      Thanks misfit, I appreciate it. Just study shading and the effect of light source, after that, it's all a lot easier. If you have any questions, just ask.

      Really like your work. Hope I can get even half as good.

      The skull idea would probably work, but at $40-$50 each for skulls, the end cost would be pretty high. After paint, primer and clear plus your hours, you'd need to ask close to $100 dollars just to recoup your investment. I have a few different ones sitting around that I plan to do some native american type work on, but again, if I want to sell them...I'm going to need quite a bit of money from them to turn a profit.

      i like skulls, i had an ideal that might make some money, take a skull, put a primer on it , paint it with a metallic or candy paint, and put a thick clearcoat on it, i think that would look pretty cool, especially as an emblem on car or bike

      Hey worldofglasscraft, I just used a heat gun to set the paint. I used Wicked Detail.

      The bag is kind of like canvas, just a thick cloth. I painted a friends hat over a year ago with blue true fire and didn't prep it or heat set it and it's still the same as when I did it. He wears it all the time. You can get away with a hair dryer, if you don't have an industrial heat gun, it's not ideal, but it has worked for me on a couple of things without issue.

      Hi, I checked out your vids on you tube, posted some comments :-) What prep is required for that gig bag please, was it a plasticy type bag or leather?
