I don't think I've seen ice pearl before. I kinda wanted to keep with the traditional plain white top. the only thing I'm changing is the "brightness" Find me some pics of ice pearl, and I might be sold

Oh yea, and you know how on the back of a 63, how it has that aluminum cover plate that goes between the body and the lights? Well, for shits and giggles, we are going to paint that using just flake (after the orion silver is laid down) What do you guys think? Think it'll look like ass, or tight? I think it would look bad ass, as you're following the car, the flake is just dancing for you.

** I had thought about it but I was going to tape it off so that only the center was painted ..... In Ice pearls tho....

Ice pearl looks like crushed up glass or little diamonds in your paint....

i have a pic of a helmet that i did .. i will try too find it ....

Well i think you really have to see the ice pearl in person to get the effect. I would like to try mixing some dry pearl and ice pearl together over white and see how that looks.

But it is shaved glass. It almost looks like small flake when the light is directly on it but it almost dissapears at night so it looks better than flake when there is no light on it

That ice pearl is fuckin' nuts. Nobody around here has that shit. There's only one candy car around here. I think only one person that paints candy too. I'll have to check that shit out in real life. Worst case scenerio- I paint my bike in that. Thanks for the tip guys- I think that picture might have sold me.
