint, and not for powder coating, gel coating, or faux finish. If you are looking to do a project using these beautiful blue ghost pearls, we have a few suggestions on which colors look good over which base coats…
White base coat:
Use any of the ghost pearls, but keep in mind that the Blue ghost pearls ® will give you a iridescent BLUE look in the sun. Blue Ghost Pearls® violet, orange, gold and silver are the most popular colors for white base coats.
Black base coat:
You also may use any of the ghost pearls, but keep in mind that using too much will make the project take on the color of the pearl and overwhelm the black. To get a cool midnight color change effect, keep the ratio of pearl down to about a teaspoon per quart in the clear base or binder. In powder coating, keep the ratio down to a tablespoon per pound and add onto that as needed.
We recommend 1 level teaspoon per sprayable quart of clear for our ghost pearls. 1 heaping tablespoon is added into a pound of clear powder for powder coating. This is a starting ratio and can be changed for your specific job.
