Had a great time at the show today…tons of great deals! Heres a special commission 67 camaro two car set..all paint 1 of 1s.
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!!
So….here are the last wip pics. Its just gotten its last intercoat clear to seal up final details and the lights..now its in line for final clear process. Wont be long before its ready for sale! Notice the signature on wing..hand painted. In fact the only things “not” hand painted are the lights. But even those are ultra high quality metallic ink decals!
I managed to get a little more done to the rips of the Aged Metal Evo GT before all the hooplah with site issues hit me!! lol
This has nearly 100% hairy stick work for the rips details and shadows. I just thought it worked well and was able to get some airbrush like effects from some of the ripple areas. Again, I was using Transparent Base and Wicked Colors from createx. Just a few drops of all colors on a pallet, mixed as needed to get the transparency level and hue I was looking for on the given area. Im probably going to lay some intercoat clear on it to get a better idea of what its going to look like finished. Will keep ya posted!!
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.
