Here's basic specs for a House Of Kolor candy job:

You said primer, if your car is bare metal then start with an etching primer--- on average, $100.
Then, use a 2k primer--- $50 Omni brand
Make sure the car is all one color, or you can put on a sealer.

Base---1 gallon @ roughly $120. Requires reducer-2 quarts $24.

Flakes---$35 for 6oz.--two colors would be $70 (this is not for a full flake job, just for sporadic flake)

Candy---5 quarts @ $200 catalyst 3 quarts @$105 Reducer 3 quarts @$36.

Clear--- 1 gallon of Omni 161 clear costs around $100. This is a good clear and buffs nicely.

My advise would be to buy the paint and take it to a professional. Candy paint is not the right type of paint to learn with. It is expensive and is probably the hardest type of paint to spray.
