HEy guys I appreciate that ya dig my first attempt on my Buddies RAT harley,
but that a pretty shiotty piece, and it was still a totalt to do.
So and remember i have been pushin' brushes for alot of years, just not much srtippin'
BUt ya gotyta want to do it.
and then just chill down and stripe anythuing ya kan find,
and you will be fair.
I was strippin' when i was 14 yerars old, but just thought I sucked at it,
then recently i tpp was at a show and saw a dude , layin' down lines , and he was makin' some good bucks! well after closer inspection of his stuf I thought ,
GEEEWIZZEE FAT and went home and dug out my brushes again and had at it.
now i'm the local stripperand i can afford coffee too.
so you kids just go play in yer garage , and turn off that bdamned TV and you'll be famous some day...
FAT freddy has said it.

I've seen the striping that Phoenix does before, she's rather good. Having only done a little so far I'm not going to show you all just yet.
I've spent the last 20 years as a graphic artist using both ink, paint, brushes and of course a macintosh, and the best advice for a would be striper is to 'look where you are going'. Having started pulling a line, look beyond the brush to where you intend to finish. That helps with getting your line where you want it. Ask any motorcyclist, look for the point you wish to arrive at, and you'll get there!

That's a nice design, open and clean.

Here's my first attempt, I just sold my car so turned to my cycle helmet instead.



It's only about 53F here but I still had trouble with the paint. It seemed thin, so as I was hovering over the start point, I dripped! Still, this is of course the first of many - lots of practice to come!

tools of the trade....

I bought a bugaler (sp?) pinstriping tool....its a tube with a wheel on one end....you fill it with about a 1/4 ounce of one shot paint and draw away....I paid about $100 for the whole kit with special guides to keep spacing to edges right and more....I practice with testors model paint on a book of notebook paper or art book...After a evening of playing you will feel like a pinstriping god....most of all the steady hand is not as important and the wheels always put down a steady width line. at the end of a run if you angle the wheel up on its side you can taper off the line to a skinny...Its the perfect tool for outlining flames...I just laid out my first flame job on a 28' Chevy pickup a few weeks ago and its sweet looking now...
A local pinstriper kept putting this guy off and he really wanted to get his flames laid out....Well I do chemical sales and stopped by this shop that was going to spray them once they were laid out...I said "I can draw flames, I do it all the time on paper" He said "Do it" so I used a china pencil and laid out the flames, The painter masked it and then another pro-pinstriper outlined them in lime green....they look killer now and the Pro guy said I did a awesome job for my first layout on a actual car. The pickup was at a show memorial weekend and tons of people loved the flame job...I may get into this alot more now since I enjoyed it so much.

Very nice work....all around.......

I've been contemplating getting into this as I've been painting and doing graphics for a long time. I've drawn since I was back in my pre-teen years and I'm 50 now. I started applying the paint & graphics work on sportbikes mainly, back in the early 90's.

Many of the vinyl graphics were very good, but they kind of looked "made", or prefabricated, so I decided to start applying more paint work.
The hand painted pin striping would be a great extension in being able to accent much of the other work, so I thought I'd start in.
I love my airbrush, but a good pinstriping outline is hard to beat.

Again nice work...........

Bob

Great to see so many other talented artist out there and thats whats great about art is everybody style is so different and to me thats what is cool.
As for the viyl graphics i specialize in custom vinyl graphics and digital printed graphics, and have for many years done the airbrushing and quil brushing, but have to tell yeah virtually everything in paint we can replcate in vinyl form Design wise and even more! from imagines to texuring.
I knwo theres alot of old school painters out there that are intimidated by the computers like us all at first but what a great tool such as your brush to make amazing sign work and custom graphics.

This is an awesome thread going here... I've been trying to get into striping, but I find that I have a lot of trouble pulling long lines. Maybe you pro's could answer a question for me. How much do I need to load the brush? I've seen some people like VonDutch load it clear to the wood. Also, seen them pull the extra off with there hands. How much paint should I take off? Any help is appreciated... I'm aiming to get a job with a bike company in my home state sooner or later, and this is one thing I want to master before hand.

Pinstriping is not dying much, if at all. It's just gone the way of "real" sign work.....being replaced by vinyl in a lot of places. The vinyl merchants can purchase a CD with pinstriping patterns, hit a button, and cut 'em out.

It takes work to learn to pinstripe, and many "want it now". I've been doing sign work and striping for over 30 years, and still enjoy every day at work. It's fulfilling to see a few drops of paint come to life on a vehicle or just on a panel.

I'll dig thru some pictures and see if I can post some of them. If you've got an interest, go for it. It doesn't cost as much as a video game to get started. It just takes practice, practice, practice. You can buy an old fender or door skin from a junk yard; or just a piece of plexiglass. Stripe a design; wipe it off with thinner; and do something else. Above all else....have fun.
