Ive just bought a new XXX for the upcoming off road season but I am lacking inspiration for the colour scheme to spray it. My normal colours are blue, fluoro yellow and silver/grey. anyone feeling at all insirational?
drop me some suggestions or point me in the direction of some inspirational pics on the web
I just had a friend make a mask out of vyinal......(sp)....ill end up scanning it in and ill post it up...its like the crazy anled paintjobs on the trucks.....like the grens, reds, and stuff.....i dunno...ill show you later..lol
I've just had an idea that i think will work if you want to be a little more creative + if you suck at painting fine detail it could be a cheats way out :-)
1/ Get a sheet of transparent sticky backed labels from a stationary shop/ office supplies store.
2/ Find a cool pic on the internet which will print out on a colour printer (the more basic the better)
3/ Print out an inverted version (eg mirror image especialy if it contains text anywhere) of the pic onto your transparent sticky backed label.
4/ Trim down to size
5/ Stick on the inside of your clear shell.
At this point it may look a little transparent still but put a peice of white paper behid it and it should look pretty cool against the white background
6/ Remove the card and paint the inside of the shell in the normal manner over the tope of the pic which you've stuck on the inside of your car.
7/ Final result should be a s*** hot looking shell with a sweet looking graphic on the inside??
I've not yet tried this with a body shell (will do at the weekend though) but I have tried if for demonstration purpose with an old CD case. I Printed the pic onto transparent sticky backed label. Stuck this on the inside of the CD case. Painted over the back of it all. Result a cracking looking pic which will not get damaged as it's on the inside of the shell/case on this occasion. Only problem was the pic was quite detailed so it did not print out briliantly.
I figured cartoon characters would work really well as most of them are basic shapes and colours. I am going to take a Scooby Doo pic which i found on the net and use it down the full leghnth of my TVR tuscan shell which should be delivered tomorrow. Hopefully as long as all goes well I'll put a pic of it on here so you can see the result.
Let me know what you think of this idea & if you think it would work?? Maybe someone out there has a better idea??
