The Opalescent effect is a unique creation of Stardust and a major innovation in terms of special effects in the world of paints.
The Opal effect is a pearly effect of white color, creating variable colored reflections depending on the viewing angle. The Opal effect is particularly reminiscent of the mother-of-pearl forming the inside of shells.
This multi-colored interferential pearlescent effect is particularly well suited for painting a bike frame because the tubular shapes of the fork, frame and even the rims allow the multi-colored reflections to vary.
