Has anyone successfully duplicated the color-shift on the back of a Vision 110 Elegy Bone? I have Flair Teal/Purple color shift as well as Highlight interference in Blue and purple. Elegy Bone appears Turquoise on direct look and Purple on side cast. Any help?

I've messed with with a few color shift paint schemes, pearl wakasagi was one that drove me completely nuts, but I finally did figure it out. I had to make my own paint to achieve the desired affects. I bought pearlescent powder from Paint with Pearl, and mixed it with createx gloss top coat. They have about anything you could imagine. I do a shad color thats has a similar effect to elegy bone, I use their " violet satin ghost pearl pigment" and mist it over black, from the side it looks black, but from the back it's purple. I think the exact same powder would work for elegy bone. Hope this helps.

Excellent! Just visited paint with pearls. What is your mix ratio? I see that they sell 25 gram bags. Is your Createx clear a 2 oz. bottle? I see that they have a chamelion blue purple that looks like it might work as well. Ratio hints?

Ratios, I don't get worry about being exact every time, I have a little knife that I stick the tip in the powder and mix that with about a 1/2 once of the clear. Yeah it's a 2 oz. bottle I get from Hobby Lobby. I was thinking of using the turquoise as a base and mist the violet ghost over it. They have quit a bit of info on the site about how to achieve different effects, wish I had a little baggy of each of their powders, the effects you can achieve with that stuff is amazing and endless.

Wasco's wildlife colors- iridescent blue and iridescent violet work great for that effect without mixing the pearl. Same effect when you shoot over black and equally cool over white.

I haven't noticed any odor with the pearl, that's any different from createx paint.

X2 The iridescent violet works great.
