stucco effect pastes

The stucco or snow effect shows a property feature not in use up to now in the field of decorative pastes - a swelling of the paste after its spreading onto the substrate.
By means of this process, it becomes dead easy to conjure up soft winter landscapes with perceptible snow heights.
The stucco effect is available in 35 different basic hues, which can be mixed with each other at any ratio to yield countless new shades.
main application fields:
- modelling
- structuring and shaping of paintings

gloss effect pastes




Starting from the transparent base formulation, outlining pastes exhibiting a wide spectrum of varying effects are obtained upon addition of pigments and dyes.
In particular, the effect categories are as follows:

shiny opaque pastes

Addition of a white pigment and further coloured pigments leads to wide spectrum of opaque pastes. Because of the transparency of the base formulation, these opaque pastes appear shiny. In order to yiled matt and opaque pastes, the "stucco" effect has newly been developed.

the bronze effect

The bronze effect is created by composition of the base formulation with colored mineral flakes or little plates. Further color change can be effected by the addition of dyes.

the metallic effect

The metallic effect is built up in a similar way to the bronze effect, the only difference being the exclusive use of pigments with silver shades.

the pearl sheen effect

Pearl sheen pigments demonstrate high gloss and a sight angle dependence of their color strength. While transparent dyes serve as the providers of the sight angle independent hue in the pastes, the effect of the pearl sheen effect becomes more and more visible with decreasing sight angle and overlays the hue created by the dye. This way, one gets to slightly shimmering pastes. The pearl sheen effect is especially impressive under evening light.

the glitter effect

The term glitter corresponds to small plates, flakes needles or other homogeneously shaped pieces with very narrow size distribution, made from synthetics or metals. These carriers are also often colored on their surfaces. When glitter is worked into the transparent outlining paste, it appears again after drying of the paste and cannot fall off the decorated substrate, since it sticks to and is covered by the paste.

the flourescent and the phosphorescent effect

Fluorescent pigments lead to opaque pastes with very intensive hues, since UV light is transformed into visible light by the fluorescent pigments, which adds to the already present visible light and thereby increases the brightness significantly. Phosphorescent pigments work in a similar way, but the transformation process here takes longer and so it becomes possible, to observe light emissions even minutes after the stimulating light source has been removed, i. e. in the dark.
