Red Metallic Flake with Black Paint (Painttoad)

So, I am looking to possibly paint my own truck and I have been researching materials. I have come across a metallic red flake that I would really like to add to my final paint job. They say it is to be mixed in with the clearcoat, but I wondered, were I to mix it with the actual paint, would it make the flake more subtle so as not to draw ridiculous attention like some of these Impalas and Montes that I see on 24's with chameleon paint.

Re: Red Metallic Flake with Black Paint (Painttoad)

I mixed up some green and some red pearls with my black when I painted my radiator support after modifying for the Corvette radiator, and it turned out pretty cool. Looks black head on, but when the sun hits it, you can see the pearl. If that's the look you're going for, then pearls would be it. It's less noticeable except when the light hits it.
As for metal flake over black, I've never sprayed it, and I'm sure painttoad could help you more.

Re: Red Metallic Flake with Black Paint (Painttoad)

I don't have the materials on hand right now, nor do I have the time to do it. I am one of those people that plans every step through before I start the job, when I decide to spray, I will post the test panels, I promise. Wanted to know though, do I need more than one quart of paint and/or clear to paint my truck?

yep,if you seal it first you can probably get by with 3 quarts,but if you are doing the jambs,better just get a gallon of color

gallon of clear,also
