Our offer includes : 1L of chameleon paint + 1L of thinner
1K Basecoats are automotive solvent-based paints that produce a very thin film and that dry very quickly by evaporation. The 2L cans are pure colours to be diluted with the thinner included in the kit.
The chameleons have the power to change of colour depending on the viewing angle: their intense iridescent colours, their pearly effect with their multiple colours shifts can create impressive visual effects on a car body, a design furniture or on a sculpture. They are fascinating and fairly easy to apply.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
The application is made in 3 successive steps : background, chameleon and clearcoat
BASECOAT: Start with the background (it must be a black paint or primer).
(Product available in section « Basecoat »)
CHAMELEON: Spray very thin coats (4 to 5) with the gun, until full appearance of the chamelon shade. The passes dry immediately, it’s not necessary to wait between each coat to apply the next one. Avoid thick coats.
TOPCOAT: Clear within 30 minutes, with any type of clearcoat of good quality (see our section 'Topcoats '). Chameleons have an illimited resistance to sun.
* Our products are delivered with instructions for use.
