  1. Well I'm pretty sure that color shift is only painted over a smooth black base coat and no normal paint should be applied over it or you will lose some or all of the shift. With KBS, I always use 2 to 3 coats. The directions say for marine application 3 coats are required.
  2. I don’t think the fish care if you use color shift at all. It all boils down to how much color shift YOU and your customers want.
  3. I guess it's like the old saying you "get what you pay for."
  4. I just don't think the folk art color shift is a strong color shift like Spaz Stix paints and other color shift paints. Auto air makes a strong color shift, I think it's their 4400 series. The folk art won't do this.

    Envirotex lite 30 min epoxy mixing

    I use one of these little mixers for epoxy. Let her run for 5 minutes or so (depending which epoxy you use) and it comes out mixed perfect with no bubbles. It has a little chunk of steel that rolls around the sides and mixes everything great.

    Shine effect?

    I use the lacquer version a lot. When sprayed over white you get a blue sheen on the white. The darker the background color is the more pronounced the blue color. Over black you will get a beautiful iridescent blue. In the picture you can see the colors it produces over black starting with green on the tail to blue to red to gold.
