Welcome to the world of candy paints.
These paints are true candy which are a 3 stage paint, base, candy and clear. The nature of candy is that it is a coloured translucent basecoat.
These are best sprayed over a coarse silver base or metal flake which can be seen through the colour, other colours will give a different colour tone. The more coats put on the darker and more intense the colour will be. Light even coats are best with a 50 to 60% overlap.
Our candy base coats need to be mixed with our reducer at a ratio of 2 candy 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 base coat letting each one matte off before applying the next, the length of drying time will vary due to temperature, application etc.
Apply reduced candy 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.
