Whats up guys. This is a thread on how to lay out, and spray kandy patterns on your whips. I wanted to do this thread to help out some of you. I have been getting alot of questions lately, as I am sure some of the other painters in here are too.. Hopefully this thread will answer some of your questions and help you kill the paint game!!
First you wanna prep your body (sand, prime, wet sand) to get all of the imperfections out, and give your paint a good clean surface to grip. After the body is ready you want to lay out a nice basecoat for the kandy. In this case I am using Duplicolor Silver Metal Specks. This is a great base to use because it is very user friendly and comes in a spray can.
After your basecoat is dry, it is time to start laying out tape. Take 2 bobby blades and tape them together. The closer the tips of the blades are together the thinner your tape strips will be. Tahe a piece of 2 inch masting that is about 1 foot long and stick it down to your cutting mat and cut your tape strips from that.
Start with one section and go from there.
