Ruby Red Metallic Paint Pigment – Candy Pearl ®
This 25 gram
Ruby Red DIY Paint Colors ®
This 25 gram Ruby Red Metallic Paint Pigment Candy Pearl Paint powder is a great pigment for creating your very own tinted metallic clears in faux finish or auto custom paint or powder-coating applications. It is guaranteed to mix well with any solvent based paints, water based paint, or tinted candy paints, and has a temperature threshold of about 400 degrees fahrenheit. It is a very fine powder and will spray well through airbrushes, powder guns, and HVLP paint guns. Ruby Red Candy Pearl is very light, so it stays well mixed in paint without settling too fast in your gun, and can make great tinted clears for light to heavy effects (it’s your choice). One 25 gram bag treats from 1 to 2 quarts of clear.
Remember, if you want your paint to take on the actual color of the Ruby Red candy pearls, we suggest painting it over a black base coat. If you already have a black car, then it can be scuffed up to make a good surface to paint on.
We have seen our candy paint pigment used in many industries, including powder coating, plastic manufacturing, custom airbrush art, and gel coating. They work just as well for beginners as they do for professionals. One common mistake that beginners make is that they buy our Ruby Red Metallic Paint Pigment candy pearl when they want to create a paint that changes in the sun, or as we call it, a “ghost” pearl paint job. These candies will change the overall color of your project, so please keep that in mind! Remember to visit our tips pages for other useful information.

We recommend using 1 bag per quart of sprayable clear for an opaque metallic like paint. For a more translucent candy type of paint mix 1 bag to 2 quarts of sprayable clear. These are starting ratios and can be adjusted for your specific job. If you have any questions you can always contact us or visit our FAQs page.
All of our products work with car paint and are key to a great custom paint job. Our full line can be used as epoxy pigment on tables and in resin applications. Pearl paint pigments and Candy Paint pigments are very versatile and easy to use in any clear paint application. Give them a try!
