You got the right idea, but you are missing a few steps try thiss.

1. Lay down HOK silver sealer
2. Lay down patternsin HOK dark blue.
3. Lay down silver flake. You won't need blue flake cause of the candy
4. Lay 2 to 3 coats of midcoat clear.
5. Wetsand Smooth with 400 grt.
6. HOK Kandy Blue paint.
7. 3 to 4 coats of clear
8. Wetsand smooth with 400 grt.
9. 1 to 2 coats of topcoat clear.
10. Wetsand with 1500 grt, then 2000 grt.
11. Buff to a shine.

What size of flake would I need to use? I want to be able to see when you drive by someone on the street. How much of everything would I need to useto paint my car. It is for a 94 Lincoln Towncar.

Man you've got alot of gutz if you're gonna start off shooting Kandy. I don't know if it's such a good idea cause if you run the Kandy or shoot it unevenly it could be very hard to fix unlike BC/CC. Either way it's your car so it's all on you Good Luck homie :biggrin:

TGF is right. I would start out painting singlestages, then move up to clear/base until you are confortable with that. It took me like 3 years of painting 2 stage jobs befor I moved on to 3 stage jobs like candy, but if you rely want to do it. Replace the silver base with a blue base. This will be more forgiving when making simple mistakes with the candy, and it will still look just as good as using silver as your base. As for the mixing instruction. just follow the tech cheats, and go all with house of Kolor. Good luck. and post us some pics when your done K
