Here’s How I Did This Custom Paint Job – Painting With Candy, Pearl and Flake…
First, you want to spray your choice of base cost. I chose to spray a white base coat over the trunk. Let dry for about 20-30 minutes.
Second, you would spray clean water through a spray bottle over part of the area that you would want a bubbly or scaly look to appear.
Third, you would spray another color base over the wet beads of water. You can spray as a fade or directly over. As a fade will give you a more natural look. Again, it depends on what look you are trying to achieve.
Let dry until water fully evaporates, you can use a heater or heat gun to speed the process. Be sure not to burn your paint.
Fourth, wet sand the entire area smooth. Use a 2000, 2500 grit paper to cut off rough edges.
Fifth, you will want to clear coat the panel 2 – 3 coats of clear. In the example above we added in an extra step and sprayed 3 coats of candy lime, let that cure and flash, followed by another 2 coats of plain clear with a little micro sequence flake in it.
Painting with candy, flakes and pearls are amazing. You can mix up any custom look you desire. Let your imagination run wild and create a look that nobody else has!
That’s it, it’s pretty simple once you get the hang of it…
