Wicked Tribal VW Drag Bus Series- BLACK GOLD Edition!

wicked_trib_blkGld_top1wicked_trib_blkGld_side2
I did THREE VW Drag Buses with this Wicked Tribal Graphic set,
EACH ONE however was given its own unique Paint Scheme, thus is really more like a “One of One” that a series car…or maybe its the best of both worlds!!  Either way, these are all killer pieces!
Here is the one have dubbed “Black Gold Pearl” obviously for its sparkling paint which has a slight shift, showing more black than gold in some lights.  Really nice!  There were four different types of gold and gold pearls custom mixed and used in various ways to create the unique fades of golden tones. All PAINT!!  Detailed lights and logo too!

Please See the HTC Shop Item
for more pics and in depth information..and if its not too late, you can add to your collection while your there!!

Only ONE Black Gold Edition was made, so when its gone, its gone!

Aged Metal RIPPED Evo GT — DONE!!

OK Folkes…here are the final pics of the Aged Metal RIPPED EVO GT that Ive been showing you the paint in process pics of. (CLICK HERE for WIP articles)
This thing is all paint except for the lights which are high quality metallic ink and custom made.
I also used nearly all waterbased “Wicked Color” from Createx. The only exception is intercoat and final urethane automotive clears and also alclad chrome for the base color of the metal layer prior to the aging process. I did a LOT of work with a “hairy stick” (aka paint brush..lol) on this one. Nearly all the ripped effect “ripples” shadow effects were done with wicked and auto air colors and transparent base all mixed on a pallet to achieve the right hue and transparency. The silver pearl around the edges gives a natural highlight and shadow effect which similates a freshly torn metal edge nicely. Shadows to the rips complete the look, appearing to be raised above the aged metal surface.
One OF ONE!! Hand signed on wing, incorporated into a rip.
SORRY, this one IS SOLD!!

I’m not totally sure this will remain as you see it here but it looks better than I expected with this combo of zenith gold / orion silver and some black pearl.  Brand new wicked tribal design by yours truly.  Will see what happens from here..but thought I’d share.

Aged metal Evo GT gets -ripped-!

Here’s another process shot of the worn metal Evo GT.  I did a custom mixed fade of pearl yellow to pearl orange.  All wicked colors with gold pearl flake and high performance reducer used for the fade.  I did the rips with hand torn strips of masking tape…gives it a really nice organic rough edge.
More soon!
