25 Gram Bag Deep Purple Metallic Paint Pigment – Candy Pearl ®
This 25 gram Deep Purple Metallic Paint Pigment – Candy Pearl (slightly darker than our standard purple) powder is a great pigment for creating your very own candy paint clears in paint or powder-coating applications. This pigment can be mixed a bit heavier to produce a metallic paint. 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 Deep Purple Metallic Paint Pigment – Candy Pearl ® treats from 1 to 2 quarts of clear, depending on how transparent you wish to make it.
The beauty of this Deep Purple Metallic Paint Pigment – Candy Pearl pigment powder is that it can be used on everything from making metallic looking leather, to gel coat, to even faux finishes and in decorative concrete sealer. Some people use it for make up and nail polish as well.
Remember, if you want your paint to take on the actual color of the Deep Purple 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 candy paint pigment used in many industries, including powder coating, plastic manufacturing, custom airbrush art, 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 candy pearls when they want to create a paint that changes in the sun, or as we call it, a “ghost” pearl 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 candy pearls work great in dip or other coatings, we were the first company to supply the dip community with its pigments. If you have any reservations about whether our products work in dip or other coatings, you should know that we were the pioneers who introduced Plasti Dip 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.
