Trad Flames from a Noob.

Post by Cherrybomb » Wed Oct 21, 2009 7:34 am

Finally got myself hold of a Mini HVLP Gun to practice with.
Scored some Jap Tank for free, Ordered some fine line and had a go at my first Flame Job.
I've drawn Flames plenty (teaching myself).... But Laying the tape is a whole new ball game lol.

And with NO stencils to work with. Just good old fashioned freehand.
All in all it didn't turn out to bad. Not great, But with some practice, We'll be happy. :twisted:

Next is an ol'skool paint idea I have.

A custom bike or a chopper should be something that has had the original essence of its existence altered to project the skills, objectives and artistic vision of its creator so the viewer or “beholder” and the creator can be positively stimulated by the actual bold or sublime beauty of the bike. Both need to project an essence of suitability, practicality, function and righteousness that has no stand for mediocrity or aesthetic blasphemy.

Warrnambool's south west of Melb on the Coast Ol Fart. About 2.5hrs.
Did'nt catch the road cycling at all, Not really my thing.

Yeah a nice Blue stripe would really lift it. I'm thinking of trying a Pinline edge with the fine line tape in the future. Not very Traditional, But I don't have twelve months to learn just the basics lol.
