You have a right to be concerned! I had a short lived website in the past. It was created by my neighbour for me and run as a forum much like most online communities are these days. It never got far and was closed. To keep this brief, a simple code/alteration was made allowing access to username and...

Looks great on my mac.

Only thing that stuck out was the drop down menus which are 20 or 30 pixels down from the headings. They won't let me select them, instead I have to click on the main category headings and navigate from there.

Other than that I have to say it's a very professional job.

Yes, well said Phil. I haven't been here for a while, but it's good to see this resource is still here, being run so well. It's a credit to Rob and Mike, who must be seriously switched on to be able to fit all this in.

Well done guys and thanks.

Just tried again and they're all appearing.
Is that one of those unexplainable computer glitches?

Just been looking through the Show us your stuff forum for some inspiration, but a lot of the pics are missing.

Apologies if I'm missing something Rob.

Yes I've been busy Rob, building a new studio at home. Jan/Feb is definetely the wrong time to be doing a loft conversion.
Hope all on the boards are busy and well.

Steve Blinding stuff. I didn't realize you could heat the gold. That must quicken the job. I've been leaving them overnight between applications, duh. Lovely airbrush effect too.

Hi Tim I can see where you're coming from on Gill Bold, its like its trying to be a heavier version of the original, but has ended up losing its classic roman quality. The ultra bold however, I think is totally different. Its a typeface all on its own and it has a friendly, informal look to it. I'd ...

Hi Brian

Couldn't agree more. THE Great British typeface. Bar none.
You've done some great stuff. I'd like to see some of that Gill sans. Any chance of posting a bit up?

Here's 5 classic sans serif typefaces to get you going. I've put a bolder version underneath each one just to show different weights, although it may be black or ultra bold etc. These won't set the world on fire, but you won't go wrong either, especially if you contrast light and heavy weights. http...

Hi Mick Pete's got it spot on. I do it exactly the same. The important thing is to use oil based, particularly primer.

Henry - That work on is excellent. The Audi is amazing. I don't mind an old bit of ply or ally, but a 20 grand car? Scary. Yes, you've reminded me, I used Deka, once, for about ten minutes, couldn't get on with it. And I'd stupidly bought a lot of colours. You're doing some great stuff over there. I...

Thanks Mike You should get that compressor cranked up. I haven't seen finer vinyl work than yours, anywhere, so I would think you could be pretty dangerous with an airbrush! Regarding paints and vinyls: I use 1-shot enamels so I can't comment on ink or Createx paints, but from whats been said they s...

I do maybe three or four of these jobs a year. I do a wide range of other stuff, design for print, signs and a bit of web stuff. Most of the people I do spray jobs for already know my work, so I will generally discuss a theme with them, collect my reference material, get it approved and start the jo...

Thanks Rob On these I've mixed brush work with airbrush, all the flat colours are brushed in. I don't use masking, so I do all the airbrushing first and put the backgrounds in with the brush which cleans up the overspray. It's all large scale, the Bilco character is on a bowling alley wall which is ...

Mick I use 1-shot for all my airbrush work. I work on alluminium and plywood. Aluminium gives a better finish as it has a smoother surface, but I prefer ply as it "grips" better due to the grain. I have also sprayed directly onto foamex, but I would only recommend this for interior use as adhesion i...

Clip Art

I can recommend Art Explosion. It's American, but you will almost always find something relevant. There are thousands of images, I think it's up to 750,000 now. It's also pretty cheap.
