Metallic Paint DIY

Paint With Pearl has always been a go-to for the DIY people out there who just know how easy it is to do some things rather than pay someone else to do them.  The same applies to paint. What is paint? It’s glue (called binder) mixed with pigments and thinned to the point that it can be spread easily over a surface to provide a protective barrier. Our Metallic Paint Candy Pearls can give you those pigments.

  • First, select your Binder. Here you have thousands of choices. If you are painting a car or motorcycle, we recommend an automotive paint like All Kandy or Tamco. If you are painting interior walls, then use a clear Faux Finish Glaze. Some surfboard makers on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii are even mixing our stuff into Elmer’s Glue, diluting with water, and making their own airbrush metallic paint that can be glassed over when dry.
  • Then select your Metallic Paint Candy Pearls. These are normally applied by mixing 1 of our 25 gram bags to a quart of your ready to spray binder. Of course, you can also use them in brush and roll-on applications too. Keep in mind that you can mix any of our Metallic Paint Candy Pearls together to make an infinite number of cool colors.
  • Simply stir in, and start painting! You’ll be amazed at some of the incredible results you can achieve. All of our Metallic Paint Candy Pearls will pass easily through the smallest nozzles. They are great to use even in airbrush art!

We have a huge selection of colors available, and you can even add your own special effects to your custom paint jobs by adding a layer of ghost pearls or even our white chameleon pearls over the top of your metallic paint.
