    i bought a can of roths warm beer flake paint from online, im wondering what would be a good basecoat for it and has anyone used the flake spray can? because im wondering if the flake paint is just flake and if i have to the buy the bascoat they sell, or can i just that use the flake spray paint into any basecoat and would it cover up a good amount of area

    What is the color (base) that you are using? The Roth color? Big, medium, or fine 'flake?http://youtu.be/9RfrntfGnBg Here is a clip using this line of brand of aerosol 'flake. Also try using the 'Search' feature and read up more information.

    Depends what look your going for. The final coat of gold I put some flake in and it wasnt enough so I mixed some in the clear and was happy with the way it turned out. This is on a tiny peanut tank and fender so I didn't have a large space to cover. Do you want to see the base color or just see flake? I wanted gold with noticeable flake in it but still able to see the solar gold underneath. My 55 ford is solar gold basecoat so that will give you an idea of the color I'm talking about.

    I'm interested in this as well. Thinking about using the warm beer flake as an accent color on my OT motorcycle.
