a killer scheme me and my carnal did on a some cars were with pearls. first you apply the base coat(we used black),then spray the pearl(green works awsome). after,you tape off some designs,air brush black shade around the edges of the tape. remove tape and clear! finished product,when it's in an angle,it looks black and as the light starts to hit it,the pearl and patterns start to show and then fades. :scrutinize: :eek:
makes you say"DAMN IT! I know i saw patterns!" :banghead:

would that work with metallic paint though?
yeah,but you'd have to spray the pearl with a gun.you can even use a touch up gun. also,the pearl comes in powder and is in jars.depending on how much pearl you put in the clear,the more the color will stand out. i'll try to find the pic of one of the first ones we did and post it!

oooo i might juss do that.... my bike is gonna be a new school / oldschool mix its gonna be a bondo frame with a few mild mods ... it has speakers molded into it so its not bulky n it will have a few tvs... thats the newschool .... but the paint will be two tone black and white and it will have very basic parts and will ride high with a springer fork... what you just described made me think to do that on the black ... giving it another newschool element... but subtle.... if you have pics of it and/or the process please post them i want to see
