That was in the works for April 2005, to be honest.
But after going to this show there must have been at least
10 new companies introducing this stuff.
So April is now free.

Got to love the competition to hopefully bring some reasonable prices of paints to the market.

I'm with you Larry, cuts down on the $learning curve.

House of Color is an excellent line and they had the market wrapped up BUT these type of products are easy to make, just time consuming matching the color you want.
H of C has gotten out of hand on the pricing and now that opens the door for other companies to jump in.
Prices will go down as some of these companies will be ready to go under in six months, so they will start blowing out product and other companies will try to match the price to keep their sales.
Dutchman, you will get your wish.
A further note when these 10 companies realizes Sem jumped in
they will have a price decrease next week I'm sure.

Yes, making your own colors, you can't make the Pearl powder in backyard.
Candies also you can make but its not cost effective so better off to buy the concentrate.
Do you want to know how to make colors or the Pearl itself?
If you do I will be happy to explain but keep in mind, we have a national bike show winner on here and Jim may know more than me.

as far as mixing and using the products i can give some good advice but actually manufacturing the products themselves if thats what we are talking about, is a whole other story. pearls are mica powder and some how it is colored to reflect a certain color light and the candies are made from dye rather than an actual pigment which makes them less lightfast. some color dyes are more lightfast than others so just purchasing any color dye just doesn't work. most colors available today for automotive use have been tested to last a long time in the sun without fading while i have seen other dyes sit in the sun for 2 hours and get totally bleached out so you couldn't tell it was there. i usually try and just stick with products that have been tested and work. there are plenty of suppliers out there now that have such an array of products (although most are the same) there is no need to tinker around with making your own stuff. that tends to just lead to problems down the road. let the paint companies do what they do. but just to expand our knowledge maybe barry would like to explain. hey barry....ever think about doing a one or two hour special on discovery.

I'd be afraid being a movie star someone like Julie Roberts would want my body! Than a messy divorce, etc.

Really, my luck it would be Oprah!
