Microsequence pearl or flake?

I want to shoot a microsequence pearl or a flake over black basecoat...I've heard someone say .004 flake looks really good...How big is microsequence pearl compared to a .004 flake? My second question is, I want to shoot it similar to a 3 stage...shoot basecoat first, then shoot a single 'drop' coat with the flake or pearl mixed with binder...my goal is to appear black at all times of the day and only have a small hint of sparkle...Can anyone post pics of various pearl and flake paint jobs...thanks...

You might try shooting a sample of ice pearl. It kind of disappears until the light is on it.
