Bro it depends on your design and color combinations. the more color you want needs more time. usually it takes 3 - 4 hours. considering all the detailed color and design.

It depends on the project. I like blue tape for wax tranfers. Cheap tape when Im broke and liquid when Im lazy.

Talking project audacious

i finally finished my AUDACIOUS PROJECT.

audacious simply means... BOLD and DARING and my body speaks (or rather screams) for itself!

this is my first try in using masking. and also i didnt use airbrush... only use TAMIYA cans.

next time i wanna do a better job!

Default Masking

Kreator. The cheap stuff actually works the best. I perfer 3m 2020 tape. Personally I stay away from blue tape unless I'm painting my room. The most important thing is to burnish (rub) the tape to the body.

Here is an easy mask example. Lay down three rows of med width tape on the sides. Burnish that tape and the window mask. Now with a pencil draw your stripes. Cut out the Stipes. Apply star stickers within the middle of the body Paint the candy blue then some silver flake then silver. Peel your red stripes and paint those. Now peel the stars and the rest of the stripes. Pant the white. I look for stickers in the plane departments at Hobby shops- they ussually have quite a few vinyl cut sticker sets. I find stars very hard to cut because they will never be consistent. Check it out 2 hr job start to finish!
