I know firsthand how frustrating it can be to find a quality paint that lasts from a company that prioritizes YOU!


After leaving the Army in 2005, I bounced around a few jobs. Everywhere I was employed I saw that customer service from these businesses was lacking.


Only $400 to my name, I set out to provide a place for car audio enthusiasts to come to for the best customer service and some of the best quality work in the world. Cande Shop was formed. Cande being an acronym of my name, The C (1st letter of my first name), Ande (the 1st 4 letters of my last name). Carl Anderson’s Shop.

July 2017

I decided I no longer could handle the stress of battling with bigger companies with more buying power. Selling at dealer cost! So I took 2 weeks off, decided to attempt to re-establish myself with custom yeti’s. Armed with spray cans and vinyl I started. Quickly made a name for myself locally and a month later picked up my first paint gun.

January 2019

I developed Crystal Mess, a liquid paint mask manufactured in individual batches by myself. This was the start of Cande Shop custom paint refinishing products.


To always provide customers with a place to shop for premium quality refinishing products for custom paint & other coatings. With an emphasis on quick turnaround, shipping times and keeping you efficient with time & money.

You can consult with Cande Shop’s customer service team or use the resources on this website to help you choose the right products for your project.

What is the difference between Cande Shop’s basecoats and their urethane topcoats?

Can I mix different Cande Shop products together?

Yes, you can mix different Cande Shop products together to achieve unique colors and effects. For example, you can mix different Cande Shop paints, flakes, and pearls to create a custom color with a unique texture or sparkle. However, it’s important to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for mixing and application to ensure the best results. Mixing ratios, application techniques, and drying times may vary depending on the specific products being used. Always test your custom mix on a small area before applying it to the entire surface to ensure that you are happy with the color and finish.
