    I'm thinking of specializing in this brand of motorcycle. They are so much fun to pinstripe. This one has a shade shifting paint job from orange to deep red as you walk around it. Striping colors are silver metallic, charcoal metallic and black.

    I do this method on every job. I start out by painting totally freehand designs on a white aluminum panel with black paint. I make a couple different versions for each panel on the motorcycle. When it's dry, I lay pattern paper over it and trace a refined version where I'll usually edit the design by adding to it or removing parts from the original. Sometimes I'll combine parts from the second painted version to arrive at an original layout design for the striping. I set the voltage somewhat high on the Electro Pounce to get good large holes for the pattern transfer. I tend to use Kafka #3, Mack Belly #000, and Excalibur #000 brushes for most of what I do, but also have a Mack #0000 Old Dominican brush I really like a lot for any freehand additions after I've painted the parts using the pattern. Hope that info was clear and made sense.
