I started cleaning up some of those practise panels this afternoon... after cleaning a couple with thinners I thought I'd give the Mr Muscle technique a go... I left it foaming for about 45 minutes and bugger me it lifted all the stripes off...

good to know it actually works!

been giving the leaving another try. (I still had some of that very cheap leafing from the DIY store in stock). just used 1-shot to glue it on the panel. the trick really is to keep the leafing as tight/even as possible when you lay it down. first attempt looked rather wrinkly. 2nd attempt went a lot better, although it's definately not perfect.
sorry about the fact that i haven't got any pictures, but i'll try to post some pics late afternoon

i thinned it down a bit with spirits
the wrinly effect is mainly due to my crappy way of laying down the leaf. the 'backingpaper' is sown to the other papers on 1 side. so it's a bit of a pain to get it out of the book nicely.
the 2nd '4' i did looks a lot better then the rest as it's the last piece i did

cant wait for the Letterheads do next year, got to be done. Whats this Mr Muscle technique then? I am waiting on some squirrel hair from Slovakia, thought it would be 'interesting' to try and make a brush. maybe substitute 'interesting' for 'fiddly and fustrating' but will see. Watch out for "The Crazy Brush"!!! Thanks to Neil and Mandy again for organising yet another successful event, some serious talent and expertise on offer. :D

06-10-2006, 11:07 PM
If you want to remove 1Shot that has been on for awhile... spray on some of that foaming Mr Muscle oven cleaner... and leave it for about 45 minutes... wipe away the foam and as if by magic the 1Shot has been lifted off and wipes away with the foam. Presumably there is an ingredient that dissolves the !Shot without damaging the paint... saying that Mandy said she tried it once and it discoloured the paint underneath.

no new pinstriping to show today, altough i might get around to finishing up a panel i started last sunday.
last night i was helping my brother to decorate his new house. he was gona tape off all the way around the ceiling, but then had a bright idea: "you're a pinstriper, can't you freehand the top bit of the walls along the ceiling". so i picked up this half inch brush and proceded to do so. dunno what he is gona do with them rolls of masking tape he's got left over :D

I've just discovered this thread and had to stay up to read all 78 pages !! - I did the striping course last year and only recently got the time to lay down some lines.

You've gotta post up some pics... its interesting to look back and see how you improve.

I will post some pic's when i get the chance - its strange because my early stuff was crap, then i did my best work so far, but can't seem to get it together since. Seems to be a mood thing - I struggle a bit with pattern ideas, pinstripers code not to copy but i find myself doing similar designs every time - does anyone else find this ?. Will try to take some pic's and post later.

there is no shame in copying a design when you want to practise.
that way you can totally concentrate on the flow of the lines

nefarious
30-10-2006, 04:20 PM
I agree... I think everyone copies design ideas when they start (and use them as inspiration afterwards)... its a good way to practice without worrying about having to come up with the design.

Dr Dub
30-10-2006, 11:22 PM
Been at it all day and finally seen some improvement. Plan to finish two pieces tomorrow and then i'll post the pic's. Currently use a mack 0 - My style has always been thin lines so i think i'm gonna order an excaliber 000, may suit me better. anyone have any advice on that ? - Has anyone tried a Kafka ?.

that looks pretty good dr dub. especially the flame design.
remember to put the color that contrasts the most with the background on last. that way the design flows better. one of your panels is white with a dark red and a cream set of lines. i thnik it would have looked better if you'd put the red on last.

i personally can't get the hang of theose macks. a 000 xcalibur is the brush i almost always use (i sometimes switch to a 00)

Ball park figure... about 40-50 a panel... ie on a bug, usually a engine lid, in a couple of colours. If you wanted striping around the door handles, up the pillars, on the boot etc then it would be a price for the job, not 50 x 6 panels... approx 150.

cheers buddy, cheaper than i thought to be honest,

If i am having a shiny non metallic paint job with lots of laquer, at what stage does the pinstriping go on, after the laquer?

nefarious
02-11-2006, 06:02 PM
After the laquer is best... you can do it under the lacquer but IMHO it doesn't look right...

