Question for painters new and advanced..
 
Hey Painters and Enthusiasts!
Throwing the idea out there. If one would host an RC Airbrush Rendezvous for a weekend, covering basics, techniques, stencils, and even vector art/plotter classes, would anyone be interested in attending? Obviously there would be a fee for the instructors but would anyone find it worth it? I been wanting to do one for YEARS..i think this could be a GREAT time. Thoughts?

Hi Charlie,

Met you at GLARCRC last week while we were tearing down the track. As long as it's an off-weekend, I'd be interested. Would it be a hands-on workshop format or more of an instructional/lecture/demo format? Either way, count me in! :nod:

Cosmo 05-01-2015 09:41 AM

I think it's a great idea. I'd be happy to either attend or instruct.

I have 26 years of experience in the graphic design field, have run a sign shop, and have been a tutor at the local community college in the graphic design program. I'd be happy to share what I know about Illustrator, masks, plotters, etc.

This would be a FULL hands on RC Airbrush clinic with paint, airbrushes and other materials provided that is included with the cost. Bodies will be provided or you can bring your own. In the end, one should be able to paint a great looking body and take with them what they have learned. I think it is totally doable and could spark a lot of interest for future classes.

Cosmo 05-01-2015 12:49 PM

I'll help however I can. Just let me know if you need it.

No problem. My day job is web site design/development so I can help with that as well if you need it.

Cosmo 05-01-2015 01:30 PM

I realize I'm putting the cart before the horse here, but I could see a body company helping to sponsor the event. They could donate bodies (or wholesale them) and when people signed up they would have get a body as part of their entry fee.

That is correct and is already in the plans. ALL materials will be provided including airbrush and paints.

Cosmo 05-01-2015 03:41 PM

Sweet!

I'm looking for the "like" button...

If we can get a class of 10 or more, that would be pretty awesome!

jrmarquez.702 05-04-2015 05:31 PM

Would this be held somewhere in cali?

If it worked out okay, we could do an East Coast version too...

Sk3tch 05-15-2015 05:21 PM

I'm down with the east coast version. I'd love to attend and learn.

Dude..I'd probably have you teach!

R/C Lidz 05-18-2015 02:52 PM

west coast would definitely be more fun, but the cost kicks us east coasters right in the nuts :/

spookie 05-18-2015 04:42 PM

Shoot maybe live stream a couple of feeds of people working and sharing tips? Ustream does this type of stuff all the time. Some even stream live through youtube. A couple of GoPros with wireless or tied to a laptop broadcasting. I would watch for sure.

Tommy Nobrakes 05-18-2015 04:49 PM

I'd be interested :nod:

charlie_b 05-19-2015 01:13 AM

For the firs ones will be in Socal and get a feel of teh interest. If it actually works out, then there is no reason to expand eastward. Getting closer everyone. STay tuned!

Except for those of us 3000 miles away who may have a hard time making it to California...

sincal24 05-19-2015 04:27 PM

I'm in central ca and would travel to so ca to attend for sure

qstorm777 05-26-2015 05:46 AM

I definitely would be interested if you did it on the east coast.

charlie_b 05-26-2015 09:30 AM

This is great! Im currently working on the details with the paint manufacturers as well as venues to host this. I think it will be a blast!

CapOne818 05-26-2015 09:43 AM

Looking forward to the details!

PaintingRoly 05-26-2015 12:54 PM

I'd love to spend a day learning from you guys..

R/C Lidz 05-27-2015 08:40 AM

lol

How do you guys deal with over spray. My main issue is with doing shadowing on tight corners, I am getting bad over spray, but it is so thin I can't see it until I spray the backing color. Exp black shadowing backed by white, looks awful. I was only spraying at 20 psi

Stevomatik 07-02-2015 01:46 PM

I'm in... Sounds like it'll be a lot of fun

Can you post a pic of what you're talking about?

MMCCOY 08-26-2015 08:43 AM

COSMO can I ask you some questions about cutting and masking materials
Thanks Mel

Viking Racing 08-27-2015 10:37 AM

In my experience, over spray is usually caused by too much pressure. Don't be afraid of going lower. I go as low as possible while still getting the paint to atomize properly. Thinning the paint will help you go with lower psi's. It also depends on the paint you are using. With Spaz stix, i use the surface prep to keep the over spray down, and about 10 psi. With auto air, i thin the paint and go with a much lower psi than they recommend, 10-20 depending on the thickness of the paint.

The whole white area has a black tint to it. This was after cleaning the surface 3 times, unfortunately the black settled into the roughed up areas and I was unable to remove it. It did look much worse. Ignore the black shading around the outside, It did originally fade to white, but after cleaning left a hard line and I didn't want to test my luck again. I did get some feedback in the painters chat about this too. I guess they are called ghost farts. And it is caused by static.
