    I love this post and am thinking of having my hood re-done. All the metalflake, fish scales and geometric striping is very appealing to me.

    After years of watching this thread and being inspired to one day try my own hand at painting something, I finally did my first 'project' on a friends OT bike. She likes butterflies, so that's what I did. I learned a lot on what to do and what not to do. I'm already buying materials for another project.

    It was pretty cloudy when we did the 'reveal' so the flake and pearl are hard to see, but I'm pretty stoked for my first time.

    Mattimus, great job for first time. I can only imagine someday I'll be brave enough to try and pull off something like that.

    also great avatar.

    Thank you. I believe it is a Suzuki SV650 if I remember correctly.

    Thank you. It really wasn't as hard as it seems. Give it a try!
