AMZ swirl paint job

I discovered that it takes at least some minimal amount of artistic talent to use this method… which makes me feel inadequate. Hopefully I will improve with practice.

I first sprayed the box with a coat of Duplicolor etching primer to give a good foundation for the paint. Let it dry thoroughly.

I did not thin the paint as much as Andy suggested and used the end of a craft stick (like a thin popsicle stick) to push the paint around.

I used hot glue to make the stand on which the pedal parts are resting. One craft stick on edge glued to a second wooden stick flat as a base.

I think a small stiff paint brush might be useful with this technique.

Have you tried the dipping in a bucket of swirled oil paint like the video Mark found:


Just like the Jem!

I think it looks cool as hell. I’d be proud to have that on my board. I wish you tell me specifically how you did it. That’s almost exactly the look I’m going for. Except I want eyebone hurtin’ psychedelic hell colors.

so how’d you do it? what kind of paint?

Details, man, details!
