Marbled Candy Paintwork
First and foremost we and the customer completely adored this paintwork! There was quite a few processes involved however to get it to its current state.
To start with, everything was painted in our fine pewter pearl to provide a solid base. Before doing this we had masked off the side of the tanks and mudguards so we had room to put the black ground coat on. Next up was the black ground coat on the tops which again was masked off for the fine line work also on this.
Then the fun bit came, we applied our silver water based marble paint and worked with cling film, patiently stippling until we got to the perfect marble. After a few hours baking in the booth, our candy autumn red was applied to give that deep sexy red this tank has.
The next morning after it had dried we applied our “just like glass” clear to make sure there was an ultra smooth, line free finish.
