  • need help on pearl paints

    I wanna paint my bike white with green flake. Is this possible? Ive seen white with gold, blue or white pearl but have never seen green. Also is there any place on the web that has good prices for that stuff? Thanks

    pearl is more steps so more money
    you can do pretty much any color you want just make sure that the mixer gives you a record of the formula
    No formula with custom color means complete repaint
    Pearls can be funny even to match with formula , air pressure changes have been reported to change color
    Find a dupont distributer in your area , they should have samples of non factory colors that have lots of flake

        Yes. DuPont Refinish Paint Systems are a better quality then Nason. Both are owned by DuPont though.

        John, PM me if you would like to talk more about this.

          You want to flake it or just green pearl? I got my ghost pearl from http://www.paintwithpearl.com/. I sprayed mine in the first coat of clear on top of blue and I'm very happy with it. I used Nason
