Furthermore, investing in candy red paint for cars will be a fantastic investment in your vehicle and you'll definitely add value through your new paint job!

In this article, we’ll have a closer look at candy paints, as well as present you with a professional kit for painting your car candy red.

What is Candy Paint?

Candy paint does not just refer to a certain colour but it is also actually a type of paint. It is always applied over a base colour as candy paint is essentially a tinted clear coat, and this is what gives it the translucent appeal that it has. In most cases, it is a metallic paint that is first applied and then the candy paint on top and when light shines through it gives the appearance of very deep and rich colour.

Candy paint really allows you to get a range of different effects as you can change the hue by adding additional coats in certain areas.

Candy paint can be quite difficult to get completely right as it needs to be laid on evenly by a professional hand.
