Thank you...I personally don't like flames on a bike. It's kinda cliche'ed in motorcycles. Every time you mention a new paint idea to a none rider you get the "How about flames on your tank?". It's kinda like it's expected. If your going to paint, be original. That being said, yours is original and I like how it came out.
Is this your first time airbrushing? If so, thats a real good job. I have to respect the talent and time it takes to do it. Good job, your bike looks good.
Thanks!..I ended up getting an Iwata HP-C.It's way better than my old airbrush and I'm really happy with it..Question for you,what kind of paint do you use?Urethane or water based?Your bike looks great btw!Looks great !! You did a fine job !!
I forgot- what airbrush did you wind up getting ? Was it an Iwata ?
It looks a lot like my bike now LOL..
I'll probably try urethane paint next time..I used auto air paint,and tip dry was a pretty big issue for me.I think i'll try the Sherwin Williams clear next time too..Clearing was the worst part of the whole thing,I blew the garage out with an airhose,wetted the floor,had fans moving and still got particles in the clear...At least most of it came out with 1500 and 2000 grit wet sanding though..I should have just taken it to the paint booth where I work and put down the clear...It was a learning experience.I have a new respect for body shop workers.I use urethanes, HOK,mostly, depending, SEM makes a great white that shoots from the airbrush nicely without too much tip dry. Dupont makes good uros, and the Sherwin Williams automotive line makes a great clear that lays down and buffs out easily. For the airbrushing I use the slowest reducer to help curb tip dry, but it always happens anyway..
I have 2 Iwata HP Cpluses, but my favorite airbrush is my Mike Learn Mojo..Wish I had another..
You did a great job for being out of practice..lol
What ever makes you feel better.I bet he is divorced, and still can't figure out why she left him
Great Job! I am a big fan of green. Not bad for a York County Hick. (I am from Lancaster, no better). Anyway, congrats.
