If i am right.. the build up of a flake job =

-silver base.
-flakes with clear
-clear
-mean color
-paterns
-lots of clear
(-pinstripings)

But what is the use of all the different colors of the flakes then, like cameleon, blue, etc etc.
Can you still see the cameleon effect of the flake with all the other colorslayers on it??
Or do you just have to use silver flake for a multi-layer job?

if say you paint your car candy magenta over purple base if you use silver flake color will be magenta almost same as using silver base only darker.
magenta over purple base with purple flake will be a flaked out purpleish pink.
magenta over silver with silver flake be flaked out magenta.
camileon flake im guessing will give diferent look at different angles.
its all prefference. most like silver base with silver flake, i like different color base with silver flake.
i had an escort with graphics purple down to blue my painter topped off the graphics with fuscia flake it was pretty neat

different color flakes will give you differnt effects, shades, tones, and colors when used under a kandy. also for the people who do not want kandy, but still want there car flaked out there are a large variety of colors to chose from.

The coloured or camellion flakes work best over a solid base that compliments the colour ,, a silver base won't maximise the effect of coloured flakes as much ..
like a cammellion flake I would apply over black or a coloured base that complimented the candy colour and the colours of the camellion ..
But It all comes down to personall taste ,, and experimenting with different combinations ..

but if i want a blue finish with flakes i dont need the blue flakes right? just a silver base with silver flakes and then coated with blue.....or is the result better with blue colored flakes and a blue base as well?
(i want to use big flakes (1/64 i think) dont know if that matters?)

thank you homies

you don't need blue flakes ,, no .. The silver will reflect the colour of the candy over it ..
Nothing is better just personall taste ,, just make sure you compliment your colours and go with what you want ,, ..

Yeah those darker bases mean more Flakes to cover that shit up. If you go with a base that is closer to your Flake then you won't have to lay out as much flake to get the complete coverage. If you don't lay ample amount over the whole car, when you clear, you are gonna see the results.
