  • "pimp my ride..." my 1st painting on a motorcycle
  • there's a dude called JP who pimped this great looking kawasaki. somehow he didn't like the eggshell yellow on the tank. so he came to me and asked me if i could paint something on it. something with a japanese touch.. 

    i mixed up some gray tones in my markers and started painting... 

    i hope to get some nice photographs of the whole bike soon. it look great assebled! this is one of the 1st projects i done that i'm happy with the result. hope to have more of them soon..

    you find some more informations about the used material at the end of the page..
    • i used some fine sandpaper to roughening the surface of the part i wanted to paint. 
    • i covered the rest of the tank with old newspapers and masking tape. 
    • i sprayed the base color  with a white montana gold spraycan.
    • i sketched my idea with a common pencil
    • i colored the tank using molotow all4one markers
    • sometimes i used a thin brush to to some details, always using the molotow colors
    • did the details with a thin black marker (molotow and uni posca)
    • gave the whole thing to a local paintshop (those who varnish cars) to cover it

    done... =)

    thank you for looking at this project..
