  • Great progress here.

    Top work.

    Burning through is part of learning... keep doing it.
    You can't learn where the limits are if you don't break them!

  • Looks good to me. Actually, looks great.

    Things got shiny, alas some bits got burnt through in the process.

    No-one else will ever notice. They'll see it from at least 3 feet away and be very impressed.

    Let’s hope!

  • Any thoughts on how to achieve this type of effect? I guess lay down a base colour and then either sponge/rag roll/cling film a colour on top. Just looking for pointers on the technique really.

  • I think I've figured it out, just spray a bit of the accent colour onto steel wool and dab it on. Looks pretty good on my test piece but I'm sure it's not to everyone's taste.

    Just worried about bleeding under the decals that i'll be putting on top as the accent colour is more pronounced. I'll give it a going over with 1200 grit first though probably.

  • I saw something like this years ago on a car in a magazine. They did black, let it dry, heavy coat of silver then scrunched up a plastic bag and dabbed it all over and then a red tint lacquer over the top. Looked quite good. Looked similar to that affect.
