    A former student of mine runs a paint shop. A customer of his would like to have a picture of this grandfather on the bike he is currently restoring.
    I should do that now. Normally I start on a white background so I will submit first white. That would rather be a task for @Tuffnutz?

    am I correct that you have a black background and need to paint a monochrome portrait ? if so I would lay down a solid white base color first make sure it is cured and then do the portrait

    That's the plan! I think I use Wicked for the white base that is resistant.

    Looking great already Micha. It also looks like you had more luck with Wicked White than me lol. I struggled to get it to flow and found the Illustration White much better, but I guess that could have been my bottle causing issues.

    Next step is some typography, his name and birthday. The customer wants the effect of an old picture, I die it with some steelwool.[​IMG]

    Today I finished this project. I'm happy with the outcome. I cleared the piece with Glasurit 923-666, I love this clear.
    Nice little job.[​IMG][​IMG]

    In my opinion the Wicked's flown much better then the Illustrations. After drying the coat is very hard and resitent.