Price will depend on who you use... I've been doing it a few years, but someone like Neil Melliard has been doing it for 25 odd years so you will be paying for his experience...

CrazyPainter did some very detailed subtle lettering on the back window of my car the other week, in Black and Silver One Shot. 'IT LOOKS THE ABSOLUTE TITS'. Painting on glass is'nt a problem, but some colours stick stronger and better than others.

The examples of CrazyPainters work above are really fantastic!

crazypainter
14-11-2006, 11:04 PM
yeah glass is totally fine but as Speedbuggyseb says different paints have different characteristics. I only use One Shot paint for striping and I know through trial and error that metallics and especially silver seem thinner in consistency and i would say probably less durable.

nefarious
15-11-2006, 12:07 AM
Glass is good for practising on as you can scrape it off when its dry... the thickness of the glass can throw you sometimes though...

As CP says... silver is a complete pig to stripe with, you need to keep stirring it to stop the metallic from dropping to the bottom of your tin and goes really claggy when stripping in the heat. Adding a bit of white or medium gray to it makes next to no difference to the colour but makes it soooo much easier to stripe with, a bit of tan to metallic gold helps that colour too... add a larger dollop of tan and you have stock Harley gold, great for recreating stock tank coachlines...

Personally I like Mack series 10 (blue wrap) '00' and '000', except for really small tight turns and then I use a well used 000 Xcaliber.

For scrolling I've tried the Kafka, Jensen and Vortex and get best results with the Kafka, although I still suck at it...
I have a series 30 '00' dagger that I bought just for the hell of it and really liked it, although the cheaper hairs are a bit springy, so I ordered one of the 'pizza boys' from Keith on Sketchkult... its a series 10 blue wrap 000 dagger... should be interesting to see how it performs. As the postage was high from the US I ordered one of the Makoto liner brushes as well... with any luck it'll make me as cool as him ;)

Pim... that wildman inspired piece rocks... did you use a scroll brush in there at all, or was that the trusty Xcaliber?

Found this box propped up by the door at work, Pete was clearing out his workshop, didn't know what to do with the box, but didn't want to chuck it... got the fat dagger on it (really rough wood so needed something heavy and simple) and now its going to be his toolbox in his rod... :cool:

I gave it a very quick wipe over with spirits to remove any crud but there is something on it in the far left bottom corner which means the paint didn't adhere very well... it looks old and weathered!!

Here you go, here is something that Neil at Prosign is doing for me, it's a bit rough (the board that is) as it is mid way through being done, it will have another layer of glass and polish after this, once that is done you will see that the red has a metal flake effect in it.

Also Neil is adding some more colours, he just wanted me to OK the size and style. i love the gold leaf. The board is 7' 1" in old money.

Think my biggest problem, other than the shakey hand is my engineering backround. Too used to straight lines and perfect symettry but i'm sure that'd come with time and practice.

Keep up the good work guys!

Copied a net image for the green/blue but was free and easy with the sky blue!

Started the white on this last week, just finished now. Shame I left the pencil on too long, won't come off now (but some of my paint has!)

bloody addictive this striping lark.

What pencil are you using? If you use a Stabilo water soluble pencil to lightly mark where you want marks, you can wipe it off with a damp cloth or a wetted finger once the paint is dry... (you can even do it when the paint is still sticky if you use a really wet cloth and lightly wipe the surface... thats what I do at shows)...

bugbits
05-02-2007, 02:12 PM
I think that's the problem, I got carried away and the pencil marks are not exactly light! The pencils are the stabilos I got with my PUK starter kit.

Is it an adhesion problem that causes the paint to fall off? Do I need to specially prep the panels other than cleaning them?

Dr Dub
05-02-2007, 07:45 PM
Ensure your pencil is sharp and only press lightly - should help you - For prep, i use meths and clean the surface very well several times, you can use a very fine cutting compound, autoglym do one but you shouldn't really need to unless the surface has been continually waxed polished. For some reason the darker Stablo pencils don't always come off well anyway. Hope this helps.

ok, i've been a massive fan of this kind of art for ages but have such an unsteady hand there is no way i'll be doing any creating myself, but.....

