ok ima bout to paint my bike, the paint i was gonna use is the hok kanyds, flakes, and pearl.

do you think it will look good if i do a lime gold pearl base and then clear w/ultra silver mini flake and then top it off with a kandy oriental blue, and then a few final coats of regular clear coats?

do you think it will turn out straight or look like booty

Don't you need a base under the Lime gold pearl? I would think the effect of the pearl would be pointless since you bury it under the flake and Kandy. What kind of shade are you looking for?

yeah, you need a flat white or flat black base under the lime pearl depending on what shade you want out of it.

i'm thinking the blue candy over it is going to give it a nasty piss color but dont hold me to it.

I think he's going for a blue with a green tint. If that's the case, I think a dark blue base color, then the Lime gold pearl over that is the way to go. I'd drop the flakes.

Otherwise, maybe silver base, silver flake in clear, Kandy blue, and the lime gold pearl in the clear.

from what i've seen being painted around here it's exactly what you said poppa :thumbsup:

but like i said if he does it the way he said i have a feeling that its going to look either like piss or puke of some sort. :dunno:

the bossmans out of town at families for christmas so i can't ask him to make sure.
