just bury them in more clear...

and another thing i dont wanna add flakes to the base. i want as much flash as possible. so i dont want the flakes in paint. the base is just going to be the same color as the flake in case you see though the flake. i dont want to have a black base that will darken it.

spray the flake in hok sg100 or like you said, build up the clear. learn from my mistake though, under reduce the clear. the clear i used was 2-1-1 and i put 5 coats of clear and that shit was still rough! but i used 1/64 silver under kandy oriental blue.

uh when i did my frame i used a whole jar of hok flakes, 1 gallon of clear on just the frame, i added bout 2-3 tablespoons of flakes in bout half of a quart of clear(i dont like to fill up the paint gun cup) and i used a whole gallon of clear(not all with flakes, only bout 1/2 gallon of clear with flakes.) and it came out looking like a bass boat, and i had a matching base color as well. but dont know if that helped u i doubt it did but i just thought i'd share that.
