In the video I can see it shifting from black to green. I assume this is a light diffraction effect. I would like a black to purple shift as seen in many birds – I will then use it for Republican Roman "black and purple" feathers. What happens with a thicker layer of paint ?

Yes, they do have such a color. The problem is that it doesn't work very well on miniatures. However, the Simple Green paints do work on miniatures. I suggest giving them a try. Be sure to watch the relevant videos on YouTube -- they're worth watching. Cheers!

Simple Green paints?
I've not heard of Simple Green paints. Who makes them?

Vallejo makes them. 24 colors I believe.
