So if I understand correctly, candy paints that the automotive guys use are just dyes mixed into a carrier. Am I on the right path in thinking that I could make my own colors using various dyes mixed into a carrier? (in this case it'd be an "intercoat" from an automotive paint company). If so, what dye to try? Aniline? Alky based? And my apologies if I'm really off base on this...partially going off stuff I think I read long ago.
