This 25 gram Violet Metallic Paint Pigment – Candy Pearl ® pigment powder is a great pigment for creating your very own tinted clears in paint or powder-coating applications. It is guaranteed to mix well with any clear paints or tinted candy paints, and has a temperature threshold of about 400 degrees fahrenheit. It is a very fine powder and will spray well through airbrushes, powder guns, and HVLP paint guns. It is very light, so it stays well mixed in paint without settling too fast in your gun, and can make great tinted clears for light to heavy effects (it’s your choice). One 25 gram bag of Violet Metallic Paint Pigment – Candy Pearl ® treats from 1 to 2 quarts of clear. We sell to hundreds of different types of coaters, including dippers, nail polish manufacturers, Theme Park painters, and custom shoe designers, to name just a few.
Remember, if you want your paint to take on the actual color of the Violet candy pearl, we suggest painting it over a black base coat. If you already have a black car, then it can be scuffed up to make a good surface to paint on.
We have seen our violet Color Pearls paint pigment used in many industries, including powder coating, plastic manufacturing, custom airbrush art, nail polish and gel coating. They work just as well for beginners as they do for professionals. One common mistake that beginners make is that they buy our Color Pearls when they want to create a paint that changes in the sun, or as we call it, a “ghost” pearls ® paint job. These candies will change the overall color of your project, so please keep that in mind! Remember to visit our tips pages for other useful information.
Not only do all of our Color Pearls work great in vinyl coatings, we were the first company to supply the coatings community with its pigments. If you have any reservations about whether our products work in vehicle wrap, you should know that we were the pioneers who introduced Pearls to the world.
We recommend using 1 bag per quart of sprayable clear for an opaque metallic like paint. For a more translucent candy type of paint mix 1 bag to 2 quarts of sprayable clear. These are starting ratios and can be adjusted for your specific job. If you have any questions you can always contact us or visit our FAQs page.
All of our products work with car paint and are key to a great custom paint job. Our full line can be used as epoxy pigment on tables and in resin applications. Pearl paint pigments and Candy Paint pigments are very versatile and easy to use in any clear paint application. Give them a try!
