Question about Snow white pearl from House of Kolor.

how hard is it paint Snow white Pearl from House of Kolor? is it going to be just like painting a regular paint. would it look good with a whole truck painted that color or should it be broken up with a different color. i got the color from the show trucks. it was on crazy horse. also how much different is it from a plain solid white paint.

Im not familar with HOK white pearl, But if its like most its a three stage. Witch means you spay a white base coat first, then the pearl over that ,then clear. Spraying it really isnt any harder, keeping it clean during the pearl coat is really the hard part. Its usualy pretty transparent stuff so you cant coverup anything
that might land in it.Say your on your second coat of pearl and a bug lands in it or your gun spits a black speck in it. If you cant tac it out youll have to respray white over it to hide it, then start repearling it.Do it somewhere clean and start with a clean gun.

A few years ago i painted a nissan with snow white pearl. its an excellent choice for a white pearl.. some white pearls look sort off white but not this.. its bright white. what i did was use the white sealer under it since it is not very solid. i got the sealer to be an even color then i sprayed i think 3 coats of the base on it .. was very easy to spray as well.

use it all the time. p8inter...its not a tri stage just a pearl basecoat which makes it even easier. its just like spraying any other basecoat but keep in mind it does not cover...at all. you need to have a perfect solid white base to start with. if you want something even whiter, base the truck with bc26 white base then instead of the snow white use the pc1. that combo wont get that creamy color. snow white is very white but if you put enough of it on it will start to turn slightly off white, not much but enough to notice.

1. white base
2. pearl coat
3. Clear coat

It might not be sold as a one .... but the procedure to make white pearl is.

i know what you are saying. what i was trying to say was that the shimirin pearl basecoats aren't a traditional tricoat where your spraying your main color then a pearlcoat on top. they all have the pigment in them. if you were spraying the majik blue pearl for instance, which is a dark blue color, you would still start off with a solid white base.
