I was looking at the different paints available for my  up and coming projects and ran across some colors  that had clear in their name like clear red,clear orange. What kind of paint is this? The same holds true for colors with the name pearl in the color name.

Clear paint color means it is not opaque. Example if you spray the red over a white primer, the end result is red! Now paint with a solid yellow as the base and clear with the red and you will have an orange! Base blue with clear red, purple! Basic colors 101! 

I have also used the clear colors to tint windows! Caution- spray light!

Pearl paints reflect or change light! As you move around the painted subject the color changes softly! 

Hope this helps!

Knock it off with all the !!! It makes it seem as though you are yelling.

 

The clear colors mentioned are just that, clear with color or "tint". Also known as candy colors, most often used over a gold or silver metallic base.

Pearls use crushed sea shells (or a synthetic form) to create a shifting color across the paint job.

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

Wow! Try to give some information and then get criticized for my use of punctuation. Just so you know Mr. English professor, exclamation's are used to show excitement! I was excited to help another modeler answer his questions. This was my first, but now my last!

Thanks to all for the information,it's appreciated. In the future anyone that feels the need to really get something off your chest,the boxing ring is in the back room.

FYI-all capital letters is yelling.

Now that we got this out of the way,one last question and I remember seeing this mentioned by another builder,that he uses plain ordinary craft.I  don't think this would really matter because many manufacturers have a wide variety of colors.
