What are all the different types or paint and what are the differences
BASE/CLEAR-USED ON MOST PAINT JOBS THESE DAYS
ACRYLIC ENAMEL-ONE STAGE PAINT, NOT USED OFTEN ANYMORE
LAQUER-USED MORE IN THE PAST, GETTING TO BE ILLEGAL. USED IN DIFFERENT COUNTRIES THOUGH.

CANDY
PEARL
METALLIC
METALFLAKE
SOLID COLOR
FLIP-FLOP

I THINK THAT'S ABOUT IT. :)

There are millions of different resins that make up paints ..
The main system used today is comprised of a base coat and 2k clear or 2k colour .. base coat dries through solvent loss and is then coated with 2k clear .. 2k dries through chemical reaction ,, hardeners ..
Any paint system is ''BASICALLY'' just a clear resin that has pigments dispersed into them to create colour and effect ..
These are the basic pigments used ..
candy is highly transparent colour .
mettalic is an opaque/reflective particle of different sizes ..
Pearl is a transparent/reflective particle of different sizes ..
camelleon is an encapsulated mettalic ..
solid colours have higher opacity (greater coverage)
Flake is oversized pigment which can be reflective or pearlescent..
