I had some old shoulder bells that were distorted and useless so I decided to use them to test out my rattlecan paints. I'm really glad I started on scrap because they ended up pretty much sucking but here's what I learned:
-My yellow didn't really have to be as subdued as I made it, the original color looks better without green/ black misting.
-Doing laser scorch marks with black spraypaint is really difficult cause the spray nozzle is huge
-Black mixes with wet yellow to make gross green
-I didn't need hunter green, it made my green bell really really dark
Any advice on how to make my real paint-ups better would be much apperciated! My real bells have actual dents so it will be much more convincing...
