The paint on this car posed a special challenge, because it is a multilayer Kandy. By their nature, Kandy colors are translucent colors sprayed over a bright base, typically gold or silver. Once the car is stayed in the base color, the Kandy color is applied in multiple coats until the desired final color is reached. Each layer of translucent Kandy color will deepen the hue.
We sprayed several test panels to match the color.
First came the gold base on a spray out card.
Then, we mixed in some gold flake with the House Of Kolor Kandy Brandywine.
