Some of you may have heard me talk about that I do some airbrush work.torinobry has been doing some airbrush work in MI and got me insprired to fire up my airbrushes again so I have been doing some practice projects.I had this clock that HotRod Magazine sent me for subscibing and it had these multicolor hotrod flames and just wasn't good so I took it apart,taped up the bezel and fired up the airbrushes and put some kewl flames on it to really make it bling.
I was at a friends so I borrowed thier PC to post the photos direct
first layer of orange with candy red on top


next layer of orange and Tangerine candy


yellow layer with Pagen gold candy


Finished with Logo umasked

Thanks Ilyes came out pretty good next is Bowling Pin & a Mailbox which will have an eagle head that turns into flames then fire from there back.Bowling pin will be intresting cause it is like a verticle cylinder with curves.Thankfully I have a turn table to put it on and rotate it aI flame it.Trying to make some display pieces so I can promote my KustomPainting.I have some Harly Split Tanks that one side will be black with flames and the other half will have something airbrushed on it.Would love to go to some bike shows and set up a display and have biz cards to hand out.V Twin Bikes are fairly easy to paint and can make some quik cash.Painted my neighbors croth rocket and never want to paint those bikes again as too many pieces and have to make jigs to hood the fairings and tank like it is mounted on the bike and they are a pain to paint cause of all the curves and vents.I I ever do another it will be too soon but I will charge bigtime if I havet to so atleast the money will be worth the hassle.I gotta drum up bizness cause after that Chevelle body is done I will be needing work to have money.

Nice work Jeff. You have to charge for your talents. If you don't you are just cheating yourself.

Yah well that was the idea to make some sample pieces.My nieghbor did alot of the prep work on his bike and I shot it plus he is gonna be helping me on my jobs so I am getting paid just in labor.it is also advertisment with him riding his bike around with my Paintjob so it might bring work in for the future.Certainly gonna charge for doing a croth rocket more then I charge for a V Twin cause it is twice the work.I usually throw in a little extra effort so my work speaks for itself but I want to get paid for the time to prep and layout and all the labor but will do some extra if it is not too time consuming cause it pays off in the long run cause Word of mouth referals is the best advertisment you can getNIf your work is good it will speak for itself but if your work is great other will speak for you on top of what your work says.I ran a bizness restoring cars for 4 yrs on word of mouth alone and never was looking for work always had people coming to me.The final year I was booked solid and had a 6 month waiting list.It came down to lack of qualified help that basically ended it all cause I was overwhelmed with work and more then I could handle.I'll get to that point again but hoping by that time Carl moves here and finds a big shop so I am not trying to do it alone

Thanks Joe, I really want to get more into airbrush & custom painting for a living as restorations take so darn long and sometimes I lose motivation during a long build but I enjoy the airbrush work as zi get to create something from nothing and watch it take shape as I paint and wanting to see the final product motivates me to finish just so I can see the end result.   When cars give me troubles I am more likely to walk away out of frustration and lack the motivation to go back and continue but airbrush work for me is relaxing and enjoyable and even if I don't like a part I just painted I can erase it with paint and try again and fix the problem in a matter of minutes where as cars are not always that simple and problems can take hrs or days to fix.I would love to make money at something I enjoy so much but with this economy it can be hard to get the work especially what I need to charge for some of the real detail work.     Hopefully in time I will pick up some custom paint jobs but for now I'm having fun and building a portfolio as I paint different stuff and will have samples of my work to show future clients

Justin I appreciate the help but you have the photos out of sequence.I know they upload to the album in the wrong order.If you can edit your reply take the in progress photos off as they don't need to see the steps only the final result.I have those photos cause I am writing a How To with the photos for the Airbrush Forum I belong to.My local library has compters I can go online so 5 days a week I can get internet access to post photos and such.I appreciate the help you have given but they don't always load in order so it might be better if I take it from here.Thanks

Hey Jeff, my 20 year old daughter is not just keen but VERY keen on air brushing. She is currently doing a course and loving it. She has always been into cars and the art etc. would you have any pointers for her in the way of direction for work ?

I guess it’s a matter of slotting into a panel working/ painting side of things first

I have a picture somewhere of a Torino door she straightened, dressed and painted with a flame job while at school.  I will have a look and load it up when I can.
