Shimmer Gold Ghost Pearl Paint Job
This 25 gram bag of Shimmer Gold Ghost Pearl paint powder is a great special effects pigment for adding to clear in paint or powder-coating applications. It mixes well with any clear paints or tinted candy paints, and 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. This is very light, so it stays well mixed in paint without settling too fast in your gun, and can make great tinted clears for light to heavy effects (it’s your choice). One 25 gram bag Shimmer Ghost Gold Pearl paint powder treats from 2 to 4 quarts of clear. Shimmer Ghost Gold pearl paint powder has more sparkle than normal pearl, so it really stands out in the bright light!
White base coat:
Use any of the ghost pearls, but keep in mind that the red ghost pearl will give you a iridescent pink look in the sun. Blue, 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.
Red, Burgundy, or Orange base coat:
We highly recommend any of our Shimmer Gold ghost pearl paint powders, including the shimmer gold or the satin gold. Also, Blue pearl, red pearl, and violet pearls make for great effects over the darker shades of red.
Blue base coats:
For very light blues (like cornflower blue), we have seen excellent results using gold ghost pearl, but for a cool color shift on any shades of blue, a violet ghost pearl will give you a cool purple color shift in the sun. Silver ghost pearl paint can also give a nice subtle effect to the darker blues. Green can give an awesome pearl effect over most blue bases as well.
Yellow base coat:
We highly recommend that you try using green ghost pearl for the lemony yellows, and gold ghost pearl for the darker racing yellows. Gold Pearl Paint has been seen on newer Lamborghini’s over yellow as well.
Green base coat:
Gold ghost pearl looks great on green base coats. We have also seen good results with orange and red ghost pearls.
Pink base coat:
Believe it or not, you will find that silver ghost pearl looks awesome over pink, as does the red ghost pearl.
Purple base coat:
Try our Red Ghost Pearl, Green Ghost Pearl, or Silver Ghost pearl.
