This photo of Pearlized Candy Basecoat is shown over our black sealer. True candy paints are transparent by design so changing the color underneath (called the ground coat) will change the final look. The ground coat can be a uniform coat of UreChem 2K urethane primer, sealer, or base coat. UreChem sealer is the most popular ground coat for this type of candy. You can purchase primer and sealer over here: primers and sealers.
Pearlized Candy Basecoat colors represent a combination of dyes and/or ultra-transparent pigments and select pearl pigments to give a candy effect that is easier to apply and repair. For more info about the various types of candy visit our candy paint explainer page.

How long does candy paint last?
True candy paints like our EyeKandy candy paints are made from dyes which provide a deeper, richer color than normal automotive paints but typically fade faster than our traditional solid, metallic, and pearlescent colors. The longevity depends on the amount of candy applied, which and how much clear is used, and how much time the vehicle spends outside in the sun. Vehicles that spend all day, every day in the sun can fade substantially over a 2-3 year period whereas many show vehicles that are garage kept and used for shows and cruising will last for 5-10 years+. If you are concerned about the longevity of candy paints you might consider some of our transparent 3 stage pearl and metallic finishes that have the look of candy with excellent durability.
What is the difference in the 4 types of candy you offer?
We offer candy in four forms; 2K urethane candy (EKU Series), Candy Basecoat (EKB Series) , Pearlized Candy Basecoat (KGC Series), and Candy Dye Concentrates (EKK Series). In general the EKU Series is the deepest, wettest, look but most difficult to spray and repair. The KGC Series is the easiest to apply and repair but has a slightly different look than the EKU Series. The EKB series resembles the EKU series closely and is a better choice for taping and doing graphics than the EKU series. The EKK series is best used for tinting colors.
How much paint do I need?
The amount of paint you will need depends on a lot of factors including the size of the vehicle you are painting, how much of the vehicle you are painting, which color you use, your spray equipment, and the technique and skill of your painter. Generally speaking a gallon kit of paint is enough for the outside and jambs of a small to medium sized vehicle. Larger vehicles or if you are painting more than the outside and jambs will require more paint. Quart kits are generally enough paint for motorcycles and golf carts. However, if you have a large motorcycle or golf cart with a lot of pieces you might need an additional quart kit.
Which clear should I use?
We highly recommend the UC-210 UreChem HS Glamour clear over candy. The UC-210 has been proven to offer more UV protection than most clears on the market which extends the life of the candy.
Which activator and reducer should I use?
The activator and reducer to select depends on the size of the vehicle or parts you are painting, the temperature, and your air movement. Generally speaking when painting a 30%+ of a car’s surface area at once you’ll want medium or “standard” reducer and activator as it is called for vehicle surface temps up to 85F. For temperatures above that slow is the better choice. Generally fast is only recommended for smaller areas in cooler temps.
