Wondering if anyone has played around with the Kandy Koncentrate, and what some of the results were.
I want a unique color, so this is my options:

1. Metajuls base+ Urethane Kandy with 2 small doses of Koncentrate

OR

2. Metajuls base+ Urethane Kandy with a small dose of one Koncentrate, and then add the other koncentrate to the clear

Let me know whatchu guys think...... :thumbsup: OR :thumbsdown:

Concentrate in the clear is gonna give you the same effect as urethane candy so option 2 probably wouldn't look any different, plus you would still need to use just clear over it or it will change shades when you buff it. Concentrate mixed in urethane candy will probably hide the base too much without enough build, so it would take away from the candy effect. Probably.

probaly better to spray your 1st color candy, then shoot the 2nd color on top.. i would use urethane for them both.. then clear...

test panel is going to be your best best since you want a unique color.. you could also try different bases.. base coat changes the color of the candy..

test panel with urethane and kk on top.. then clear and see what happens

Thanx fellas...... This is what I'm working with: Metajuls02, with Kandy Tangerine urethane...... I had planned on tinting it with brandywine and pagan gold koncentrate to give it a darker/reddish tint, hoping that I'm not drowning out the metajuls, cause we all know that shit is expensive.......... I figured that I would use my dash pieces as sort of a test panel since I already have them prepped and ready to roll...........

you might drown it out with the darker color.. just put some metal flake underneath it instead if you want that sparkle

Mixing kandys.... UK kk or any die.... U must take it back to the basics of the color wheel what color makes what and how each color effects the other one. The twist when it comes to paints is u also have to know what makes up each color cuz that will change things real fast and if u get the wrong two put together you'll make muk!
