    Looks good. What sort of technique or trickery did you use to get that effect on the paint? I might have to try in in emerald....

    Yeah Gibo is on to it still a lot of trial and error first full stock ive done this one was a blaze blue base coat with black,gray and white swirl lots of clips on you tube but this whole thing was done with spray cans.How long will it last who knows but looks good I reckon.

    Didn't go to out there with colours on this one as its up for sale once back together but have done a few different colours on a cut up stock will post pics tonight

    I think you can get some hard out paint for stocks that doesn't wear as easily. Not sure of the brand sorry.

    Cant remember year but its a chevy nova pro street that I never finished lol but that one is just a primer gray base with a gloss black swirl the black has added a slight metallic look to the gray I like it.

    Yeah man. After watching a few vids it looks like the paint application onto the water and the dipping process look like the trick to getting a mean look. Practise makes perfect aye

    Definitely been a trail and error sort of thing but is pretty easy I have found that different colours react defiantly in the water most of the Americans are using oil paints but oh well the spray paint works and am happy with results so far. The bit I like is you could do 100 stocks but no 2 would be the same

    I ended up importing Marble paint from Germany via Canada for these bad boys.

    There was a 2 can paint system we used to use at work and gave the marble/granite look. Can't remember the name but you painted the base coat then sprayed a clear coat. This is cool idea and a shit load cheaper than those packs I bet.

    You inspired me to have a play
    Before

    After

    Didn't try the dip was going for a smokey carbon fibre type buzz turned out OK needs a light sand and a Matt clear coat cause its way to Shiney.
