Candy search for term

Candy Apple is a tri-stage paint that is basically a clear with dye in it. It is applied over another color (most of the time it would be a metallic paint) to give it extreme depth. Most candy apple jobs are applied over either a silver or gold basecoat. Spraying over different basecoats will give the same color candy apple different effects. If you spray candy apple over white, you will get a brighter solid candy color. Spraying over a black pearl will make the color extremely dark, but you will still see the pearl flakes the same color as the candy apple.
