candy or camelion on black BC??

Ok this may sound wiered, but i have been toying with the idea of instead of just shooting a PPG Raven Black BC/CC, then dooing somthing cool with the CC, i want the car to appear high gloss black, but when the light hits id like to have the same effect as the candy or camalion paints where a different colour shine highlights the contour of tha car, i want to try this since i think a gloss black car tends to loose some of its shapes or contures, so to speak..

what do i do

could i shoot a camelion mid and top coat on a black base, or would this ruin the effect, or is there somthing completely different out there?? PPG, HOK???

i always color sand my black b/c first, then apply either kandy, pearl, or cameleon - flip colors on top. u must do test panels to check coats required for wanted look. it makes a difference, for ghost flip to black look normally stay with 2 or 3 coats of color on black. 2-3 coats clear if no artwork or normally 4 coats clear- wet sand 600 reclear, 2- 4coats at a time dry sand1000 & recoat last 2 coats clear thinning down 5-10% extra. must keep clear to 4 coats for most paints have to dry dissolve out solvent for high build situations. always keep first coat of clear dry on first coat for better adhesion. good luck jw
