busy busy busy

Been busy with bunch of crazy small and big projects, mostly not worth documenting. some  pinstriping restoration ,some fender bender crap, some small artwork. It was crazy azz month. I did cool scooter repaint . I received it  completely trashed .someone brushed and rolled  enamel paint all over it and tried to fix it with paint remover!!!! I painted with stage marble effect to give some texture and cherry candy.Lots of work. Wheels, front and rear suspension, all the plastic panels had to be completely sanded ,blasted, scraped before i could even think on shooting primer. almost 3 weeks from day zero to delivery. Glad is done and glad owner is super happy:)

I found couple hours to paint Jim Morrison for the friend in town.

Goalie hockey mask

I spent my weekend painting this goalie hockey mask. The mask was originally metallic red and in decent condition, which made the prep a little easier on me. I started with a fresh coat of white base over the primer, then some toned-down skin tone color, art work and finally, clear coat. It was all done with HOK paints. The back plate piece was airbrushed with very thin sepia and some pagan gold candy. The main mask was mainly painted using traditional brush and finished by airbrush to get the smooth look and to add few shadows. The first layer of clear was mixed with little blue ice pearl, just a small touch. It was fun a project. I’m ready for the next one. ūüôā
