In this clip we are talking about the different paints that we are going to use when repairing the 32 Ford. The base color of the vehicle was black. On top of that we mixed a maroon it goes down. After that we are using a gold metal flake. The metal flake is mixed into a non-pigmented base coat. At about half the rate that the original paint went on the vehicle the idea being that when we are shooting that car in ideal circumstances we shot the whole car one time full bore. Everything laid out at the same rate, the same thickness. Now we are having to do a little bit of a repair. So we want to use a thiner mixture so we can do multiple coats and try to blend it exactly the same. The idea being that we can put on more coats of a lighter material we can't take coats off. The same with the purple canny that goes over the gold flake we mixed it a lot thinner this time so we can do multiple coats and make our blend really good. The paint that we using is really simple. There is the pigment and the reducer. You use the colors mixed them to get the color that you want and then you reduce it to get the thickness you want.
