Ghost flames

I have a 07 Dodge ram truck. It is Met. Silver. I would like to lay down some candy or pearl orange ghost flames. My question is this... If I just mix a pearl orange in the clear that I'm shooting the flames with, will the color come out right using the met. silver under it? Is it the same if I use a translucent orange?
Thanks

I don't understand what you mean by " pearl orange". Normally, you would mix some Orange Pearl powder into your clear. That way the pearl flakes in the clear reflects the light through the clear.

What I'd do is mix it up as a tricoat instead of in your clear, apply the tricoat then reclear accordingly. Go to a paint jobber and tell him you want a tricoat of orange pearl mixed up. Try on a few test panels first because I don't think your going to be all that happy with the orange pearl as a ghosting agent. I'd use a lighter pearl more like a white if I was trying to get that true hidden ghost look.

Personally I'd stay away from the candy. I haven't seen much luck with them in the ghosting realm. Good luck, send pics of your project either way. Like to see how it turns out.
