Flog the Blog

If you're following this blog you may have noticed I'm not posting that often anymore.
That's because I'm over on Facebook most of the time.
If you're still interested in all things Kustom, search for Kustombart on FB.

Swedish Erotica

First testdrive on a beautiful evening. Burned fossil fuels, scared pedestrians. A good time was had by all.

Acrylic Mojo

It's been awhile since I have painted anything on paper, using acrylic paint. It took me some time to get re-aquainted with the materials but I like the result.

Crazy Frank Pearl Cobbweb, the final throws

After the cobbweb effect was sprayed on, I layed down 10 layers of clear, last week.
Then I sanded the fender and rougly taped off some panels. Then I sprayed black and some more clear. The next day, I sanded down the fender and the surface was finally smooth, so it was time for some silver leaf.

I wanted to match the sportster tank I did earlier so I took some measurements and used them to accurately tape off the panels.
After laying down the tape, I first sprayed a dark fade with the airbrush.
Then some omre taping and silver leaf.
Now I have to do some touch up and then the final layers of clear. Tune in next time for more Special Paint adventures!

The circle of life

I painted this sportster tank a few years ago to try out the cobbweb effect. It turned out pretty sweet and I later sold the tank to Rob to dress up the Ledsled Customs showroom. Rob sold it to some guy who was building a bike but the guy decided it didn't fit his ideas.

Then friend Niels bought it and now it's back with me. Along it's travels, it has made a new friend; a Crazy Frank fender.

Niels wants to use these for his new project and has asked me to match the paint of the fender to the tank. I'll have to try to recreate the green, using a pearl white base with mint green Kandy. But first, it's time for sanding, filling and primering.

Stay tuned for more.

Bagger Pinstripes

Last saturday Mr. Martin came by the Kustom Korner to pinstripe Rob's bagger. He did a good job laying down some classic lines. A subtle job that suits the style of the bike very well.

Chairman of the bored.

Crazy ideas enter my head when I'm bored. And I have a great big number of helmets I can just pick up from the Kustom Korner. I also have a glue gun...
Disco Fever!
