StardustColors Opal Paints are probably one of the most beautiful and amazing paints available.
These opalescent paints are unique in the world and display iridescent reflections identical to those of mother-of-pearl produced by certain shells, or to the colours of some precious stones and white opals.
Sometimes called "Mother-of-pearl", the 11 shades of the Opal range outmatches all known paints in terms of beauty with their fascinating aspect. Each Opal paint is truly unique, revealing a rainbow of subtle reflections.
Stardust Opal paints are available in a few rare and wonderful colours, from pale cream or white, to pink, lilac, green, orange or grey. From a scientific point of view, with their physical and chemical properties, Opal paints create colour from light:
Dichroic effect: When the observer moves around an Opal paint, the light plays with and transforms the colours that the eyes see. The product reflects and reacts to light by displaying a very intense "metallic electric white" surface. The shades are luminous and changing, depending on the angles of the surface and the observer perspective.
OPAL JASPER (OP10030 ), the most powerful shade of the Opal series. It displays very intense reflections: a beautiful and mysterious sparkle seems to come from this paint, which attracts much attention. The colour ranges from warm to cool tones, from peachy orange to bright green.
With its radiance of cold tones, the SPECTROLITE (OP10010) is more subtle than the OPAL JASPER, but as impressive. It offers coloured flashes whose colour spectrum ranges from green to purple. The cold aspect is impossible to catch and the eye is drawn by the colour play every time.
TOURMALINE (OP13450): This shade recalls some precious stones exhibiting rich and bright shades. Soft and elegant, this Opal colour offers "white" metallic reflections with a colour transition from bright green to electric pink through blue.
ABALONE PEARL (OP2150)
This Opal Blue Red shade is lighter and more discreet; it displays a perfectly white colour in the absence of lighting or direct light:
Its delicate shades of electric blue, reminiscent of the blue lagoon, turn into pink from the downing sun
SIBERIAN MOONSTONE (OP10020): Sparkling reflection with icy shades of moonlight, translucent, clear and ghost-like, ranging from pale pink to turquoise
CRISAL AQUA AURA (OP10040): This Opal colour with double green and pure blue reflections exhibits a pearly white gloss on all its surface. It has special light reflection properties and its soft electric sparkle inspires peace.
