Not afraid to shine - new Resene Pearl Shimmer
From the What's New archive - January 2002...
Building on the popularity of Resene Metallics, a new shimmering effect - Resene Pearl Shimmer - has joined the Resene special effects range.
Resene Pearl Shimmer is an acrylic pearlescent glaze ideal for creating soft iridescent wall finishes and sparkled features to add visual interest and diversity to any colour scheme.
Designed for interior and exterior use, Resene Pearl Shimmer can be applied over a standard new paint system such as two coats of Resene Lumbersider or directly over an existing sound coloured surface. Used in conjunction with a tinted basecoat, Pearl Shimmer filters the basecoat colour through the pearlescent glaze to give a unique finish on a wide variety of substrates, including trim and joinery. The large selection of basecoat and application options offers an almost infinite selection of colours and finishes. The pearlescent glaze can be tinted using the Resene Total Colour System allowing a two tone effect to be achieved.
The most accentuated pearlescent effect will be achieved in combination with a textured basecoat, a well-planned lighting scheme and/or a curved surface. As the final appearance will vary depending on the basecoat colour and method of application, always agree on a sample panel before commencing work.
With just one coat required to achieve the softly shimmering effect, Resene Pearl Shimmer is a very efficient way to add a unique special effect to the finish with the added benefit of an extra protective layer on the paint system.
