When choosing a colour, keep in mind “standard” glass has a green hue. This is due to iron compounds and has a significant effect on white or lighter colours and is impossible to alter. One way to maximise tint accuracy and minimize this effect is to use a special glass such as Diamant Extra Clear, Starphire, or Optiwhite. We’re happy to discuss this option and it is worth mentioning that some find the green hue a feature.
Sparkle coats consist of a sparkle flake mixed into a clear base paint. This is applied first and left to dry overnight. Once dry, solid colour is sprayed over the top. This provides a glistening effect to any of the solid colours. Black sparkle is by far the most popular. A metallic paint consists of a metallic flake that also has a tinted colour within it. No backup colour is required, other than an opacifying coat.
