LEARN TO SPRAY HVLP!!!!!

okay, so i've noticed a lot of you want to paint your own stuff, but don't know how to do what needs to be done. don't know what materials you will need, yadda yadda yadda.

here's the deal.....i'm willing to do a "crash course" on how to paint. i'm still learning as well....with the change in chemicals and equipment these days....the learning process will never end. but what I CAN teach you....is the foundation for a good painting process.

If you are willing to learn, I am willing to show you the jedi ways. This will be for a sunday, probably after the MH BBQ day.

Time: 1-2pm and will last a few hours. I am only available to show people on a Sunday.

Location: at my shop

What to bring: wear something you don't care gets dirty or not. bring yourself.

as i have stated....my way is not the only way, it's just the way i get things done. use it as a foundation and find your own methods.

When i get a good list of people, i'll pick an exact day. This is a crash course, so don't expect to learn every nook and cranny.

please post if you are interested.

JULY 8TH ANYONE? NOT A SOLID DATE...JUST SEEING WHAT EVERYBODY THINKS.

start the roll call,

1.
2.
3.
keep adding yourself

yeah, i'll need a donor. since BC is first to ask, we can do yours. just pay for the materials i use, and you'll get my labor for free.

i have a mixing bank here at the shop....the brand of paint it mixes is azko nobel, they make sikkens and lesonal. it's a european paint. so any color you want to mix, and i'll charge you at my cost.

as long as there's no major damage to your parts, you have 1st choice on getting yours done.

sounds like a bet. i figured so many people had so many questions about paint, i would just do a quick crash course so they know the foundation of the paint process. we'll work out a sunday we can both do. i'll get with you on PM's in a week Tom.

houseofpain, need someone with some Airbrushes to stop by for some small effect's? I'm getting my hand back in after many years and can help with some simple stuff. I'm looking for a good lesson in laying clear. Got any Candy's in that mixing bank? I can do some fun stuff with candy's.

When we get a date, I'll post up materials that the participants need to bring with them to repair their stuff.

Maybe we can do a dual "class" where they rotate from paint station to repair station, and vice versa.

I'll see if I can get a new plastic welder too- mine sux.
cool...they can jump back and forth instead of sitting around doing nothing when the paint goes through flash time (which means, sit around and do til the next coat is applied)

no candy's in the mixing bank. i usually order house of kolor's candy paint.
mixing bank does solids, metallics, and pearls....candies, flakes, neons, and all that other good stuff is special order from the paint supplier.

you can come watch me lay down some clears....but as for the airbrushing goes....i think we'll just stick to fiberglass repairing, and basic spraying right now. it'll be a lot of info to soak up as it is...airbrushing will get these people going crazy.
