Pearl paint in a can

A basecoat is used as a primary paint job or as a “base” that other colors or designs can be added to. With Alsa’s Killer Pearls as few as two coats will produce your finish. These base paints save time and material. Mix with Alsa’s medium reducer (1:1 ratio). Pearl Basecoats have twice the amount of pigments and metallics allowing coverage in half the time with less material.

 

• Prepare and prime the surface as you would any normal paint job. Shake can for a couple of minutes to mix paint.

 

• Apply 2-3 medium/wet coats allowing 10-15 minutes flash time between coats.

 

• Allow 15-30 minutes before applying the final clear coat or taping off for graphics.

 

• Top coat with a poly-urethane clear.

 

NOTE: Base paints can be enhanced in several ways. One way to deepen a paint job is to tint your clear coat with Candy Concentrates. For instance, a Pearl Screaming Yellow base paint would be finished with clear coat tinted with Candy Lemon Yellow or even True Gold.
