BBC 2 used a slo-mo flying paint ident back in 1998 ... They had some really neat idents back then.

Yeah, I watched it and half expected the paint to form into a number 4 before a voiceover guy started with "and coming up next on Channel 4..."

In other words, it looks like a TV ident.

Does paint really do that when you combine two colors in air like that, or is that edited? My instincts say edited but I'm curious.

I can't decide if I like the Raspberry Red or the Pilgrimage Forage Tan. They all look so different when you throw them around in your own house.

I saw this a few days ago, and it prompted me to look up the rheology of paint(pdf).

There is a special device to measure it called a Zahn cup.

I was taught that as a rule of thumb, automotive paint was thin enough to spray when it runs off of a standard paint stirring stick in two streams (self-link).

That would be a lot less "neat" with the colours inverted. (More murdery, though!)
