I HAVE ALL OF THE PAINT CODES FOR THE CUSTOM COLORS. I CAN PROVIDE THEM TO YOU IF YOU WANT!

 

 

THREE Days to apply THREE coats of the BASE COLOR

June 19th, 20th, & 21st

 

 

Note: Custom Color Premium Paint. Has epoxy in it and resists scratching and can be washed.

 

Day 7

June 22nd

 

 

Note: Premask on stencil insures that the stencil is applied with perfect alignment everytime.

Crystal is working out some air pockets with a plastic squeegee

Time for Jeff to Start Painting. I found a great "micro" roller that is made specifically for smooth

surfaces. It works fantastic and the end result looks like it was sprayed.

Side one is done and looks FANTASTIC!.. Let's do the rest of the game

Look how CRISP the edges are! Absolutely no Bleed through with this paint mask!

Another Close Up!

Opposite Side. This Premium Paint Mask "Absorbs" the paint and does not leak or bleed through!

Go ahead an spread the paint on. THIS PAINT MASK WILL NOT RUN OR BLEED! Here's the proof!

Side #2 is done! It looks FANTASTIC. Crisp sharp edges. Spot On!

One last shot of other side!

Front Red Stencil!

Once I put a nice coat down, I roll over it several times to "smooth" it out

Front is done! Looks Great!

 

Day 8

June 23rd

 

 

Note: Premask on stencil insures that the stencil is applied with perfect alignment everytime.

Crystal is working out some minor air bubbles with the plastic squeegee

Apply some painter's tape around stencil in case you get sloppy with the roller  ;-)

Once Stencil is in place, remove transfer tape and start painting!!!!

I put a pretty thick coat of white then rolled over it several times to "smooth" the coat.

CABINET IS NOW DONE!!!

 

Day 9

June 24th

Note: After paint is removed, I used 200 grit sandpaper to prepare surface for painting

A lot of patience is required for this phase. All of the paint will come off. It just takes time!

Top is completely stripped of paint!

Head is repaired, sanded, and ready for the base color! ( Left Side )
