I need help finding this color, if it's even possible to powder coat it...

I want to use this on a set of laced wheels I have. It should be like a light metallic white base with a light blue pearl top coat. I've read about additives you can add to powder colors, wondering if it's possible to add a blue pearl additive to a white metallic powder or if you can add it to a clear powder or something like that. Here are some examples...

I want it to just barely be noticeable. The frame on the bike will eventually be the same color, and the tins will be the same color, only they will be a two tone scheme with a candy blue over metallic silver base.

Anyone have any experience with pearl powders?

Why don't you just paint the wheels that color? That way they would match.

Because powder is a hell of a lot cheaper and I have the equipment to do it myself, lol. Plus, it's stronger and more durable, much better suited to coating wheels, obviously, and it's easier to match paint to powder than vice versa.

I found a site, Custom Paint | Pearl Paint | Candy Paint | Metal Flake | Automotive Paint | Temperature Change Paint | Chameleon Paint| Car Paint that claims you can mix their additive with pretty much anything, including clear powder. It's pretty cheap, too, I might have to give it a try and post up some results if I don't hear any better ideas.

Exactly what i was thinking. Maybe a slight blue tint but powder is so advanced now that you can do almost anything in powder that you can in paint.

No, my point is, I don't want to use paint. I know what/how pearlescent 3 stage paints work, that's not what I'm trying to accomplish. I want the same effect, only from a powder. What I'm asking is if anyone has any experience with powders that might give me the same effect.
