auto air sparklescents
Extremely pearlescent, candied colors with tremendous depth - these are the best pearl colors available in any paint system without a doubt.
They not only great pearl effects but they have a hue shift over contoured surface and changes in direct to side- cast views, creating a "candied" finish.
Best used as a mid-coat color over a color keyed base color or tinted 4001 Sealer White.
Sparklescent Colors are translucent and require on average 5 - 6 coats when applied over a white base.
Use as a mid-coat over a color-keyed base reduces the number of coats on average to 2 - 3 coats and allows each coat to be applied lighter which decreases curing time.
Sparklescent Colors are a mix of the 4200 Series Transparent Colors, 4400 Series Gem Colors and a 4500 Series Cosmic or Hot Rod Sparkle Color.
Use of a Gem Color as a graphic color over the Sparklescent Colors creates a perfect ghosted graphic color.
