THE WORLD’S MOST AFFORDABLE COLOR SHIFTING PAINT

Mystic is Alsa’s latest addition to its specialty paint collection. Mystic is a color shifting paint that has an extremely metallic type of look, yet it flops like no other paint we have ever seen.

DSC02011L

Mystic is available in four distinct colors: Violet Dreams, Tropical Passion, Mystic Autumn, and Burning Ice, which is the most metal-like.

We recommend Mystic be applied over a black basecoat for the most dramatic effects, however it can also be applied over any of our other basecoat colors to a achieve a softer (more pearlescent) yet still intense color change. The color possibilities are endless.

Mystic is mixed with an extremely high pigment concentration, meaning it can be reduced anywhere from 1:1 to 1:3 and still achieve a dramatic color-change effect. For the first time in paint history we are introducing the newest and most beautiful Color shifting paint as a VERY AFFORDABLE practical coating, at 1/10 the price of other companies.

Bullet Points

Alsa’s Mystic paint is a chameleon like paint that is made of a very fine color shifting additive, for flip flop colors. A bit metallic pearl in appearance, if you will, these magnificent colors will change dramatically when put over different colored base coats. We recommend Alsa base coats, but there are many fine base coats on the market that will work as well. Alsa’s Mystic paints all use a very fine pigment, for a subtle color shift. (Compare this to Alsa’s SpectraFX pigment, which uses a larger particle size, and gives a more sparkly appearance.)

Generally shot over a black base coat, for the most dramatic color shift, this pigment will result in a wide variety of looks, when applied over different base coats. This is your time to explore!

This paint should be finished with a clear coat for added protection, and a deep, water-wet, high gloss look. Matte top coats, such as Alsa’s Soft Touch coating, make the color shift more subtle.

  • Made with the finest chameleon additive
  • Extremely small particle size, allowing more dramatic color shift
  • Wide variety of looks available, depending on color of base coat
  • Can be used with Alsa’s One Shot Candies over the top for many interesting effects
  • Rarely available to the public
  • Specialty paint collection
  • Advanced UV protection for long lasting color
How To (Application Guide):
  1. Make sure you have good conditions for spraying. The best temperature for spraying this paint, is 70-80 degrees F, and humidity of no greater than 50%.
  2. Always apply paints in a well-ventilated area, and wear a NIOSH approved respirator to avoid breathing any fumes.
  3. If you piece is already base coated, you can proceed to step 14
  4. Prepare and prime your part first. Epoxy primers are best for bare metal, and primer surfacers are best for plastics, fiberglass, or wood. Some plastics may require an adhesion promoter but most plastics, like ABS plastic, are fine without adhesion promoters.
  5. Before applying your primer, remove all dirt, grease, oil, salt, and chemical contaminants, by washing the surface with a commercial detergent, or other suitable cleaning method.
  6. Rinse with fresh water and allow to completely dry.
  7. Remove any existing loose paint, or rust, etc., with a wire brush or sand paper.
  8. Lightly sand glossy surfaces to create a surface profile for adhesion.
  9. Apply your primer to the surface according to the manufacturer’s specifications for your particular primer.
  10. Let your primer cure according to the manufacturers specifications for your particular primer.
  11. Lightly scuff your primer with 800-1000 grit sand paper, or you can also use a red scotch-brite pad, to create a surface profile for adhesion.
  12. Reduce the black base coat (ASB-13) that came in your kit at a ratio of 1:1 with the medium reducer (AMR-2712) that came in your kit.
  13. Using steady even passes….Apply 1-2 coats of the reduced black base coat over your primer, with about 10-15 minutes dry time between coats.
  14. Let your base coat dry for 10-15 minutes, and then you are ready to apply the Mystic Paint.
  15. Apply the Mystic paint in 2-3 light to medium wet coats, using steady even passes, with about 10-15 minutes dry time between coats, until you achieve the desired effect.
  16. Let the Mystic paint dry for about 15-20 minutes, and you are now ready to top coat the Mystic.
  17. Mix the Speed Clear (SC2130) with the hardener included in your kit (H-222) at a ratio of 4:1
  18. Apply the Speed Clear over the Mystic paint, using very steady even passes. Apply 2-3 coats, with about 15-20 minutes dry time between each coat. Allow the final top coat to cure for 24 hours, and you can now buff the finished piece if needed.
