Ive done a handful of patina blending and full-scale patina jobs for customers and myself and it really does take alot of work and imagination to pull it off and make it believable. You almost have to turn your brain backwards and think the opposite of what you're used to. You're doing a killer job....Im in for the it.
Thanks for the interest guys. I have made some progress, but it's just individual parts like the tank halfs. Nothing much to show yet.
I have been using most of my time trying to get a deminsional sign project done. I've been hand sculpting a 7' bas relief kayak from HDU along with the rest of the sign panels and brush lettering. After spending all of last week correcting a problem that I had with primer that blistered, I'm almost finished with it.
I'll try to get something to show on the bikes soon.
