EDIT 4-1, I merged most of these striping threads into this one, just a heads up.

For the same guy as the other stripe I just finished.

kustmace, you're pinstriping biz is good stuff. it is an area i know little about. you are good at it. it takes a cultivated sense of patience and control to pull it off successfully. it is not easy to do.

i give you props, mate.

pretty cool, but try tearing all but 4 or 5 brissles out it will take alot longer but you will be able to work with it easier

hobby knife and gently tear away the stripe pattern,

Being as this is the Offical pinstriping thread,

I thought that was extremly cool.
Gotta give pinsriping a try, what would you suggest for a beginner; paints, brushes, books, ect

Paint- OneShot Sign Painters Paint. Comes in little yellow cans. Hands down the best. House of Kolor has some good paint to, but a bit more expensive.

Brushes- A number of sifferent brushes available, personally I use Mack 00 for 99% of my work. And I have some lettering brushes for cartooning and lettering that I got at Michaels.

Books- I have only found one that was actually useful. Its called "Pinstriping Masters".

Hope that helps!

Havent posted up anything for a while, so I thought I would do an update for you all.

Start with the oldest- A light switch cover in my basement I did real quick with some extra paint after another job. Tried a diferrent coloring approach with the red tips. Still dunno if I like it.

http://img220.echo.cx/img220/3581/dsc008611xl.jpg

Next, these were my mom's presents for Mother's Day, per her request.

http://img285.echo.cx/img285/125/dsc008673ad.jpg

Ok, enough of the dinky stuff, I know you all want to see some big stuff...


Here is the latest state of the constant work in progress that is my Dad's truck. The dash anyway. I officially hate striping dashboards. Unless the panels are removable, and removed. Anyway, my favorite bit of this one is the little cartoons I did on a whim on the right side above the glove box.

http://img141.echo.cx/img141/6666/dsc008704yt.jpg

And finally, my latest piece finished today. Pieces off of one of my co-worker's 56 Chevy P/U. Yes, that is silver, and yes, it was a bitch. I think they turned out pretty good though, and the pay wasnt bad either...

First piece-

Last 2 nights Ive been crazy busy! Just cranking stuff out! Please pardon the blurry shots, Im too lazy to go reshoot em.

Here's The finished version of that vlue one pictured a couple posts above.

http://img256.echo.cx/img256/7676/untitled17li.jpg

My new panel with a new b/g technique. Laid down a coat of clear, then laid some seran wrap over it. Wrinkled it up and peeled it off. Shots some black primer over the red and laid some seran wrap over that. Peeled it up, which pulled some of the red off. Reshot the whole thing with black, and this turned out.

http://img120.echo.cx/img120/8522/untitled13wx.jpg

One of my latest commissioned pieces- The head of security at a school I went to last year wanted me to do these for his wife. She likes roosters. Yes, there is a joke there, but this is a family forum.:D

http://img167.echo.cx/img167/779/untitled27kk.jpg

And the other one...

http://img151.echo.cx/img151/3417/untitled37sk.jpg

Another commission, the same guy I did those blue truck panels for. Delivery is tommorrow, so I hope he's happy!

http://img151.echo.cx/img151/2205/dsc009367om.jpg

And the top...

http://img151.echo.cx/img151/9864/dsc009388wd.jpg

Starting a new panel. Will do the back tommorrow, thinking black/red swirly stuff, like the blue one.

http://img151.echo.cx/img151/4081/dsc009351gn.jpg

And another new panel, think JD Green and white with some kind of kool effect.

http://img151.echo.cx/img151/918/dsc009457wz.jpg

And finally, a sketch for a pinstriped face. Loosely based on me.:D

Fantastic work KustmAce, youve inspired me to start striping too!

Here is the paint and the brush Im using:

Again, inspired by KustmAce, I just had to try that spiderweb:

http://img257.echo.cx/img257/9897/dsc057727ih.th.jpg (http://img257.echo.cx/my.php?image=dsc057727ih.jpg)
They were all done using Tamiya acrylics, horrible paints, not good at all for pinstriping but its the only thing Ive got for now. Im trying to get my hands on some of that 1-Shot paint but its rather hard to find here in Sweden.
