Here's one from our shop.
People call it different things when they're asking for it...
Flip/TVR paint/Chameleon etc...
This one is two powder pearl pigments over black with a fade in the middle and then a matte clear over the lot.
Saw this on your site and love it, matte over flip paint looks amazing. It's probably the finish I'll go for when I get a frame I want to paint. Is a matte finish harder to keep clean/looking sharp than a gloss?
In the grand scheme of things I'd say it is more difficult to maintain.
With a gloss finish you can wet flat and re-polish to remove scratches.
If you attempted to polish a matte clearcoat, it'd become glossy!
Without giving you a direct hyperlink for a shameless plug... we do sell a product from NoQuarter that's specifically designed to clean and protect matte finishes.
