Umm if you're searching for HOK flakes it will show up in that search. Some call it creative marketing not dishonesty. As you notice when you get to the page is states clearly what the item is and never mentions HOk or an other overpriced flake in the description. As a fellow painter I thought I'd offer the same flake for less to other fellow painters with better and faster service/support than any others. :cool:

Oh yeah. I got pearls too. Just mix in a a teaspoon per pint of clear and you get way better depth and suspension than any pearl paint on the market. When pearls are mixed in the actual paint they lose their brilliance or sparkle because the paint is not 100% transparent. I've been doing this for a minute, btw. About 17 years since I first picked up an airbrush. Airborne, this should be your avatar :0 lmao

I agree and they're reasonably priced. I've shot flakes from almost everyone and I noticed they're all basically the same stuff (mirror finished polyester, metalized film, epoxy coated, solvent and water resistant flakes). I just needed large quantities for cheaper than anybody would offer, for fiberglass composites, so I went into the business with Bling metal flake. It's good shit, without a doubt.

Let me check into that. I know they have an ice which is a clear glass. The white pearl I have is a pearl flake where HOk ice is a clear glass.

The HOKS ice pearls are glass flake that are transluscent. Bling's White Pearl flake is opaque as most metalflake is but with a pearlescent finish.
