Hi all... This is first shot at a tiki chair. I wanted to make something that would look good next to the tiki bar. Let me know what you think

Yes....I air brushed it and also did some hand painting for the detail work. I saw the chairs on the margaritaville site and I was not impressed with the art work or the $400 price tag so I figured I try my own design.

neat chair! two things I learned when airbrushing:
a)friskit is evil
b)wear a face mask or you will have technicolor snot.

Thanks for the feedback. I've been airbrushing for 20 years. I use a Paasche VL3. I know there are better airbrushes out there but pound for pound nothing holds up like a Paasche VL. I've been using Createx paints for about 15 years. I swear by them. I never use a frisket, it all free hand with the exception of a torn piece of cardboard here and there. After the paint job is done, I coat it with five coats of clear. I'll try and post some of my other works shortly. Johnny Mac
