Gloss Black
Wrinkle Black
Flat Black
Satin Black

Gloss Red/Blue/White/Orange

Chrome/Metallic Silver

Candy Red/Candy Blue

You'll start to see a trend of what you'll need but that's a good base for regular colors. Just get your samples/swatches together and offer the ability to order any color they like and emphasized that you only charge the actual cost of powder so they don't feel like you're charging them to "special order" a color.

feels like that is what you need. seems you will never have the right shade of blue, black or red. In the custom market most do not seem to mind and extra $25-100 on their project to get the color they want.

Eventually you will have an assortment of colors from left overs from past jobs. Start with the basic colors first, a clear, a kl primer. You can never stock the right colors bc someone will come asking for something you dont have
