Colorshift, the first range in new Eccentric color series, is a selection of ready to use metallic acrylic airbrush colors.
The multichromatic Eccentric Colors pigments used in the formulation of these colors give them a vibrant metallic sparkle, while their glass-like coating acts like a refracting prism. Each flake presents a variety of color depending on the angle of view and incident light; the color shift effect is observable with both high and low-gloss applications and in a wide variety of lighting conditions and is intensified if the colors are applied on a curved surface, while best effects are obtained over a gloss black base color.

I bought all three sets of Vallejo color shift paint sets recently, as I was looking for something like this to paint the lining of a cape on a London After Midnight vampire model kit. I do not use an airbrush, though these are airbrush ready. I simply shook the bottle, poured out some paint, dipped my brush into it and then brushed the paint on and was happy with how smoothly it flowed onto the black, primed surface. After the paint dried, I noticed the color shifts immediately and experimented with viewing it under various lighting sources, all of which proved to be highly satisfying, It also photographs very well compared to paints that have simple glitter particles that do not show up unless under extremely close-up shots. I’ve only used one color so far, but am thinking of ideas to get full use of these marvelous paints. Thanks, Vallejo for making these paints and thank you, Over the Brick for making them available to me.
