Candy paint question...

Not that I am really close to painting yet, but I am always on the hunt for the perfect color. What I am looking for is a grey candy, if they exist???

Something like Sunset Orange Metallic on the Ws6's, but in a Grey shade. I don't want a paint to shift to differnt colors, maybe to just darker/lighter shades of grey. Where should I be looking??

I kinda like the grey on the new Rx8's..not a candy, but a cool shade

I paint candys all the time... I am doing candy orange flames on my stang... They make all kinds of candy colors... All it is a silver base with what ever color die you want to use... Candy is a transparent color. the more coats you apply is the darker the color you will get..... Check out this web site karizama colors.com...

Not all candys are over silver. You can put them over anything with "sparkle". Look in the HOK catalog and they show all of their candys over 12 different ground coats.
