Liquitex Iridescent Acrylic paints are also known as metallic paints that mimic the effect of bronzing powders. Liquitex Iridescent paints do not tarnish unlike bronzing powders which cannot be used with acrylic emulsions due to the alkalinity of the binder.

  • Liquitex Iridescent Colors produce a variety of non-tarnishing iridescent or metallic effects
  • Made from titanium coated mica flakes with an outer layer of a transparent light absorbing colorant, rather than traditional pigments 
  • Light absorbing colored layers determine the observed color
  • Iridescent pigments are "optically opaque" and they rely on reflected light only for their effect. No Interference "flip" color is observed
