Candy paint jobs

Just a note on candy paint jobs. Basically, candy is an effect achieved by spraying notoriously thin (low coating) paints over very light color under coats like red and light green (like apples).

The under coats are most commonly white or silver metalic. That said, you can achieve the "candied effect" by lightly spraying any color that will have the "see through" factor over one of the undercolors I mentioned to get the effect. Add metalics at your own risk as the application becomes phenominally more difficult when you add pearl or metal flake.

Anyway, that's how you get a Candy paint job.
