    Dave that mini body is SICK. I REALLY like how you shaded the pinstripe around the wicked flames to give them a metallic blade look. AWESOME affect that paid off. Excellent color combo as well. Great job.

    Cory, yes, Saranwrap "scrunched up" to dab in the wet paint for the marble look. Thanks for the kind words.

    Just wondering, how much would you charge for this job (or something like it) on a B4 shell?

    Would you share your secret for the window frames and the contrasting outline on the edge of some of your artwork?

    MPTech...not sure I understand your question?

    Shoot me an email and I'll be happy to help you in any way I can.

    Fes, thanks on the bug comments. The new owner actually has it on eBay because he sold the chassis it was for. Search "painted baja" and you will see it.

    window frames and the contrasting outline on the edge of some of your artwork
    On the bug for example, you outlined the windshield and side windows in black and the rea window in yellow and the black artwork in silver.
    Do you cut the mask freehand? it looks so uniform in width.

    MP,

    Yes it's freehand cut in liquid masking with an Xacto knife. I was tutored in the style this way:

    1 draw your design
    2 cut your first line of the design
    3 wipe off the marker lines of the design
    4 eyeball the width of the pinstripe you want, and just cut a second parallel line next to the first.

    after a few tries it gets easier to keep the gap even, and the lines straight. you just have to find a method that works for you and practice it until you are comfortable doing it. The lines are never perfect when you freehand cut, so just avoiding major flaws should be the goal at first.

    For perfect stripes, you can use vinyl masking and have two lines drawn on it before you stick it inside the body, or precut them and use transfer tape to move the entire mask into the shell. I find that method too much hassle for RC painting.

    A local racer wanted a quick practice body painted for his Mugen.

    Masking tape and 2 hours....not bad for free (favor).
