Default crowd pleazer w/ WOOLY BOOGERS

hung out at the hobby shop yesterday afternoon. me and the owner got to talking about painting. went though his portfolio (he does custom work on 1:1 show cars, on the side) and noticed a really unique pattern which ive never seen before. i asked him about it and all he said was "ohh yeah ! wooly boogers ! mix the 70's an airbrush and some hash and that's what i ended up with." he then took me into his workshop and showed me how to do the effect.
friends were out of town for the weekend so i decided to pick up a case of new castle and paint another body. i now present my "wooly boogered" crowd pleazer













still gotta take some pics of it mounted. and some well placed decals should cover up some of the spots where the paint bled

Nice paint work. I like the green and that's a cool effect you used.

Default Seen that effect before ...

Sea anomies, those things you find in rock pools that suck your finger, lol.
Had it happen to me quite a few times when I did a custom airbrushing course.

Never thought of using it as an "effect", it was usually a fault with the airbrush (needed the tip or nossal (sp?) or needle to be cleaned).

I've also had it happen (when I didn't want it to), if paints were incompatible.

What's the trick, thinned paint sprayed with a little too much pressure in one spot?

Looks like a drop of thinned paint blown with some air.

close

1:3 paint to thinner.
i actually sprayed it a fairly low psi to be able to control the size of the "boogers"
i still need to experiment w/ it a little more to get the size a little more consistant. i also need to figure out a way to spray it w/o getting an outline where the masks were layed out.

haha cool! i used the same trick to make paint ball splats when i did a logo for a buisness on there garages

to eliminate that line you'll need to elimnate the edge that catches the paint.... thats gonna be extremely difficult with out either really whatching your bleed lines or just elminiating the mask all together there is a method called back taping wear you turn the tap back onto its self creating a rolled edge. but you still may get an outline.

the artist in my says leave the little black outline and let it flow all the way around like a fine frame for your graphics.

i smiled when i saw this body cause i knew the effect just never seen someone use it that well! great job!
