How Does Candy Paint Work?

The candy layer must be transparent for the system to work. Certain proprietary coloring agents need to be used to ensure the translucence of the finish. One of the most appealing things about candy paint colors is the chance to experiment with various base colors and come up with distinctive new shades. It is important to realize that the base color has great influence on what the final color will be.  Depending on the blending methods employed, it can either subtly or dramatically change the final product.  The number of coats or layers of paint involved in producing the finish also has a major impact on the final look. Oftentimes, using multiple layers will create a finish that is so deep in tone it almost looks wet. This “wet look” appeals to many auto enthusiasts even more than the final color itself does.

When candy colors combine with clearcoats and reflective basecoats (usually metallic ones), they create a rich, impressive sparkle that the average automotive paint simply cannot produce. These mixtures are known as “tricoat” or “three-stage” finish systems, and they are made to impress.

Red Car Paint | Candy Paint Colors

Red Candy custom red auto paint colors are unique in the automotive paint world. True candy 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 colors that are stand out versus normal automotive paint jobs. The downside of candy paints 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 colors due to the richness of the colors created.

Red Auto Paint | Metallic Car Paint Colors

Red Metallic colors are created from finely ground and classified aluminum particles combined with special color pigments to provide coloration and allowing the aluminum particle to sparkle in light.

Red Auto Paint | Pearl Car Paint Colors

Red Pearl 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 colors, the pearl pigment itself will give off a colored shimmer whereas a metallic pigment by itself will be some form of silver. Pearl 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 colors. We have both types available in the store. Pearl custom auto paints are generally more expensive that metallic paints but most factors are similar to those of the metallic shades.

Red Auto Paint | Solid Car Paint Colors

Red Solid colors do not have a sparkling component when exposed to light. Therefore, they are said to be of “solid” hue. This aspect makes them easier to apply, easier to repair, and generally less expensive than pearls and metallic colors. Longevity is comparable to metallics and pearls. Don’t mistake lack of sparkle for boring color. There are many rich, eye popping solid custom paint auto colors available. Download our most popular solid colors collection by clicking the image.

Red Car Paint | Low Gloss Solid Single Stage Car Paint Colors

There are a broad array of color changing custom red car paint colors in commercial application but the most common used in the automotive industry is commonly referred to as “chameleon paints”. These 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.
