Hi All,

I have a friend he wanted me to paint his car(4doors) with House of Kolor ( Shimrin Kandy Tangerine). I have never painted or used House of kolor paint before.

Most of the time I use Dupont 1:1 and I know 2 quarts of paint and 2 quarts of reducer will cover car whole small sedan car.

I would like to know if 1 gallon of (kandy)is enough?

What kind of clear should I use?

Do I have to spray black base for Kandy?

Can you some with knowledge with House of Color or Kandy paint please give me some advice...thank you

Just in case you can get a plan B color in front of your friend that would be more of a repairable color have a look at the Chrysler2003 orange code PVE , just a thought that may save a lot of headache if your used to regular bc/cc. The House of Kolor plan can be quite a handful for a color you can get in a repeatable mix since the Kandy will be a one off,build as you go sorta. Not to nay say HOK, more a safe side thing...

When it comes to base coats, much depends on how you want the finish to look. A white base will really make the candy pop and be very bright, the silver and gold will give it a metallic look and look nice too, but black will really darken the candy. If you never used HOK candy, you better know what you're doing. Candy looks cool but is somewhat hard to shoot if you never did it before. You can get tiger striping if you dont overlap properly and if you make a mistake, just call the priest.......cause you're screwed. Stick with a good bc/cc color and you will be much better off ,both in time and money spent.

What about if I use Dupont Orange Tangerine and spray pearl power mix in clear? Will this work? or it will still the same way?

You can mix the pearl powder into the base and it's done all the time for the same reasons we're talking about.

To get some tones with the HOK you may need ten coats of color which really means 10 times the risk of a fix during the process let alone after you roll it in the sun...
