Hey ambro nah, I'm a Plant Operator for a bulk grain handling company. My olds bought me my 1st airbrush for my 16th birthday, and it's still the same airbrush I use to this day!!!!! I wanted a custom painted MX helmet back in the day and loved Troy Lee's work in the US as he was the hotshot painter in the MX scene, so started mucking about and after 12 months was getting OK at it, painted until I was 19 but it got out of hand as I'd have 3 helmets on the go all the time and would be up until 1am retrying to get them finished for race meetsmetc when I should've been sleeping myself before racing.....

Gave it away as it was interfering with my MX racing at that point when i was serious about it, I'd only painted helmets for myself every few years up until 5 years ago I decided to get back into it when my work went to a 4 day on,4 day off roster, and I had plenty of time to paint as had basically finished racing too, then we had our little one and now times fizzled out again...lol.


would of fooled me. i thought you were a painter some time in your life as a trade..

No formal training mate, one of my best mates is a spray painter and has helped me out with a lot of info over the years, and these days YouTube etc has plenty of informative vids showing techniques, and just good old trial and error....

racing.....

Just finished Craig's ski boat "Animal Instincts" today, candy organic green over white, with some subtle metal effect tribal graphics and ghosted "Evolution RC" logo on deck and my logo ghosted on the rear. About 1/4 through his big Cat too, hope to get alot done on that this Mon/Tue.

Mate i take my hat off to you. I just finished cutting out my paint masks last night i even found that to be PITA,

There is no way i can even get close to your detailed work. I will be painting tonight, will be to embarass to even post pictures up of it compared to your work.

What you do is a level that can only described as someone who has passion and loves to paint.

By the way that rooster tail logo looks easy by f*** it's hard to replicate by airbrush

Thanks mate, and yep the Rooster logo takes a bit to replicate in paint for sure, I was a bit suprised even when I did Coz's shell as to what had to be done to recreate it, I think that's why a lot of people struggle to see the dollar value of a custom painted shell until they try themselves and how long shit can take to do, if something looks like its hard to do that's probably because it is! *rofl*

When I first started painting I used to hand draw and cut all my stencils, and hence a reasonable helmet would average 25hours work which I could never charge for...!

In the 10+ years I had away from painting, technology came along way, and now I have all my lettering and most logos computer cut these days, saves alot of time and makes your work a lot more precise and professional looking, combined with freehand techniques it works sweet and pretty much all professional painters have they're own vinyl plotter machines for this purpose. I have to get my stencils done by a 3rd party unfortunately but just can't justify the outlay for a plotter for what is just an on the side hobby for me.

And mate we all had to start somewhere, my early jobs were as crap as anyone's....lol. And there's painters around that can do things I could only dream of, what some people can think up and turn into reality is amazing!

Airbrushing can be a bloody pita ...took me a long time to get used it to especially after being a beater/spray painter for 5 years

I was the best blender in all 3 prestige panel shops I worked in and painter but using 3 fingers compared to 1 finger tip is a whole different ballgame ...just can't get my head around finger movements as I'm used to the flicking of the wrist if you get what I mean

Can take a lot of practice to get good at airbrushing and a wild imagination

I think the next custom paintjob will be on my 1:1 VL ....white pearl base with a shitload of shithot pearls that only show up under the light.....real flames and a few other bits and bobs that I can do with my satajet compared to a little pencil
