Photo- and Thermochromic Acrylic Paints

Paintings change color with temperature and lighting conditions
  [vote for,

Since these acrylic paints include both thermochromic and photochromic pigments, the colors shift with changes in lighting and temperature. A painting could appear bright and warm on a cloudy, cool day, and bluish-cool on a hot, bright day. It might be most effective to mix the variable pigments with regular ones so that the color shifts are gentle and subtle. Take an artist some time to figure out how to use these effectively, I bet.

If this idea isn't fully baked then this guy's got it in a pan and headed for the oven. I'm eager to see a few color-changing paintings using many layers of clear glaze with color-changing pigments added. [Dog Ed, Jun 28 2001, last modified Oct 04 2004]


       I'm not sure that you could specify the colour changes under given circumstances, but I like this. Lots of links on using the pigments individually, but not together, and not for purely artistic purposes.

       They go grey, like all cats, especially uncertain cats.

       There's a glass-and-gold mural in Philadelphia that's said to change very effectively as the light changes - Dream Garden, designed by Maxfield Parrish, made by Tiffany. (IIRC.)

       Nice. I want this in a good exterior one-coat.

       It's okay, DeGroof, up until I actually READ the idea that's what I thought.
