    Default Metal flake question

    I searched and found and now have lost and can not find a place that sold clear metal flakes. The flakes themselves are clear thus allowing any base color thru. Any help? Thanks

    Thanks for the replys. All I could find were 4 translucent flake colors on the HOK site. I want clear flakes with no color what so ever.
    I found a site once and now have lost it. Damn, should have printed it off. Maybe it was European or English site?

    Thanks hawkstone that should do. The reason for clear flake (so I have been told as I am no painter) is it will reflect the base coat no matter what the color.

    Thanks to all that replied. Hawkstone hit it. The reason for the clear flake is I want Daytona yellow with bassboat type flake. A base of yellow and colored flakes might get weird. Might come out mustard., gold, greenish tint. Its a long term project and will paint this winter or spring. FYI its a 1947 full fender Chief
