    Hi

    This is a picture of a motorcycle side panel ABS or similar, one of the previous owners added a sweet strip along the bottom edge, as well as other embelishments on the bike. Now i'm used to spraying with can or spray gun, solid colours, so my question is obviously how did he do this and what paints did he use. Any help would be grtefully accepted.

    Regards

    I’m no expert but it looks like he laid silver aluminium base first and then just overlaid and aqua blue and red candy. A piece of torn paper will give you the organic edge to the colours

    Trialling on Piece of equal sized paper will tell you if you’re on the right track
