Anyone know of a place that sells PEARL finish paint in spray cans online? None of my local auto parts stores has any, and body shops say they don't have spray cans available.

I'm not sure you could get pearl in a can. You could go to an autobody shop and ask them to spray it w/ pearl in the paint colour of your choice, but I don't think it comes in cans.

Pearl to buy is also very expensive.

Yeah, I have found that out. I might have to think about investing in an airbrush.

You can buy pearl and "art" spray paints at many hobby stores. They are used for general hobby stuff and maybe for model work. They might not be as durable as the car paints, but it might be enough. Maybe someone could use some scrap and run a test and let us all know?

They have paint like that at my local Sears store (I bought chome paint today and I also saw green paint that you can use as a chalk-board after it drys and some marble spray paint).

there's a local shop here that will put it into a can for me, but because it's in a pressurized canister it would have to be shipped ground. I also don't know if it would get through customs at the border.

I did find a very few pearl colors in model paints at a hobby shop, but it would cost a ton to do a case. Tiny cans for a lot of cash. I am also not really sure they are true PEARL finishes.

CrystalMethod, thanks for the effort, but I don't think UPS or Fedex will transport spray cans, period. At least, UPS has huge signs listing both paint and spraycans as a no-no. Aa local body supply store made it plain that finding pearl in a spray can in the States is next to impossible. Thats why I am checking eBay out for a halfway decent deal on an airbrush and/or compressor.