I decided on finding an image and becoming a canvas,

have never seen a pinstripe tattoo of this style and was keeping it quiet as didnt want to see others appearing with similar, but my problem is i have the bug really badly now and want to find someone willing to design a piece for my entire back :D

here is my first bit of body art :D :D :D

I shall be going to see mandy and neil at prosign when my broken arm will let me get back to london, but was a) wondering if anyone else has pinstripped body art and b) if anyone is interested in designing an entire back piece incorperating a vw badge and other tiki images :D

a quick question for the stripers :)

once a car is striped, say like manzos, is there any special aftercare at all?

ie, can you wash and polish the car normally or do you just avoid the striping?

maybe a daft question but i have always wondered :)


cheers
paul :D

ps...the striping on oddball looks orsum :)

nefarious
28-03-2007, 01:58 PM
Polish, no, wax, yes...

Polish rubs away at the paint making it shiney, think t-cut... wax sits on top... the more wax you put on a car the deeper the shine and more protection. And NEVER jet wash the striping.

Leave the striping for a week or two and it will have cured nice and hard... wax it with a good quality wax like Zymol or any of the other carnuaba based waxes and it'll be fine.

Simon Watts striped my car back in 2004 (I think) and it looks as good as the day he did it... and I clay bar and HD Cleanse over the top of it all the time because it has a good few layers of wax over the top.

Some colours stand up better than others... stuff like metallic silver is very thin to start with.

The problem is that people like Neil make it looks so effortless... I think once you understand the basics it really is a matter of practice practice practice... You'll know quite soon if its something you want to persevere with. I'm sure being artistic helps to construct the designs...

The kits I sell come with a DVD showing the basics, but you are welcome to PM with questions (a fair few people do already)...

hay peeps!!

i have just found this thread some awesome stuff on here!! have been debating getting a starter kit from pinstripinguk for ages. just dont know which to get. the basic package offers a swordliner brush and small tins of cleaning fluids a dvd etc. but ive read the swordliner is for long straight lines. the more expensive kit offers shed loads more but is it too much for a newb!!! i figure the Xcaliber brush is an extra 17 ontop so should i just buy the 99 kit and have done with??

HELP!!

05-04-2007, 12:02 AM
I sell the PuK kit as well... to be honest, I wouldn't bother with the deluxe kit if you are a newb...

The swordliner is for all striping work, not just long straight lines. The Xcaliber is also a swordliner but with shorter hair... they are really nice brushes but you might as well start with the included brush and the invest in an Xcaliber if you think you want to continue striping...

So any piccies from the magazine launch at the Ace then..? Would of gone myself but we were on holiday in Weymouth last week...but how did it go Nefarious...? Ordered and recieved the magazine, excellent read, and am now trying to persuade the good lady to give it a go...she is really good at art and I feel it is a talent wasted, as well as trying to get her to try airbrushing...got one in the loft with a little compressor that I picked up years ago for doing some work on a blokes motorcycle for him.
On that note Nefarious if I was to try and bend her arm a little by suprising her with a "starter" package...would you recommend the 99 starter pack or could you list a few of the essentials. The 99 does not bother me if that is the best route, just want to get her all she would need to give it go properly. And my motive has nothing to do with the '62 Zodiac sitting outside the house at all...honest... ;) :incheek: :D :D :D

No pics... the 'launch' was bit of a damp squib to be honest, just a rack of magazines in the corner... twas a good night anyway, caught up with a few people who were down for Wheels Day so had come down early to go to the Ace...

I started with a brush and a couple of tins of paint (after going to Neil's course though)... so the 99 starter kit may be a bit much, its up to you. PuK sell both the mini and deluxe starter set, when I wanted to sell some kits I decided to just stock the mini kit... it contains all you really need to get started. The deluxe kit says it contains an Xcaliber for curves and Mack for long lines... when in reality once you master your brush you should only really need one. The inspirational books and CD etc are really just fillers, there is stacks of inspiration on the web.

