Default Unity 22 paint scheme

I'm sure lots of us here watched the live stream of the Unity 22 flight.
I was particularly struck by the paint scheme, the way the paint fades in and out of the polished metal. LOVED IT!
Any thoughts on how that's done? I imagine there's clear coat over all of it, but I've got little to know knowledge about paint.

here's an inflight image of Unity 22, as well as one of VSS Imagine on the ground. I guess this style of paint scheme is their brand...

did a little googling, it looks like these planes are composite... so it's all just paint. Looks cool though.

Love the evolution of air/space craft along the spine of the plane.

haha, it's a bit of marketing too since they didn't put Blue Origin in the progression.
