Although I've not got near the skill as my fro haired brother above, I did a little painting today too. Running forks through the booth the last few days has been a little monotonous but satisfying to get them ready to go to their new homes.
I thought I'd share two of some of the work I did this morning.
The first fork is for Alan, a BOI painted in a silver to red to match his late model Fat Ti. I started by laying down a few layers of sanded primer...
Once blown off, I taped up the crown race and put my happy little caps on the canti bosses, then the silver metallic goes down...
The silver is a base for the overlying color, a sunset red, that is translucent and relies on the base to give it a bit of a kick. The color begins somewhat faded, but gets richer with each successive layer. Here's the first coat...kinda weak looking, eh?
After four coats though, the depth really begins to come out. Now that's better!
The next fork is for Jared in Reno and will be accompanying his Yo frame that is in for a repaint as well.
You Fat fans should recognize this color...half of a fairly well known paint scheme.
