After painting the skulls I applyed intercoat clear to protect the art work so I could scuff the paint the next day to allow for proper adhesion seeing how this project took more then a day to finish. The next step was to draw the rips, mask the skulls and paint the riped areas. I used Orian Silver to paint the rips.
This is a hood that I did last spring for a customer.
I started by wet sanding the hood down with 500 grit paper and then I mask the hood leaving the area where the skulls will be open. I based the hood where the skulls will be white. I used one of Craig Frasers Wrath of Skull Master stencils to paint the skulls. I used the stencil to get the basic shape of the skull that I wanted. When using a stencil, you only want to spray a light coat of color down to get a basic pattern, then you can detail the skulls freehand.
