Default Pics of blue pearls over light pewter metallic

I just wanted to see if anyone has done anything like this on a silver or pewter camaro. I really like the way it looks and I was thinking of doing that to my camaro in the future.

Picture of a blue pearl over silver on a lexus. The picture is not great so its hard to see the pearl on it. I looked for more but I couldn't find anymore

here are some pics of blue pearl over white, I found more pics of these then blue pearl over silver. Basically same idea but gonna be pewter instead of white. The motorcycle gas tank is the best pic.

And what I like about the pearl is that the pearl will cause the car to have a different sheen in the sunlight. like if you use blue pearl then you will have a blue sheen to the silver. Here is another pic I found online, but once again its blue pearl over white. You can see it on the corners of the car, it looks From far away the car would look all white but when you walk by, the blue reflected back, almost like chameleon.

Pewter is such a bitter/sweet color to begin with. It's a dirty silver, almost Grandma Gold, maybe a faded Mustang color? haha And then the slightest shimmer of blue on top of it?! I'd say no. That blue pearl doesn't even look too good over silver. That's my opinion tho so if BLULS!Z28 can get you a sample, that'd be best to determine if it's a go or a no go. Good luck either way you choose!

To me pewter looks better in real life then pictures and when its clean the metallic flakes really show especially in the sunlight, and the blue pearl it would really make it stand out.
