ABOUT LUCY O'NEIL Photographer
Nissan has developed a clear coating that repairs scratches.
Automotive paint has its uses in decorative painting. Automative Tints are much finer than architectural tints and the variety is endless There are also powders. For example I first used the pearl powder used in making up pearlised and tinted automative paint. To create a good Pearl Finish was very difficult. We now have a plethora of acrylic pearl paints manufactured under various Brand names. Dulux also has a its own contribution to the Pearl Paint industry. I liken attaining a great pearl finish to the creation of the pearl. A bit of grit is slowly covered over and over until the pearl has been formed. The depth of lustre is equal to its beauty. In a pearl paint finish several coats are required to attain LUSTRE.
Most people would not consider giving any project more than a couple of coats, 3 at the most. I have found (especially with acrylics) that several coats are required for the metal, pearl and irridescent finishes. I use automative tints and paint because of their beauty and durability. When I finish off a project, especially an ArchiSpray Painting, I use a clear enamel. If I have the choice I use an automative product for the reason that the composition of the paint and the reliability of the spray can is far superior to that of a decorator or craft product.
I would like to try this new scratch be gone paint! My artwork gets handled quite a bit and scratches are unsightly and devalue artwork. Even the Fine Finishes we produce could benefit from a spray every few years to give Finishes an added lifespan.
Airbrush Artists would be happy with this product also. Application of this paint would save hours of work and keep their creations on the road looking fresh.
I will look into this development and get back to you.
