A deep red pearl with a touch of pink shimmer base coat
painted over a white base for the hint of pearl colour
or painted over a dark or black base for a full colour pearl.
Welcome to the world of pearl paints.
These paints are true pearl to give that iridescent shimmer which are a 3 stage paint, ground coat (black or white), ghost pearl and clear.
These are best sprayed over a white for the ghost effect or black for a full colour pearl, other coloured ground coats will give a different colour tone. Light even coats are best with a 50 to 60% overlap.
Our ghost pearl base coats need to be mixed with our reducer at a ratio of 2 pearl to 1 thinners and will dry with a matte finish.
Start by prepping the work in the normal way and wet flat with 800 wet and dry, do not break through the primer.
Apply 2 to 3 even coats of the reduced ground coat letting each one matte off before applying the next, the length of drying time will vary due to temperature, application etc.
Apply reduced ghost pearl in light even coats until the desired colour is achieved again, let each one matte off before applying the next.
If any fine line work is needed let it matte off and give it an hour or two first.
Apply clear within a 24 hour period for maximum adhesion.
