Dead but not buried

This is a model that I was asked to paint by a car owner that had a model of the same year and make, however the colour was different.

He supplied the model (metal) and I applied the paint based on a photo that I had taken of his car in a local car show.

This is applying liquid mask on some of the small chrome items.

Re: Dead but not buried



This is the model with a photo I took of the owner's car at a local car show. Not exactly the right colours but the best I could do...then again maybe the photo is off

Re: Dead but not buried

I gotta ask...how did you rub out the clear coat? The colours are close enough and he should have been very happy.
Side note; I was asked to airbrush a copy of a Van I custom painted for a Dodge dealership in Detroit (1974) for an Auto Show. They wanted three T's for the models to wear. I knew nothing about T-shirts so I use Liquitex Tube Acrylics reduced with fabric medium. I swore I would never ofeer to do that again...

Thanks for commenting. I didn't rub out the clear coat. Regarding the side note: If you go to the "wearable art" forum, you can see several T-shirts in that forum (somewhere in the first 3 pages probably) and one of them I have given a WIP to show how I did the painting on a jacket, which wasn't much different from the T-shirts...one aspect is to have the T laying flat and not stretched out of shape. I still do jackets but haven't used the airbrush in years. This demo of the model is 20 years old.

Re: Dead but not buried

P.S. I didn't mention that I used a brush and tube acrylics for the jackets and "T's" not the airbrush. There needs to be more than one coat on most of the clothing since it is tube acrylics and if you water it down too much it goes on unevenly...but you cant apply it too thick either.
