Nice work. Never heard of Peak. That brush is for solvent based paints correct? Did you use frisket paper or an acetate stencil for the skull? - :confused:

I've done some airbrushing in the past, These are a few I did for SVO(Ford special vehicle operations).........



The tall valve cover was for race cars that had tall roller rockers in them and the other 2 were for regular rockers. They were made of aluminum so I had to use greys. They were used in the '95 SVO catalog. They have to make the catalogs a bit before release. They made the designs for the valve covers but had not produced them yet. I had to draw up the valve covers from the prints then airbrush them using frisket paper and water based tubed guasch paints. After the introduction of Photochop and Illustrator, there was little need for skilled air brush artists in the commercial art industry. I remember they always mentioned that there would be no lost jobs with the introduction of the compooter. What a bunch of BS - :dodgy:

Sry.....didn't mean to hijack your thread lol - :blush:

Peak is from out of Japan you can only get it from one place in the U.S., it is the same level as mid grade Iwata and richpen, if you know who they are. It can be used with water or solvent based paints, the paint above is water based textile(t-shirt) paint, I just got some new solvent based paint that just came out by mike learn but i have to pick up a good respirator before i spary with it.

skull was made using free hand stencil, found a pic online of what i am talking about:

its just a bunch of random shapes around the edge that you use to give solid edges

I have a Thayer & Chandler brush and a Pache compressor that I got in college. I don't get the stencel thing. You mean all of the shapes are cut out and you spray along the edges? I cut all of my stuff out w/a X-acto and #11 blade -

ya you just use the shape as an edge to give a nice clean cut line.

I have a Thayer & Chandler to, its a vega 2000 bottom feed model

Is that a golden quarter?

They don't look golden to me... If it does, it's probably the white balance, or your computer screen..
