House of Kolor paint has dominated the custom paint world since its founding in 1956. From this time, one of the lines staple bases has been BC04, Stratto Blue. Not only is this one of the most popular bases 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 custom painting is people taking shortcuts when it comes to the basecoats applied underneath candy paint jobs. The obvious importance of a product like Stratto Blue House of Kolor paint is to provide the reflective properties so light can bounce back through the transparent topcoat giving off that beautiful Kandy finish. However, while many metallic blue basecoats can give a similar effect, BC04 Stratto Blue is loaded with 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. House of Kolor Stratto Blue is made to reflect the suns rays in such a way that is will not overburden the pigments in the candy coat. The result is an incredible finish that will not only dazzle onlookers now, but continue to impress for a long time.
