The only thing I can say to get flake like this is to use HOK metaljuls.  I think this might be a better route though money wise and color variety.  They also make a Metalume by HOK but I have yet to see anything sprayed with it.

This was using the HOK metaljuls with candy over it.  I think your way would be so much easier and way more cheaper

 

I looked into some house of colors paints, but the cons out weighed the pro's 

 

The folk art metal flake has almost everything I was looking for,    relatively cheap, readily available, 20+ colors to choose from, and easy to clean.        

 

 then it gives you an awesome finish to top it off.  what more could you want  lol

NICE WORK JASON!...


I HAVEN'T TRIED IT ON MODEL CARS YET, BUT WOULD LIQUID MASK WORK BETTER THAN TAPE IN SOME CASES?

I was thinking about giving Liquid Mask a try too (I've never used it before), prob not on this model, but i will have to pick some up and test it out.

Exactly after seeing what you did I will be trying this out instead of the HOK.  Plus I bet I could buy about 15 colors for price of one HOK haha thanks again for showing this to everyone

I am wondering how these Folk Art paints would mix with Pearl Ex powders... pearl and flake would make for some pretty wild 60's style paneling jobs

I just did some searching. The pearl powder cannot be mixed with a base, only the clear.

I was trying to figure out what colour to do a Callaway Corvette model I've got here. I knew it needed to be flashy. I think I've found the perfect solution. Thanks for your tips as well.

I started playing with this paint today.
I think you said 13 coats. I believe it.
Question: How many bottles per car?

Jeremiah is correct.

 

 

David, it roughly comes out to 1 bottle per body (if you want your car to look like the video) (sometimes you use more, sometimes less), you'll want to get at least two bottles if you plan on painting other parts ( engine, frame, etc.)

 

(its in this video, around the 2min  mark)

 

 

but then again, it really depends on the look your going for (light flake or heavy flake)

It works great, but it isn't the easiest paint to spray, there is a large curve when learning to spray this paint.       All you have to do is "iron out the kinks", and once you get used to the paint, you can paint anything!!. lol

 

It helps to spray thin coats , and let them fully dry in between (I use a heat lamp). Not only does it avoid "pooling" of the paint, but it also helps you to add more metal flake to the "areas lacking coverage"
