Having thus described our invention, what we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:     1. A retroreflective composition comprising:
  • a non-volatile matrix material;
  • a volatile constituent;
  • a plurality of retroreflective microsphere beads; and
  • a quantity of pigment particles having a diameter of not greater than 2 microns; said quantity of pigment particles being sufficient to enable a substrate to which the composition has been applied to reflect color from the pigment particles under daytime conditions;
  • wherein the volume of said matrix material to the volume of said retroreflective microsphere beads plus said pigment particles is in the range of 50% to 185%.
