Caparison's "frozen Sky" Finish

Recommended Posts

Any idea how they do it?


It looks like some sort of finish done with a sponge maybe? It could also be a graphic, but that would be very difficult since the TAT/TAT II are both arched top with necks in the same finish.

I did a quick search on google and on here but I couldn't find any info.

Its not marbelizer. Its plain old solid colour paint, sprayed with very low pressure, and a large paint flow, using a big needle and nozzle. Use less thinners/reducer (none?) than usual. Hold the gun further back than normal. Practice. You only get one chance to get it right, and its hard to do.

I know CMT (country music televison) is evil.

But Rhino the self proclaimed paint spam on Trick My Truck, shows lots of cool techniques on there. Including on a recent paint job this one. It's worth watching if you want to see a lot of cool tips and tricks he tries to work them in every episode. In fact of all the car rebuild shows you probably see more from him in a 1/2 hour than on most shows in a season.
