Looks Great Venom...


I'm sure you have been asked before but the Marble look was that done the old school way. I'm considering using http://www.xoticcolours.com/products.htm for some marble ghost flames.

Thats old school but not modern marbelizing. Not even close. I am aware of thier products though and the Xotic Crystals are fantastic, I have seen nice work using them thats looks something like marbeling as well.
Glad to repeat the technique since so many here are newer members and I am always on Missions. This one is a patented process with the painter really having to have had alot of experience with it and Marbleizing gel cannot work on top of OEM lacquers, it requires an "candy" coat to react with. Normally a Car is Shot with all White or Black Candy and fully cured before the Silver or Gold Flake marbleizing gel is put on. Mine was done with two bottom colors and then instead of clear coating the Silverflake gel after the process, it was covered with Blood Red Translucent candy. Then Clear Coats with a Multi colored Pearlflake called Red Ice. The paint job was a first, one of a kind, $7K, and thought up by me. The painter never did this before nor thinks he will repeat it.So the car'* brand new OEM paint was rough sanded

And painted entirely with a Candy called Wineberry. After semi- curing, the silver metalflake marblelizing gel and a catylst is shot over the entire car and let dry for a half hour or so. Now the car looks like all sparkling silver. Then Shrink Wrap plastic large enough and specifically made for this type of design covers the entire car. Another 30 minutes or so goes by and then we hit it with heat guns. The shrink wraps puckers and creates the design. The painter knew just the right time to rip off the shrink wrap and as he did, the plastic kept in some puckered parts 2 layers exposing the OEM paint, and in some parts 1 layer exposing the Wineberry Candy, and in some parts nothing and left the silver flake intact. The the painter took an air gun and sculpted swirls into in while it was still rather soft and pliant Here is pics of what the car looked like at this stage..

The car then sat for two days while the whole mess hardened. Then the entire Car was hit with Translucent BloodRed Candy. It changed the Silver metalflake to bloodred, and deepened the other two colors.

This was allowed to dry and cure. Then 3 coats of Clear hardened enamael with a multicolor predominately red Pearlflake called Red Ice. Several days later the car went through two wet sandings of coarser/ then finer sandpaper, then 3 buffings, each with a succesively finer grit for a glass finish.
