I'm not sure if this is the right board to post about this, but I thought it'd be nice to have a thread about DIY automotive painting techniques.
Pic related isn't my vehicle, just one that was painted with the technique I'm about to describe, by the guy I learned this from.
Say you have an old vehicle you want to bring back to life, and you want a type of paint that will look good and be resistant without needing an expert executing the job. Alkyd enamel comes to your help. It was the typical automotive paint until acrylic enamel became popular. It's desirable because it can last a long time and can produce professional results with ease.
A good mix is rustoleum, mineral spirits, penetrol/flood and enamel hardener, which is optional but makes the paint very strong and chip resistant.
You can get the first three in home improvement stores such as Lowe's and the enamel hardener can be found in Tractor Supply (I love them for gym stuff too, you can get rubber pads for much cheaper than in other places) or other sites online.
When doing alkyd painting, it's desirable to use a high volume low pressure gun. They can be bought for cheap at places like Harbor Freight and even the cheapest ones give good results. You want many light to medium coats as opposed to a heavy one and you want the paint to stay wet as long as possible, this way it flows for a smooth glossy finish. Always paint in the lowest temperatures you can and not under direct sun.

Again, it's all hypothetical because it's not my Jeep lol.
I made the thread more as a discussion of techniques in case someone happened to have some use for some pointers, to spread the word. Too often I see people do poor rattle can jobs without it being any cheaper for them because of not knowing better. An HVLP gun on Harbor Freight is $30. You also need an air compressor which you may already have or you may even rent one if pinching pennies (or buy one for about $120). A quart of Penetrol at Lowe's is $10. Rustoleum is like $9 a quart. Mineral spirits about $8. Enamel hardener $18 but you don't need a lot of it.
Meanwhile the spray cans are like $10 each or $30 each if auto specialty paint and you need tons of them. With this, maybe 5 gallons of paint to cover an entire vehicle. Cheaper and the results not only looks better but last longer.


>Again, it's all hypothetical because it's not my Jeep lol.
lmao how do I keep doing this


>spray cans are like $10 each or $30 each if auto specialty paint
Are there really just car paint spray cans? I always assumed that those spray jobs, car hood art specifically, was done with some sort of air brush. I thought about using mine to fix up some scratches and rusty spots, but I just have one of those mini air brushes for War Hammer models and wasn't sure if it would be as effective


>Are there really just car paint spray cans?
Yes but the finish tends to be shitty and porous.
>I always assumed that those spray jobs, car hood art specifically, was done with some sort of air brush.
They usually are.
>I thought about using mine to fix up some scratches and rusty spots, but I just have one of those mini air brushes for War Hammer models and wasn't sure if it would be as effective
Fixing spots is tricky, ideally you want to refinish an entire "panel" (not literally, but you don't want to have new paint and old paint on the same visible surface). Of course, even that is preferable to rusty spots. But painting over rust is a bad idea too, unless it's a rust converter paint.


Also the small air brush could possibly work, but it'll be trickier than a proper HVLP gun, and you'd have to make sure it doesn't get clogged with the automotive paint.

How can he do such horrid racism? everyone knows chinks have big anime eyes


So do we just have to pretend Asians don't have squinty eyes now?
All cartooning is based on caricature, so at what point does caricature become racism?
Is caricature itself a problem?

Recently a friend's gardening handle broke, so I took it upon myself to make a new one. Came out pretty easily, just put a piece of a dowel on the lathe and carved down a handle. Drilled a hole in at the top for the shovel part to fit in and filled the rest up with wood glue. Feeling pretty proud of it so I figured I might share.

So what have you been fixing up?


wow, that's a neat setup


Thanks its my parent's shed


You look small.


I realize that's an odd non sequitur, just looking at your shadow and knee in relation to the objects around you.

What is an NTF exactly and why does it cost so much


NFT is Non fungible Token that runs on Blockchain. Think about it a copyright system, You tokenize your old artworks, photographs, video, gif, meme , collectable etc & then no one could counterfeit it. It runs on Ethereum blockchain. Tokenizing one of your artworks is called Minting.

Now this Minting requires a small amount of gas fee or transaction fee, There are other sites like Mintable which let you mint your artworks for free. After minting them you can put them on auction or sell it on a fix price. Some other sites like rariable will also give you a 10% commission for every future sale of your product, Mintable doesn't give you.

NFT exclusively runs on Ethereum & price of every listing gets decided on Ethereum. Right now 1 eth costs almost $2000. That's why this is so costly.

You can put your artwork either on Auction, Auction with a immediate buy & at fixed price like I did.


NFTs are ridiculous for a casual artist to consider using Ethereum. Ban I would use the Ravencoin blockchain to create an NFT, much cheaper, 5 to create, 500 to burn, ravencoin is currently at .20 of a dollar and runs on a bitcoin blockchain fork.

>A painting by Dutch master Vincent van Gogh was stolen in an overnight smash-and-grab raid on a museum that was closed to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, police and the museum said Monday.
>The value of the work, which was on loan from the Groninger Museum in the northern Dutch city of Groningen, was not immediately known. Van Gogh's paintings, when they rarely come up for sale, fetch millions at auction.

The world is ending, might as well get a nice painting to tie the room together before I die.

What would one do with a stolen painting anyways.

hello, when i animate walk cycles primary or anything that uses bipedal or arm it always end up limping and unbalanced or sliding…

what usually causes this and how do i avoid it? i ve considered just simulating it and then tracing it and even just get one feet right and the other feet just being a copy of the other but in different timing

is that okay? the second way feels very unnatural obviously and i havent even tried it out myself but then i dont know how to make straight ahead walking/cycles animation that is "correct/balanced enough" from the get go


why am i the anti spam
what did i do
this dumb


Never did animation, but my best advice is video record yourself doing the same motion and then animate yourself frame by frame to ensure the most natural look. I feel like when it comes to walking you have to account the legs carrying the weight of the body as well as the terrain and general motion of the walk cycle.

Do you have any examples? maybe sometimes it's just your own perception exacerbating the problems.

i think if you start a message and leave the tab open it'll think your spamming, my experience is just refresh the page and wait like, 5 seconds to fix it

>Henry Ranger was a New York painter known for his seascapes and marine scenes. He was a promnent Tonalist and founder of the Old Lyme Art Colony. This painting of the ocean with some meandering sailboats was clearly a tonal painting when it arrived, only the wrong tone. with years of surface grime and a heavily discolored varnish the painting had taken on a very yellow cast. As the varnish was removed a few interesting discoveries were made that complicated the conservation

I haven't made art in a few years and I have lost my skills basically. I want to get into art again, but is it worth it? I will have to start again from scratch. Should I take up another hobby?


In some ways it's like riding a bike, even if you forgot once you get back to it you'll get good at it much faster than someone who never did it.


>I want to get into art again, but is it worth it?
If you go into art without the idea of self-fulfilling your own tastes and ludic needs then you are fucked six days from sunday.
