|mitmaks||hmm I like that idea, that would look nice|

Yeah, definately not a chevy, I think you should paint it the original silver than add just a small amount of violet candy to get that plum crazy look which would suit you and your mopar. Maybe call House Of Kolor and ask them for a silver candy suggestion.

|1Fast65Elky||whatta bout a really really small metalflake, i think that would look good on it. Like they said before i dont think you can get a silver candy, havent seen any pigment anywhere usually blue red orange yellow purple green etc never seen a silver besides the basecoat....|

|mitmaks||actually my R/T wasnt some chevy, and they didnt use lacquer on mopars at that time, mine was originally buffed silver metallic, so I gues i could paint it original color and then clear with candy in silver color?|

I need to mention that candy colors are notoriously hard to match! You can forget about any kind of normal blend procedure and go ahead and "butt" or panel match it, adding coats of ever more reduced candy to the panel until the match looks good under bright light. Big pain in the ***!
That's why I don't recommend them. There are many factory colors that approach a "candy" look, and most people are happy to know that they have a beautiful vehicle that can also be easily repaired.

|mitmaks||anyone have parts/cars pics of candy done in silver then? my charger was originally silver and i wanna see how I can get it to look even better when ill paint it. I need some ideas|

bee and the other guys are right. there is no silver candy. candy just refers to transparent color rather then opaque. some are in basecoat form, some in urethane and some are just straight dye to mix into what you want. a red candy dye over silver would look like a real deep metallic red. i attached a pic of a harley fender i did a while back. this is silver base and the airbrush is done in white and black. the candy red is put over everything making it all shades of red. you can see its completely transparent. almost like wrapping it with red window tint.

Due to the fact that you have to put several coats of kandy to achieve the desired coverage using a urethane (regular) type clear coat is out of the question. The build would be so thick it would cause major issues with curing out.The urethane clear is done after all Kandy paint/graghic's are finished as the final clear would be applied on a bc/cc job.
An inter coat clear is designed for kandy's & pearl's specifically as it's thin like base paint and stacking many coats with proper flash is fine.
A base paint binder is about the same deal as it's the "base" for paint with no pigment and the concentrate is added to it then reduced like base paint to spray.

When I paint candy colored graphics this is how it goes.
I paint the recommended base first, it's usually silver , gold, or white.
The candy color will have one specified. This base is only for
reflecting up through the candy paint.
Next I spray the candy color, it's a clear with a color that's translucent.
You can see through it. I keep adding coats of candy untill I get the
color or effect I'm after. Usually by this time, several coats later, you
really can't hardly tell the base is there. But it is and it affects the look.
Once the color is what I want I clear over it with a urethane just like a
regular base coat paint job.
It's really that simple. Now on large areas like a car you have to be consistent
on the color coats so it all matches, every coat you add will change the
color a little. That's the challenge.

|mitmaks||so how do ypu paint candy coat by coat, primer, base, layer of clear coat with candy then clear?|
|09-16-2005 08:57 AM|
Candy(Kandy) is basically a concentrated dye mixed with an inter coat clear or a base paint binder for it's "transport fluid" to apply a colored layer(s) over a metallic base color. The metallic give's it the sparkle and depth making the color pop. Otherwise, it's just a transparent color coating.
Like painting with water color's when in school.If you just wet the brush and rub it in the paint lightly,you get a light shading of the actual color when you stroke the brush.It builds gradually and you keep applying consecutive coats to get the desired depth of color. Now you can richen up the concentrate and apply it at a deeper color,but you can easly over do it and have it too dark after just a few coats.
There is no "Silver" kandy so to speak. Kandy's all have some kind of color to them. That's their purpose in life is to add a vibrant color tone that has a transparent effect to it that is capable of being shaded in to the desired color and depth.
I guess Kosmoski saw a Candy apple at the fair and thought Hummmm????.

so candy is basically clear coat with special effect in it...
So I can spray it over regular silver to obtain silver candy, or something like that
