Custom Airbrushing

Unread postAuthor: Urban Ninja » Fri Jan 19, 2007 4:15 am

Me and a few friends have recently started up a small local bussines concentrating in customising motorbikes, and in particular pocket bikes. We sell race tuned bikes complete with a free custom paintjob of anything you want, you can even send us a pic of you of ur gf or whatever u want and we can have it put on to your bike. But we also airbrush other things. We are currently in the middle of creating a site, the company is called SKIN-FX. I was just wondering if any of you guys would be interested in having a part of ur gun or any other object u have airbrushed? If there is not enough demand we will just stick with local areas. Thanks.....
PS I will get pictures of our work up as soon as possible, and i will also put up a few concept drawings incase u see one u like.

where abouts do you live schmanman? im just worried about shipping prices, but the airbrushing should be fairly cheap. depending on what kinda design you want. any ideas??
Thats awesome jrrdw, we should exchange pics. ill take some once i can get my new camera im saving for (should be few days now). How well can you do true fire? My favorite designs r skulls, or flamin skulls, they just look real nice wen sprayed in a white base, then covered in a nice candy.

The painting on the board is called "My World" you can see my imaganation(sp) looking over my world. All the white base is Pearl White, all the rose steems are Leaf Green, everything else is Opaque. Never mind the over spray, it's the stenciling i'm worried about, it's tough to bend these things around curves on gas tanks and not have any under bleeding/clean lines when removing the stencil. Keeping the stencil clean is another plus, to maintain clean lines/edges. I built the rose stencile's, bought the gun stencil, and in the process of building a gargoil stencil, i've allready messed up the face twice, takes a steady hand and sharp razor to build a detailed stencil out of Dura-lar. I use 10 mill for the base stencil and 3 mill for the layers. Get some pics up as soon as you can.

ADD ON EDIT: I havent done any true fire yet. The next thing i want to try is candy colors. But my shop will need a real cleaning first, i don't want dust on my high dollar candy paint job before i get a chance to shoot it with clear coat!

Yea, it's a 1975 550cc Honda with a 750cc engine on it. Inline 4 cylinder with a Mac header and pipe. All i have to do is rebuild the carbs i just got for it and put a battery in it and it will be ready to go! Thats where the pratice gas tank came from. I gotta wait for warmer weather to finish the last paint job, then i'm gonna finish putting it together. Depending on how good it runs, i might put this engine on a go-cart frame i just got, that will be a cart with "MASSIVE BALLS". I need to work on my stenciling technec. Any sagestions Urban Ninja? It's just a hobby for me, no compition for your bussiness or anything like that.

pretty sweet, a 650 cc go-kart? I have that beat. :lol:

I am working on a go kart with a rear differential, and a bored and stroked snowmobile engine a little over 1000 cc. the snowmobile, which weighed, oh, twice as much as the frame it is going on, went a little under 100 mph, so this thing should be FAST!

I probably wont ever finish mine, although I have all the parts. let's see yours! :D

JESUS CHRIST A 1000cc engine on a go cart! You are my idol. And a 750cc 4 cylinder! Thats gonna give it some muscle. Are your carts gonna have gears or just single?
I was thinking about writing up a small tutorial on how to create pictures using shields and how to free hand paint. I need to get my compressor fixed on monday, then ill get to work. Are there any specific designs you would like????? For beginers skull are actually surprisingly the easiest.

Do trees, thats a fair challange. 1 with leaves, 1 without. Do you have any stencil's? You can make them out of just about anything, wait untill you see the mountain senery i'm doing on the tank now.

well,it has the snowmobile torque converter with the belt, and the centrifugal clutch in one pulley, and the other one changes size due to higher and lower rpm, allowing you to take off quicker, and go faster. am I insane? :D

I have no doubt I will be able to do burn outs in this thing.
