The initial stages of this painting seemed promising!
as you can see my initial progress seemed well a nice solid pink has been laid and a fair coat has been applied. The problem was I had done it upside down!!
The cleats that I welded onto the frame were on the bottom which obviously wouldn’t be suitable!
Furthermore I also had the problem of a thick layer being clumped I had propped up over night hoping it would of realigned and spread and leveled itself although it didn’t.
The finished article well the face was something I could live with even though it was also speckled with dust and crap in the air!
I began my quest to find a suitable place to produce the next one! I decided the spray booth may be good I could use extraction fans to keep out the crud!
While it did a bit of a better job and keeping stuff off the surface it was only marginal the other kick in the nuts was that the space was so cramped that I couldn’t easily apply the paint so I had to spread to the best I could… it wasn’t good.
Both times it had shown signs of poor application and setting and also I wasn’t happy to publish these they were no good. It was time to destroy and go back to the drawing board!
Removing using white spirits and a plastic tool.
Interesting effects the white sprite solvent produces its the same as wrinkling although I could control its effect.
I looked for some clues to what was causing problems! It was the ambitious scale of the product I was producing! If it’s so big I cannot so easily control the effects that are against me, furthermore time was not on my side! I looked to then produce a stripe… there’s less and it’s a design I am confident with. My problem is I cannot bare to unwittingly commit the centre of attention to a passive colour the central stripe demands contrast!
Still fumbling with the ideas of colours red/ white I drew up the lines I wanted to reduce the painted surface area from my initial sizes it didn’t quite look right… accidentally I made two lines… perfect it’s not central and it’s still bold lets do these bad boys in pink!
