House of Kolor Visits HCC Ybor City Training Facility

January 7, 2013



HCC’s Ybor City Campus Training Center recently hosted the “House of Kolor” custom paint seminar given by Jon Kosmoski himself.

Who is Jon Kosmoski? In the Auto Collision industry, Mr. Kosmoski is best known as the “King” of candy paint, and the creator of premium “Kustom” paint finishes since 1956. Mr. Kosmoski is Minnesota bred, and built House of Kolor from the ground up shortly after his Eighteenth birthday. After only three years of mixing, selling, and applying paint from out of his parent’s basement, John would go on to set the standard for candy paint finishes for years to come.

John Bueno, program coordinator for the Auto Collision Repair and Refinishing Academy, alongside E B Auto Body Supply and Tools worked together to spearhead the event. In essence, our Auto Collision students, as well as employees of the industry were able to sit in on a three hour workshop focusing on the use and application of the top of the line products that has deemed Mr. Kosmoski, the reigning leader in candy paints.

John wowed our guests with mixing techniques, multiple custom finishes, and information that served to be invaluable to our students. It’s great to know that such a prestigious event took place right here, at our Ybor City Campus Training Center.
