After intense session of masking, I finally got a chance to execute the final conceptual sketch for this project. A few more layers of Euro clear and this number will be ready to race.
The original color and the rust will be completely removed; we’ll be on a fresh start. We’ll take the classic Bristish Racing Green and removing the modern day metallic flakes and applying the euro clear with the satin base.
We have a frameset with a classic feel and modern twist detail treatments. We’ll have to decide which directions to take this frameset into – modern or pure classical. Time to go to the drawing board… Stay tuned!
Combining two opposing colors – Cannondale glacier blue and floral neon yellow, creating a hard mask between them, having the neon exposing the underlying blue while adding forward direction.
Finishing the final champion stripes and masking of this frameset; Next we’ll be adding a bit of gold artwork to the metallic green stripe after some prepping is done. More images coming soon of the gold detail treatments.
Two words – “HOT PINK!” This number is going to be so flashy on the race track mud won’t event want to touch it. The masking within the grey area will be exposed metal with a protective treatment and Euro clear to seal the deal.
The sun has finally came out and it’s time to get as many snap shots while it’s out. With the BrakeBreaker17 we got a chance to get some money shot with the final Icecream Effects and it looks amazing. The effects still show the metal heat treatments and the other metal surface scratches without covering the manufacturing details.
Creating a ‘Gentlemans Bike’ – look and feel with this Bianchi. We’ll be taking it down its prime (metal) and building the layers back with a gold based off white tone to complement the gold decals and detail treatments (that will be in gold too).
Although the concept sketch is on full color the actual ‘Link’ character will be black line work and the rest of kendama will be in full color. Hopefully there will be enough surface area to implement metallics greens, ice blue, and yellow tones.
We will be shifting this off tone gold and black carbon fork with a burst of hot neon pink and sun yellow fork to be scene on the race track. With part of the frame we will be exposing a portion of the down tube with raw steel with gloss clear set.
This San Jose Sharks inspired frame has similar traits like the San Francisco Giants themed frame. In the Icecream Shop we will be sealing the work and adding that nice wet look of this artwork.
This is a pretty straight forward project; we’ll be removing most of the decals with the exception of top tube, and applying x2 stages of Icecream Pearls. We still would like to keep the ‘heat treatment’ look on the lugs, and hieghten the overall look of them.
Focusing heavily on inspirations from Jackson Pollock and San Francisco Giants – this artist “Kyle” took a trip to the Icecream Shop to make sure that his art.design stay in tack. That’s why we are applying a nice durable clear coat to have this frameset heading in the right direction.
