Pearl Car Paint Colors

Pearl automotive paint colors are created using special “pearlescent” with transparent coloring agents to give colors that have a rich shimmer of many different sizes and colors. Unlike metallic paint colors, the pearl pigment itself will give off a colored shimmer whereas a metallic pigment by itself will be some form of silver. Pearl car paint colors can be 2 stage where a pearl base color is applied then cleared or a 3 stage system where a solid base color is applied, then a pearl midcoat, and a protective clearcoat. Shown below are our selections of 2 stage pearl car paint colors. We have both types available in the store. Pearl paints are generally more expensive that metallic paints but most factors are similar to those of the metallic shades.

Candy Car Paint Colors

Candy car paint colors are unique in the automotive paint world. True candy automotive paint colors are created in a 3 step process with the first step being some kind of reflective base (usually metallic, the second step being a transparent colored layer, and the 3rd being a protective clear coat. As light shines on a candy finish it passed through the clear coat and candy layer where it is reflected back through the film and colored by the candy layer. This approach creates truly unique car paint colors that are stand out versus normal automotive paint jobs. The downside of candy car paint car paint colors is they are more expensive, more difficult to apply and repair, and often have less than1/3rd the life of a pearl, metallic or solid color automotive paint job. Despite these challenges many automotive enthusiast still seek candy automotive paint colors due to the richness of the car paint colors created.

Color Changing Automotive Paint Colors

There are a broad array of color changing automotive paints in commercial application but the most common used in the automotive industry is commonly referred to as “chameleon paint”. These automotive paint colors change based on the viewing angle between the observer and the light source. Color changes are often radical. Like candy paints, chameleon paints are a 3 stage process. However, chameleon paints start with a non-reflective base, usually black. A special pearl is applied over the black base and cleared for gloss and protection. Also like candy paints, chameleon paints are difficult to apply, repair, and are much more expensive than our conventional automotive paints (although our color changing paints are MUCH more affordable than our competition. However, unlike candy paints these finishes typically weather quite well.
