Initially: cambodian x steel blue = amongst other colors, you should create some grizzle, pastel, salem (soft (usually) irid - not sure what to call color in English).

Breed further; pastels - you want to develop more opaque. Keep breeding them towards white opaque. In the process you should create some soft colors.

To add metallic genes, breed to a platinum. You can breed to copper, but it will take you more generations.

*** Note: I have never intentionally bred for them, so I don't know how to maintain such soft colors so that it will breed true.

*** I'm also not sure if the soft colors are caused by certain mutation or by genetic mix. Usually red shows on fins or as bleeds/washes. Soft irid color as in pastel or salem(?) Are more common.
