Anyway, I ran out of paint to get it right and I had some bright colors so I sprinkled pearl on top of the black primer, I love the color but it gave me a color shift effect, not what I wanted
It looks like it has stripes and squares, but that’s because I sprayed 4 different combinations of clear and pearl in one area.

Yes, i burned a black base and clear kauri into that leftover cap and we used to spray 25 different test pieces on it.

This dark blue color made a comeback recently when Ford introduced the Mustang Shelby GT350, Ford GT and F-150 Raptor. It’s currently available on a number of the company’s vehicles, and it’s probably the best blue in the bunch.
