As far as mid coat, before you apply the mid coat lay down a test panel, apply one coat, mask it off, two coats, mask it of, three coats, mask it off, four coats, mask it off and then remove the masking paper and clear the panel. Look at the test panel in the sun light and choose which effect you like. Apply the mid coat to the car at the same speed and gun set up. Clear the the car and you've got your candy effect.

I would not put the candy colour in the clear coat, you would loose your depth in the paint job and if you ever get in an accident or a chip, repairing your paint job is extremely difficult. The mid coat is achieved by putting a dye or a small amount of a transparent toner in a clear and transparent product compatible with the original ground base. In PPG Deltron the part number is DBC500.
