My caddy's tangelo orange flake, and tangerine candy...now I wanted to get my boy to do some airbrushin. I haven't candied the car yet so if he airburshed and I candied over it what would happen. So you know how people do art but it's more like ghost art is that how it would turn out if he just used some light oranges and shit...I ain't a painter or nothin but just wanted to know? :dunno:

if your boy is airbrushing over your base, then you candy orange over the murals, the murals will get a orange tint, that is a way alot of people do ghost murals.
just imagine putting on orange sunshades, thats how the murals will look with the candy coat over it. most people airbrush in just balck and white then candy over it (like the toilet bowl cover i did).i hope that helps you.

Man can I order one of those seats.......anyhow the cars already flaked but I haven't candied yet...so you think I'll get the same effect by just airbrushin over the flake? It's already been knocked down...what if I shot a few coats a candy over the flake, he airbrushes, then candy again then clear..think that'll work?

** I bought a toilet seat about a year ago & never got around to painting it ..
What base color you use on that & did you highlight the cheek bone & hands with the white .. or is the whole seat white to start out with & you just added black with the airbrush????

** A good question with well placed wording... I paint as well but , others would get some needed info about how you did it .. Looks good - You do alot of "realism" airbrushing??? BOB_T

the toilet bowl seat is based in silver,
then i airbrushed the black and white
then candied, then cleared.

and yeah, i do quite a bit of realistic airbrushing.

you can also use your basecoat paint, mix a lighter version (probably using a white tint) and darker version (using a black tint) and airbrush with those colors.
