Before investing in a custom paint job--whether you’re hiring a painter or doing the job yourself--turn to this book for a clear idea of what works and what doesn’t. Drawing on years of experience running her own custom painting shop, JoAnn Bortles reviews the full array of options for paints, graphics, and effects. In an easygoing manner, and with photographs to illustrate her points, she explains the tools and techniques that apply in various paint schemes and shows what might work especially well in certain situations and for particular vehicles.
From the Author
People always ask, where do custom painter get their ideas? Well most painters have a very extensive reference library of photos and ideas that are are constantly collecting. This book is the very best of my reference library. I started out with over 30,000 photos that Ihave been collecting for over 35 years. It took me months but I narrowed it down to about 774 photos of the very best custom painting pictures there are.
There are some very rare photos in the this book. Photos of unreal incredible paint you will not see anywhere else. If you are painting your car, truck or motorcycle, you will get so amny idea from this book. You'll see what colors and designs will work best for your hot rod or bike.
And if you aren't working on a custom project, you will still enjoy this book as you can sit back and take a journey through the very best in custom painting. Of my six books, this is without a doubt my favorite! I hope you enjoy it, in fact, I know you will.
