    need some help from you guys
    gang

    i have been reading this forum for the past few days and its awesome! props to all the guys that do the patterns, flakes, candies etc.etc.etc you got some good talent there

    my question is this...my son and i want to start painting our pedal cars with a spray gun instead of spray cans, or maybe it can be done with spray cans??

    what we want to do is put some type of pattern on the pedal car. how do we do this?

    From my understanding on the info in these forums we do the following:

    - select the color (brandy wine) and a similar lighter or darker color for base?
    - spray primer (what color)
    - spray base
    - start taping the patterns
    - spray candy
    - clear

    is that the steps

    depends what kinda patterns yall wanna do. if you wanna do a 2-tone kandy, which is what i and probably everybody else would do, its all in the basecoat.

    primer it, gray whatever, dont really matter since its a small pedl car.

    base it with lets say silver base

    then pattern it with lets say gold base

    then shoot 1 coat of kandy with some micro flake in it (i know you didnt mention flake, but we dont do things like that round these parts )

    then follow it up with another 2 or 3 coats of straight kandy

    then clear

    and yeah, your gonna need to do it with a gun. they sell kandy in spray cans, but i dont think its real kandy... i could be wrong though
    I don't apologize. I'm sorry, but that's just the way I am.
