Here is one of my twin grandsons dresser for his bedroom that I’ve been working on for over a month now.
This dresser is wood and yes, I did use automotive paint on this. I have actually shot step by step videos all the way through the entire process and I will give you the access link to those at the end of this blog post.
It all starts with sanding the wood and cleaning it nicely, then using a high end epoxy primer for a very good bond. Then I used snap on red candy for the base coat and for this project I chose single stage red. Next I started airbrushing over the top of silver metallic that I applied to the drawers and to the top of the dresser. The diamond tread plate is airbrushed using my Iwata Eclipse HPC.
After this I process I am now adding rivets, shadowing, and some other cool stuff with the airbrush. Once this is complete I will apply clear coat to the airbrushed work for a shine and protection of the artwork. You can do custom airbrushing on pretty much anything if you have it prepared right before you start painting.
