The Big Reveal

So, a few posts back we showed you just a flaked green eye, well now we're finished and can show u a bit of the process and finally the finished project. We repaired and painted this statue of liberty for James Hetfild--maybe you've heard of his band--metallica : ))) We did the paint prep work so Dirty Donny could do his custom styles on the Liberty.
She came to us a little banged up from shipment, but we got her patched up and ready for a new life..

first the gold metal flake

then comes the green candy

Dirty Donny airbrushed the shading and then painted the details with his signature style. Turned out killer! Check out more pics on Donnys blog

metal out of your mind

Been doing a ton of metalflakin' round the shop these days. We did these cats for our neighbor, Rusty the carpenter. They're actually made out of metal and were painted to look like wood. We sanded that off primered them.

first coat of gold..

now the gold flake

we'll candy them tomorrow and post the finished project.

A super special project for Frank Kozik. This bunny's getting the special flake and candy treatment and will make its way to an art show. We'll have the surprise finished color for y'all tomorrow..stay tuned.......
