The only negative might be that you had to use a candy to give them rich color. The colored flakes would not require as much work for a rich-colored result.
All nice work,, I like the gold with the blue flames,, That gold is a nice color..

I would agree with you about the choice of flake. Your car is "early sixties show rod" in every way!

I believe that there is no right and wrong way to pick the art work, as long as the owner is happy... but I think your car would be most impressive if you stick with things that were popular on those cars, during that era.

But that is just one person's opinion.

It is on a background color of HOK metallic gold basecoat.... and the flake is HOK "dark gold".

If I had it to do again, I would use a dark base. Having the metallic gold underneath took away some of the brilliance of the flake.

I was thinking of going with a wild green with big flakes,,, But I been thinking very long and hard on a gold like that too.. Hard choice when your not a painter by trade,, I want to put a color that no one would ever want to change it,, I know that will be hard.. But I do like that gold,,

Greens have been popular lately... and that would also be more unusual... but I think the gold would be generally more popular with people.

As an added bonus, gold is what is called a "value color", so it would seem to have more status in that color.

...but it's your choice first!

I hear what your saying.. The only thing I did see was,, The C-Cab isn't very big,,, And I fine that the darker colors of primer on it makes it look even smaller,, And the lighter color primer makes it look so much bigger,,

I like the smaller look on it,, But I do think the gold would pop on it,, Just worried about the bigger look on it...

Maybe I'm missing something,, But I'm not sure... Sorry to pull you away from the thread,,, But I feel this is about paint and may also help someone else that might be thinking the same way..

As long as we are talking about custom paint, I don't see how that isn't helping the cause. As a matter of fact, you just offered another bit of information that people need to know about colors...

"Dark colors makes things look smaller... and light colors makes things look bigger."

That is exactly what a custom paint thread should teach! :-)

That is one of the reasons that panel truck I posted is a dark candy red, instead of a bright red! We talked about how big it actually was first.

Very true Jay.. Also how the light colors are a little more forgiving then the dark ones.. But if the body work is done right it shouldn't be a problem..

You are sure right about that! That is why many show cars are painted black first, so you can see the stuff you missed, before you do the final paint job!

The difficulty in a paint job that shows light reflections so strongly... LIKE BLACK... is that they show EVERY LITTLE IMPERFECTION!

That is also why they can be some of the most expensive jobs! Lots of block work, and then more body work, and then more block work, etc. etc. :-(

I learnt about that when we built my Hot Pink Luv... I can't tell you how many times we primed and blocked that truck,, But when it was done,, It never was cut and buffed,, Went straite to the world of wheels and won 1st place first show.... But MAN !!!! I had enough of that blocking,,,

LACE PAINTING!!!

:-) Anyone want to talk about it? It isn't just flowers any more!

It might be better to call it "fabric painting"... but "lace" is the universal term.

Here are a few examples of the "non-flowered" varieties. I will need to scan some old photos to post more.

Anyone else have some good examples?
