if its dust <i think its really just pearl, candy refers to the depth of a clear or candy paint, or a brand name? I mis pearls in base or clear, depends on the effect wanted, add to taste, but some times less is more...dont overdo it..

So what your saying is just purchase a qt. of clear and add the dust to it or are there any other additives i need to add oh and the dust came from "paint with pearls " and it is called a "candy pearl"

From reading the website for your pearl I gather that the "candy" pearl is more on the side of being a pigment than being a translucent.

Either way I would shoot the "candy" pearl in SPI intercoat clear, then top coat with one of SPI's other clears, Universal being one of their most popular.

Basemaker is Duponts high end reducer for Chroma base only ,thats it ..it does not make a base if you add pearl ,You need an intermix or clear to add the pearl too ..... inter mix is cheaper than clear and drys fast its not only a better way to do it ,its easier ,it'll make that a transparent pearl base coat .....It'll still need to be cleared it takes three steps ...first the base color then the peal coat then the clear....SPI might be a little more expensive to be playing around with ,Nason might be a better choice in this case...check out some prices .....

DBM, SPI Production 2.1 is a good clear and costs only $84 for 5 sprayable qts. I don't know how that compares to Nason, but I bet it is equal or better.
Universal sprays for $30.62 a sprayable qt or just a bit over $29 a sprayable qt when purchased by the gallon and we both know there isnt a better clear out there anywhere near that price

btw: SPI intercoat is only $15.35 a sprayable qt.

Sorry,I was only refering to the intermix but your absolutly right about the SPI clear I would NOT recomend using Nason Clear ..I have used a lot of Nason clear and it does not preform near as well as ANY of SPI clears...and if SPI's inter mix is close in price I'd use that too...I'm an SPI man myself....have been for years...This is the first I've heard of an SPI intermix ,I didnt think they made it....I'm learning something here too.. awe shoot...15 bucks a qt ,thats nothin you wont need more than two qts...Thanks OF thats some useful info to remember...
