In my last (or previous-to-last) order from Gamecraft Miniatures, I decided to try out one of the Greenstuff World Colorshift paints. I put a black basecoat on one of my Lovecraftian horrors and put a couple thin coats of the color shifting paint on top. I like the results—a nifty, metallic sheen with various shades that has different looks depending on the light and angle. I could see these being useful for xenomorphs and other alien horrors, or on cyberpunk vehicles. Similar results might occur by using washes on a metallic base.
I took pictures in 3 different kinds of light (indoor, shaded outdoor, full sun) and from some different angles.
Some of the quality craft paints are offering colour shifting paints now. Often in the same versions. They work, more paint for less price but more than the usual price for craft paint. I’ve seen them in Folk Art, Deco, and Ceramcoat (I’m sure I misspelled that) brands.
