    Anybody knows what can be used so that the plates of
    printed circuit look green color?

    Some special painting is used or can be used any varnish
    mixed with green painting?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    "Solder Masking" a special Lacquer, paint, ink? to limit the creeping of
    melting solder especially during re-flow soldering, colored green to
    accent the difference between coated and uncoated copper !

  5. The green colour of commercially-made PC boards comes from the solder
    mask - a coating that is applied to the board (possibly by silkscreen)
    after the board is etched.

    green lacquer if transparent green paint if not.
    probably a paint with heat resistance upto 250 C would be a good idea.
    (if you intend to solder after painting) VHT makes heat resistant paint
    in spray cans. (try hot rod parts places)
