I did a gold/bronze base fade job, one full can of All-in-one Daffodil Killer gold, two coats (half can) of Finkster Green pearl and two full cans of 2K clear (3 heavy coats).
Thats a real good job .... ya i was going to get a all in one can but the dude at mooneys said its better to do steps .... but now i see your job i didnt need to do it in steps

Looking forward to seeing how this comes out!
Also interested to know how much it will cost all up once it is done, I know buying the set up for compressor spraying and a dry flake gun can be expensive, but once you have it, painting with flake is actually surprisingly cheap.

I wanna see how the Roth cans co e out, ive seen guys use it to flake car roofs.

If you wanna try shooting with a gun, Intercoat clear carries the flake nice, need a big tip for bass boat flake.

So if you wanna experiment, a harbor freight gun with a drilled out tip, and over thinned clear will get the flake on. Stay way back and just blow the flake on fast and thin coats - the clear is thinned way out so don't get a run, just mist it on as a flake carrier. Let it tack off each coat, then start burying it in regular clear.

Here's a budget clear, I've shot this companies paint before on budget car repaints. https://www.paintforcars.com/mm5/me...&Product_Code=clearcoat_aecc&Store_Code=PFC#0
