Some products quality of a material suction light body, reflective between body and gives one or both between suction light body, reflective body, or have three in one --combination of composite.

Suction light body, including clothing, fur, cloth, food, fruit, matt plastic, ceramic, etc, these products coarse light reflex is stable and the itself visual hierarchies abundant, electrical lights a normally with side light, frontlighting, side frontlighting primarily, and light are small, which makes its level and colour are as more rich.
