here a little question for the OG's builders, back in the days (1992 or some where around there) i remember going to the boys and girls club in Cali and there was a older gentleman there and he like's building exact replicas of famous model he was working on loco 64 that day “I think “ he was sharing some secretes with us youngsters about how he made his murals, homeboy after he painted the model and dried he wet sand the model so it would not shine the homeboy got some color pencils and got down with some art skills and clear coat it look like the real thing,
has any one done this technique before or even hear of it?

I was to impressed with his other models that i did not pay a whole lot of attention that day.

I don't know with murals...I respect the work that is put into the little paintings and they should get lot's of extra points for it but personaly I should go for the best look...take a nice picture print it in high quality style on decal paper and make it perfect with the decalmaster stuff to let it blend with the rest.
But that's not what this about.... ;)

Man that sounds like one cool technique. one thing I learned studying art in college though, always test your shit to make sure its compatable. You wouldn't want to go to all that trouble and have the clear wash away your artwork. I think you should do up one on an old hood or soemthing and show us what you get. I have some old body parts, pm me with your address and i can send you something to test on

Color pencils and markers should work fine as long as the clear doesn't have a chemical reaction. Thanks for the info I might try somthing with that old school technique. I always like it when people think out of the box.

I've never heard of using pencils, but I know that if you use Gel Pens (know what I am talkin about?) They have a somewhat fine point to them...but anyways they have them in just about every color thinkable. I know this guy who did a 64 Imp. he used a kandy red base and painted some tight patterns on it with Gel Pens, I've also seen murals done in them as well.
