Duplicolor Car Art Paint?

Ok, this friday at school is spirit day (wear orange and blue) and I got to thinking..........instead of wearing the school colors, I could put them on my truck.........And seeing that my truck is orange, I could put a couple Blue racing stripes on my truck using the Duplicolor "Car Art" paint. I think i'd be kinda fun........maybe it'd keep my day from being so boring. lol Anyway, I stoped by autozone to see what colors they had, and they have a light blue and red......... I looked on duplicolors website and it shows they have a darker blue, but doesn't show the lighter blue I saw. So im hoping I can find a darker blue. If not, what color could I mix with it to make it darker? Anybody know if there is a darker blue?

make sure all the paint you use is the car art stuff, it washes off with soap and water, not just water. from what I've heard, it's good for pranks. people think their car got sprayed, but it washes right off. lol...

just be careful what you use...apparently that stuff got some good reviews above there, but a couple of years ago some kids did that to someone elses car at school, at it ended up staining the car...

This stuff hasn't been out that long. I got a 5 oz can of blue tonight....kinda doubting it would be dark enough, but I sprayed some on a piece of paper, and it looks like it will be dark enough. I wonder if 5 oz's will be enough to put 2 racing stripes on the hood and tailgate?

The window paint is stuff that I stay away from, my friends pranked me with it one day, I came out of school and my truck was rolling artwork all of the windows. The power washer broke it apart but whatever landed on the paint stuck and it is still there(some of it) today, that was like 2 1/4 years ago lol. Blades

Some of my friends shaving creamed my Cougar once, luckily they only got the windows. the funny thing is, they didn't tell me it was them, but they told me that it happened, and even helped me clean it off while I was on the clock at work. Then I found out it was them like 3 months later. I still haven't found out who smeared pizza all over that car though...

LMAO.. I wish I couldve done pranks like those in high school, we had too many parking lot security guards.
