Do you hand cut each individual body <same bobdies> or do you use templates for the same bodies.For example, if someone wanted four or five of the same same paint schemes on mutiple bodies.
I see that you are using tape for the bodies in the videos, do you ever have the need to use liquid mask?
Very nice paint work, and it is great that you share your knowledge and talent.
thanks

If i do multiple bodies, then i have then cut out with a vinyl cutter. It makes it easier as well as having them more precise. Custom cut outs i charge more because it takes more time to cut as well as it being one of a kind.
I have never used liquid mask. It is a great product and bleed proof, but the dry up time of a day is too long for a customer demand so i shy away from it. It is all preference and if time was not an issue with me, all my bodies woyld be LM'ed instead of Blue 3M tape.

Lol, ok. Thanks again for the videos. You really inspired me to try painting. I stopped and picked up some paint tonight on my way home and I started masking a body. I haven't painted in so long I'm afraid of how it is going to turn out, but I'm gonna give it a try.

Thanks again!

Just have fun and most importantly, take your time. Do not lay paint on too thick. Just let it finish when you finish...don't rush it.

Drop shadows are a combination of fine strokes and dagger strokes. You want to try to keep the shadows fine and have it taper at the tips.
