House of Kolor paint has dominated the custom paint world since its founding in 1956. Since this time, one of the lines staple products has been BC02, Orion Silver. Not only is this the most popular base to spray kandy paint over, but it is a great stand alone product as well. Like all HOK products, the Glamour Metallic basecoat line is second to none in richness and quality. It is as captivatingly rich as it is versatile. Use it as a basecoat beneath a Kandy application, or as a House of Kolor factory pack and simply clear over the top for a clean, vibrant metallic finish.
Is the ground coat important?
A common mistake I have seen throughout my years in the custom painting industryb is people taking shortcuts when it comes to the basecoats applied underneath candy paint jobs. The obvious importance of a product like Orion Silver House of Kolor paint is to provide the reflective properties so that light can bounce back through the transparent topcoat giving off that beautiful Kandy finish. However, while many metallic silver basecoats can give a similar effect, BC02 Orion Silver has metallics cut in diamond shaped angles allowing light to reflect in many directions. And while this added effect is only achieved through HOK Paint, it is the durability aspect of the product that most painters do not take into consideration. House of Kolor paint jobs done properly will outlast the competition by years. One way this is achieved is by using a full system of products. BC02 Orion Silver is made to reflect the suns rays in such a way that is will not overburden the pigments in the candy coat, leading to a much longer lasting product.
