• Alsa's candy colors are extremely concentrated and can be mixed in any clearcoat, inter-coat, base or solvent. As little as 4-5 drops per pint of clear may be used, and as much as a 10:1 ratio of thinner to candy. They can be sprayed over any basecoat. Candy concentrates are an additive. You could spray them undiluted with care and only as a highlight ... but they are best in either a thinner, base paint, clear coat or Color Blender.

• To clear coat: Mix the candy into your clear until you get the color depth desired (spray the clear with the number of coats you intend to make sure). A few drops per pint for a light coloring, up to 2oz per pint. The ratio also depends on how many coats you plan to use.

• Adding to high gloss thinner: A 10:1 ratio is the highest we go. Spray over Mirra Chrome or other paint job.

• Adding to paints: Just mix in until the desired effect is achieved. Perfect for mixing into white for custom fade jobs, or tinting other paints.

• Tint anything: You can also use to custom tint such materials as wood filler, primer, glaze, sealer, stain, grout, putty, etc.

• Note: Base paints can be enhanced in several ways. One way to deepen or color a paint job is to tint your clear coat (or color blender, other carrier) with candy concentrates. For instance, a Pineapple Yellow base paint would be finished with clear coat-tinted Candy Lemon Yellow or even True Gold. A silver or white base can become a true candy paint job with candy paint of your choice.
