Re: How to get a Candy apple red finish?
The whole point of candy is to see through to the base layer. Gold = darker, Silver = lighter. More coats = darker. One light coat over gold wont be as dark as 4 or 5 coats over silver, it just depends on what you have and what you want. You already have a finished silver, Id just stick with that.
Clear black will tint the base coat, you dont want it to tint, you want the color to tint. Hard to explain, and it sounds weird, but its not going to give the same effect.
