Now that is a revelation, no metallic silver.
It also Seems we are moving away from the RGB/CMYK pigment theory of light absorption and band pass methods.
For the last two days I have been experimenting with thinned paint, applied in thin layers of CMY over 12x12 mirror tiles.
I have found that it definitely increases ambient light tolerance but, at the expensive of brightness as would be expected. On top of the three very thin CMY layers I sprayed a very thin coat of pearl, then finally a very thin coat of Silver metallic. So biglyle you have me thinking a very thinned out coat of UPW might be better than the Silver Metallic.
I also found when I peeled off thin sheets of the CMY layered coating that the reverse side appears brown in color when viewed a few feet away but that up close you can see the discrete CMY dots or a pattern if you will.
I am headed out to Indonesia today and will not be back until Dec. 10th. Wouldn't you know it just when things are getting interesting. You can be sure I will log on immediately upon my return to see what you guys have developed.