Just got back from Myrtle Beach Bike Week... phew, what a zoo, rednecks and white trash everywhere, fantastic! I spent the week hanging out with East Coast Artie but I did manage to get some striping done... here are some of the more interesting pieces:

We were in the rear courtyard of Suck Bang Blow, one of the main bars that all bikers have to stop off at:

The black on the ground at the bottom of the pics is the burnout pit!

This guy already had the flames painted on his bike but wanted some outlines:

The burnout contest started at 4pm every day so we packed up most days around that time as you couldn't see your hand in front of your face half the time!! When its not Bike Week they ride bikes through the bar and burnout against the bar inside!

Wow... as always! You going to Stonor Park this weekend? Artie sent me back with a book for Neil that he has a chapter in... well worth a flick through if I see you.

We were using Kustom Shop paint all week, it dries much quicker than 1Shot... you should give it a go, with your intensive designs, you would be able to get onto the next colour immediately. I found the consistancy of all the colours the same, unlike 1Shot that seems to be thick in one colour and runny in the next... and it gives a really nice drag.

As we were striping in 85∞F+ temperatures it did dry a bit quick sometimes... we resorted to adding lacquer thinners to the high temp reducer at times, but back in the workshop the regular reducer was fine. I was only there 5 minutes after I landed and Artie had me using a new type of paint striping the wheel rims & springer front end for an old school bobber... I have to say I felt a right muppet for a while until I got used to the paint... I bet Artie was thinking "who the hell is this guy?"

So where can you get Kustom Shop paint from? only shipped in, or anyone here? Weird they all have the same consistency despite the pigment, weird in a good way tho! I can relate a bit to the out-of-your-comfort-zone-feeling. I had a mare on the weekend not with striping but still with painting, I should of just said "NO, SORRY, I HAVENT DONE THIS BEFORE", but I didnt, and I ended up wishing I had listened to myself. big lessons learned that day.
You used house of kolor urethanes at all?

I was a bit cheeky and asked Kris at Pinstriping UK about KS suppliers and he suggested Airbrushing Solutions, but they don't have any listed on the site... I should call I guess. I haven't tried HOK yet but I guess its quite similar to Kustom Shop as KS is a modified urethane... I was going to do a tank in HOK that was to be cleared but used 1Shot with hardener in it as they wanted to use the 1Shot orange as it matches Harley orange exactly. I have striped with HOK candy red though... don't ask, it was a touch up job... and boy did it dry fast!

It's interesting listening to different stripers and their attitudes towards HOK and clearing over striping... both Artie and Wizard said they never cleared over striping as you were meant to feel the striping. Whenever someone mentioned clearing to Artie over Bike Week, he had the same reply "That's bullshit, I blame Boyd Coddington for that... they never cleared over a Model T and every single one of those came out of the factory with a pinstripe"...

I'm not keen on doing striping that will be cleared over as you have no control over what happens to the work once you hand it over... no matter how many times you say "leave it a week and then dust a few layers of clear over before you give it a wet coat" and you know the first thing they are going to do is clear it when they get back... I did some flame outlines on a Pilot front recently... explained that he should leave it a good few days otherwise it might slip but he kept saying he wanted to clear the next day... oh well, you can only warn them. I guess the answer is to have a 'no I don't stripe before clear' policy but unless you have the clientele like Artie or Wizard you can't pick and choose too much...

If you do get some Kustom Shop, see if they supply the Kustom Shop scroller as well... I haven't tried it for scrollling but it pulls really nice freehand flames, it seems much more controlled than the Kafka and pulls and much more even width line.

Bike looks good, just enough to accent the shapes without going over the top... nice.

I have had the Puk kit for a month now but have been limted to two colours. Are there any paints on the highstreet that i can use as well or is it best to stick to the 1shot/HOC etc....?

I have also been pinstriping on transparent projector film to build up a portfolio on some of the designs a kind of 'try it out for size' before the victim gets it done :crazy:

will soon post picks of my work :D

Stick with 1Shot, its designed for the job, don't be tempted to use Humbrol, it'll kill your brush. Call PuK and get some more paint from them or try www.handover.co.uk

There is someone doing the little tins of 1Shot... if you can find them, they aren't on there always... this might be a cheaper way to get a good selection of colours.

