Learn to pinstripe, where to look, books? Tools?

Can anyone recomend some good pinstriping how to books? My wife is a bit of an artist, and I am trying to get here into pinstriping, so she can do something related to cars. Give her something to do at shows etc. Side my car is all primer now waiting to be stripped so she has a huge practice canvas.

Looking for some starting equipment and learnign stuff. Any suggestiosn apreciated.

Ideas?

WEll why do you not get her an airbrush set for her birthday stocking..that and look at eastwood for some pin striping brushes..Air brush and pin strip kinda go together and she can be doing her thing in that area..

She could be doing all kinds of stuff with that..

Fic her up with some studio space and let her go at it..Most of the ones who do that sort of thing just went at it and learned as they went...Least the ones I have met..

Any book store will have literature in the automotive dept.
Check out some airbrush site's as the 2 seem to follow along the same line.

Coast Airbrush & Dixie Art both have a ton of "How To" vid's as well as supply's.

Mack is the brush and depending on your budget, has the best brush's avil.
The Excalibur is the top line brush,Yeah it's expensive,but after you've struggled with the cheap one's and break down and get one,you'll be kicking yourself for not getting one sooner.

I get mine locally from my paint jobber.One Shot and HOK striping enamel are the most popular paints. Application depends on the job. Most are done afterward or over an existing paint job. It's getting more common now to incorporate it with the graphic under the final clear coat. Depending on which will determine how the paint is used. The tech sheet or usually dir. on the can will advise you of the procedure for whichever way you do it.

I just started learning recently as well. I'm hoping to be able to teach my daughter as well. Check out www.letterheads.com more of a sign makers site but lots of useful info on their bullboard. Also, look at the how-to's on www.psychoarts.com and look at the galleries on www.pinheadlounge.com too. lots of friendly people and everyone is learning. Have fun!

Thanks for the replies. We went to a car show up in Buffalo Saturday night and they had the North East pinstripe convention going on there also. She took a lot of time watching them go, but I couldn't get her to talk to any of the folks there. She was a little intimidated by the quality of work there. She does seem interested though.

However it looks like I'll be buying the stuff to get here started. I'm willing to invest a little to get her more interested in the car show scene.

Hey, I was just cruising through one of the other threads and popped into a site for a old style pinstriper Tommy "The Itch" Otis. He offers a video on pinstriping. Go to www.tommyitchotis.com, kill the annoying music with the provided icon and click into "Visit Our New Store" and click on the pinstriping video. It may be worth checking out, since she really doesn't want to talk to people, which is too bad because because most graphic and pinstripe artists I talk to love talking about their work. Good Luck!
