Is airbrushing worse or better? lol Any suggestions would be welcome.
BTW this is a Wallpaper of the Transformer 2 Autobots Logo
If your going with this one then buy Duplicolor Yellow and brown
first cut out your pattern and then spray yellow and then with a tooth pic cut the little scratches in the face that are there and then spray a really fast and lite coat of brown over the yellow maybe once and or twice but dont cover your yellow too much.
If you are going for the last one it will be the easiest. First copy this into a paint program and make it the size you want. Then cut all the black part away use some tape on the back of the paper to put it where you want on the case. Then Spray with White... Really lite coats with Auto duplicolor paint or air brush. If you are using the can remember to test the spray pattern on a dark material so you can see if it bubbles on you. White is really hard to spray and is better air brushed but it you can do it with duplicolor can automotive spray paint from the autoparts store. Get White purple blue and black.
Sequence best if airbrushed but can will work too.
try it once on a piece of card board first to get you pattern right and then take a deep breath and spray the case. Go with quick and thin strokes. and don't get into a hurry. I love the second one but you would have to do some really artistic airbrusing for that one. The first one is easy too. Same procedure.Edited by Enigma8750 - 10/8/09 at 4:26pm
