House of Kolor Magenta Kandy has been a mainstay in the product line for quite some time.  Though Pink Candy and Purple Candy are not the easiest to pull off, they can really stand out when sprayed right. Since these dyes are sensitive to sunlight, topcoat with HOK clear to ensure the job lasts.

But before we go any further, let's address a few questions I get a lot of...

What exactly is a candy? 

Candy (or Kandy) is a transparent base mixed with a urethane dye.  Doesn't sound like much, but it is in fact this transparency that allows candies to be distinguishable from all other paints on the market.  Automotive paint, even custom paint, is made of grounded pigments that suspend themselves in a resin base.  It's through this suspension that the paint gets its opacity, or body, and the ability to cover a surface.  Candy, on the other hand, uses dyes, which allows the resins to remain transparent. 

Which leads to our second question...

How does candy paint work?

When light shines on a painted surface, it reaches the pigment and reflects the color.  But with candies, the light passes through the topcoat all the way to the ground coat and reflects back out, carrying the reflection of the dye with it. It's the combination of transparency and depth that makes a candy's effect unachievable in any other product. 

But wait, that means...

The ground coat is important

In a Candy paint job, the ground coat, or basecoat, is vitally important to the color outcome.  The color of the foundation, brilliancy of the metallic, even size of the flake can have a drastic effect on the final color. 

so, what your saying is...

House of Kolor Magenta Kandy isn't a color, but a range of colors

If you've ever seen a House of Kolor Color Chart, you noticed the amount of options to choose from.  Rest assured though, because whether you choose to go with Pink Candy  over Orion Silver, Pink Candy over Galaxy Gray, or over the countless other options, the result will be a custom paint job that only authentic House of Kolor products can produce.

Which takes us to our final point...

 Painting a candy is more challenging

There is a reason shops charge more for a candy paint job than a standard paint job.  For one, candy is sprayed in layers and thus requires more coats, and with more coats comes more time.  Secondly, candy isn't more expensive than other high-quality automotive paint, you just need a lot more of it.  Remember, we need a basecoat, candy coat and a clear coat to get the desired effect.

Something to consider when purchasing custom paint...

You’re not just paying for appearance, but for durability as well

How a car looks out of the booth is important, but how it looks three, five or ten years down the line is just as important.  This is the reason House of Kolor is the industry standard.  Applied properly, it’s hands down the most durable and fade resistant product on the market.
