Am i asking for the impossible paint job?

I am looking at a project car and i have had a light bulb in my idea travels.

I want to if possible as an example to do say a double cherry red base and than lay a top layer of clear coat and black say like 4:1 respectively with heavy black drops.

The plan is a marble/swirl like finish simalar to or type of detail.

I have found a double head gun;product=8717 but I'm hesitant as to weather it will give me what i'm asking for any alternative ideas?

I'm kinda hoping it wont be a two gun job but its looking like it will be.

Have you ever painted a car before?

Easy answer: You can't do this yourself.

Expanded answer: It is possible that an experienced, extremely artistic auto-body man MIGHT be able to do this.

or, you can have custom made full car decal with this pattern. prolly will be cheaper than super duper custom paint job.