Initially I bought Black, White, Red, a Yellow and a Blue... the idea being I could mix almost any colour from these, but it didn't quite work like that... but it was a good start. Almost all the colours are different, some thicker, some thinner, some cover better than others (reds and yellows are terrible) and some just act weirdly (the metallics are just that, with bits of metal in they tend to slip about more than the non-metallics)... I guess the only advice I can give is to buy a tin or 2 whenever funds allow... and create more colours by mixing the ones one have, you can create some really nice designs by starting with a dark colour and just add white to it to create lighter colours, then add a different colour to set it all off.

Unless you are a bit of a brush pervert like me who insists on buying brushes for the hell of it... stick with the brush you got with the kit (is it a green wrap or blue wrap Mack?), you should be able to use the same brush to perform everything (except scrolling) with practice... you don't want to switch brushes halfway through a job because you need to pull a curve instead of a straight line. By all means buy an Xcaliber to see if you prefer it over the Mack... personally I tend to prefer the Mack for most jobs.

Nearly done on my shop sign. Its on perspex and casts a good shadow when the sun hits it so I am going to mount a 'back' behind it with a stand-off of a couple of inches using some 16mm diameter brass tubing. The font used for the word 'CUSTOM' is my very own. Going to set about trying creating the the whole alphabet. Paasche compressor should turn up on Monday. I know I am going to have to put the striping brushes away and put some serious time into lettering and airbrushing amongst other things. It makes you realise the phenominal talent of Mr Melliard to have so many strings to his bow! There just doesnt seem enough hours in the day, but I gues if you want it bad enough you just make time and **** priorities!!!

Can't help with the airbrushing I'm afraid... last time I used an airbrush was at college and I wasn't very good at it then... my compressor is at my mate's, but I found out recently that his wife has been using it to pump up the kids paddling pool so I'll get it back before she blows it up... I've got some bowling pins that need painting and rattle cans are just too orange-peely...

... Battistini job sounds good, nice to have someone like that on the books. We spent ages checking out the Hogs Back Brewery bike at Wheels Day.

you've been busy nef!

went out to dinner with the family last night as it was my grandma's brithday. her brother was there as well and he told me that their grandfather used to be the chief pinstriper at a bicycle factory. ok, not pinstriping like we know it, just pulling straight lines along the frames, but still rather cool!

Thanks for doing my satin split bus :D
Ive been trying to get it done for ages and it looks the nuts the colour works really well :D
Even if it did mean my friend loosing most of his fingernails in the process after i slammed my door shut on his hand while moving the bus forward into your stall:eek:
Whats the name of that polish that you can use on satin paint to protect the striping again ive forgot what you said?

I can thoroughly recommend the Herb Martinez new publication, and as for the Ishii 'wildman' book......... YIPES!! that is inspirational, pricey but TOP!
Had a 'flaked firewall for this evening which I had to keep fairly low key-ish.

I've read Herb's book... don't have a copy yet though, not seen Ishii's book, is it the Mooneyes one that Kris sells?

Artie gave me a copy of the Timothy Remus book as he has a chapter in it... thats not a bad book.

nef, dunno if you've ever heard of the belgian VW magazine "Boxertje". bit in the new issue there is a show report on the T3D openday with a picture of one of the hubcap trophies you striped for them

"Boxertje" - I saw that name the other day on an old flyer, do they sponsor one of the VW shows?

Have you got a copy of the mag you can scan? Or can you get an extra one? I'm in Belgie in August so that issue will have been and gone... any idea if there is a caption to the photo?

Blimey... Goof+ and Boxertje, all in the same month!

Artie's party at the syracuse nationals

Noticed a certain Mr Melliard at the end there... did he get back OK or is he still on his way back?

Got a nice email from Artie... seems the panel I sent over with Neil made a few bucks, was a bit worried it would be lost against all the cool panels done at the show...
