This ladies beach cruiser was completely new when I got my hands on it. The client wanted it painted up like it was custom made in the 50’s. All the techniques was out of the toolbox. Airbrush, Pinstriping, and Lettering, not to mention a lot of sanding and scuffing.
Making stuff look old is not as easy as you might think. I prefer to get the subject clean as a whistle if it’s new. Or just as it was if it’s already a bit old. That way I can produce the best result.
