Hey their L0WL1FE,

Yep, the trick is legit, and a pretty cool effect once you get a bit of practice so you can get a better feel for how it works effectively. Only downside in this case specifically is that I usually am not a huge fan of working with spray cans as the tips are just not worth much for getting a very even flow, or smooth spray pattern which can ruin a good paint job.

I use do effects like this by air brush and works much better, not all that hard, and you can pull off a way better looking job. Here is a Link to a thread I posted a while back demonstrating a few cool air brush effects with this effect is included in the second vid.

Air Brush Tricks and Effects

If you ever decided to try to pull of something like this, please remember to do the right prep work, and know which type of material your working with as their are I believe 5 different types of plastics used in the PT's interior, all having different needs for prep and painting.

Here is an example in a write up I did on prepping and painting the center bezel in a PT to give you a good idea of how to do it, make it last, and look good.

Guide to Spray Paint your Center Dash Bezel

Anyways, if you ever have any questions on custom paint work, detailing, and general cosmetics both in and out, please feel free to look me up anytime, and I would be more than happy to try to help wherever I can.

Go easy, and I'll catch ya later.

Maybe it's just me, but the item painted looks as if it were a piece of the Titanic. But I have a replica of Gimli's axe, hanging on my wall. The effect might look pretty good on it ....

Hey their mdfrodolives,

You could give her a good shot, and see what happens. Its really not too hard once you have done it a couple of times to get a good feel for what works, and what doesn't. That's pretty much how I learned to do custom paint, and air brush was through good old trial and error till I got it right. Just make extra sure you do your learning on old scrap, or things that you wouldn't be as much concerned about should something go horribly wrong on.

If you should give her a try, please be sure to post up a few pics.

Candyman, I was just teasing the author of the water-paint concept. It actually looked kinda neat. Besides, whether I liked it or not, if artists didn't try something new, from time to time, we'd still be painting animals on cave walls and praying for the ice to melt ....
