Egyptian scarab amulets were immensely popular and traded through the Mediterranean world.
By association, Scarab is bound to be one of our most popular paints. After all, what’s not to like about a jewel-like beetle shell finish in shades of emerald green with a subtle shift to midnight blue when used over a black primer.
Turboshift paints are made with tiny glass-like flakes that work like millions of small prisms within the paint. Depending on how the flakes are made, different colors are refracted or reflected in the light. In layman's terms this means that the paint changes color depending on what light you are viewing it under, and what angle you are holding it to that light.
Formulated for airbrush use, but may also be hand brushed.
