I was just watching the show Trucks on TNN and he showed a 15 second clip of a paint called Exotic Crystal. It goes over the original paint in a black covering and then you do something after that to complete it. What it looks like when done looks completely amazing!

Anyone know where we can get a pic of this process? The final was like a spider web paint and would look incredible on our cars.

Try this site and see if it is what you're talking about. http://www.xoticcolours.com If you click on the "whats new" link it has the Crystal you're talking about. Very Cool!!! I don't even want to no what it will add to cost though.
If you go to bottom of page and click the "more photos" they show some other colors.;)

There is another technique that produces similar results.

Paint a base coat of Black.

Shoot the color coat of your choice.

Use a plastic trash bag to pull some of the paint off while it is wet.

Clear coat.

I've seen this done using House of Kolor's Kameleon Paint. Way cool!

thank you ksgt! That is the exact item that they had. I wish I could see a large surface painted with this to really see how it would look.

yes, I also saw that on trucks, it looks so cool (especially with their red and black) but it looks like it was raised above the surface. was it?
