    Going to do a phone case so cranked out a quickie test the other night. Tape is a little sloppy, but it was really just to test the colors so I didn't re-tape it. Nothing special but with the candies and some .04 flake it has a little bling to it.

    Think I am going to use this layout. I was a little cleaner with this tape job. This is sized to the phone as well. About 3 x just a little over 5 (I think).

    Did you use Createx candys? Can you tell me something about the flakes you use and how did you apply that?

    It's a combo of a lot of stuff. Actually the only H20 camdy I used was the Caribe blue. The other colors were sparklescent Nightmare blue and actually opaque blue thinned out a bunch. The flakes were from two sources. One was Hotrod sparkle from Createx. The other, larger flake was the Baby Flake (.004) from Lil Daddy Roth Flake. I've been looking for a more economical way to spray that. What I ended up using was cheap HF purple gun choked down a tone. That stuff is insane though! It's everywhere! I knew if from the last time I sprayed it but guess I forgot!

    If I can help it there will be no more spraying that stuff inside! Problem is inevitably some flake or two finds it's way onto another piece down the road (it seems impossible to clean it all up). Of course that looks out of place, on this though, it looks sick :). Bling, bling :). I have a huge respect for those guys who nail the lowrider paint jobs. Their color combos and layouts just dazzle the eye.

    I finished the phone case but that will be getting regular 2 part clear not the rattle can I used on the other little tests. It's nearly impossible to photograph because the colors just shift so much based on the viewing angle. That and it's so bright sometimes that camera just can't keep up with the dynamic range our eyes can see.
