low budget/ no budget

While making some minor changes on the bike I thought it was fun to give my axed tank a little make over. With some leftover rattlecans, masking tape and almost no time I made this..
Wat do you need;
1- gastank
3-masking tape

I wanted to start with a gold base, but unfortunately the can was almost empty already.
The pic doesn't show how bad it looks. But it's just a base for the striping tape so.... never mind. It's meant as a joke anyway!

With the base on it you can go berserk with the masking tape.
No clue what I was doing!

I also mask the inside from the banners.

Then I use the red I once used for a rear wheel. After removing the white tape this is the result.
Mmmmm, not so bad. The blue tape is stil on, masking the gold.

Then I mask the red.
Now things are going to fast.
I spray the banners blue and do some shadow with the airbrush.
Clearcoat on it and before I have time to make a picture I've got to go to a party.
No time to dry the paint or do a test ride with my "new" KH fork.
But the result isn't that bad at all.
More later!!

Hé Sikster, je verrast me weer jongen. Ziet er zeer goed uit. Je kunt zeker de strijd aan met Martin.
