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.

You can download the OPAL color chart in the PDF at the bottom of the page

> The choice of the OPAL color, must be done AFTER THE ORDER BY EMAIL.

Summary of application :

  • OPAL paint is a colorless liquid that dries very quickly

* If you don't want to varnish immediately, then sand with our grey abrasive sponge after drying, before working, and before varnishing, without time constraint.

** a bi-component spray can contains a hardener that is triggered with a button. It is therefore a superior quality product in terms of resistance, but for single use only.

The different types of OPAL paints :

The reflections vary with cool or warm tones; one reference can show 2 to 4 colors of reflections.

The pearls are extremely fine for the OPAL series, and of medium size for the high intensity OPAL QUASAR range.

Their appearance is invisible without direct light.

Additional information :

It is possible to change the background color, keeping of course very light tones, like gray, light blue, yellow.... The color effects will always be surprising and unique!

For these backgrounds, we can use a RAL or PANTONE paint available on our site
