If rubber-base paint has been used, the caustic soda treatment may not be effective and it may be necessary to use an organic solvent type of paint remover. Caution: - When using caustic soda or lye, avoid splashing eyes, skin, and clothing. The paints may be applied by brush or spray; the small spray attachment for vacuum cleaners is very convenient, especially for painting radiators. Remove side view mirrors (unless they're to be body color) as well as exterior door handles and locks. This will take some extra time because you need to remove the interior door panels to get these off, but it's worth it. Head lights, tail lights, marker lights and license plates should come off too, but you'll need them in place to drive to the paint shop. So bring some tools so you can quickly take these off once you arrive. Depending on the year Mustang you can just take off the chrome bezels or rings. The shop can then easily mask the headlight or tail light itself and still get plenty of paint around the edges.
In conclusion, this article has really just been a "Painting 101" exercise. I'll be adding more articles on the subject once you get more advanced. It's so rewarding to those who stick with it. My work now sells around the world online. So I'm glad I'm glad I stuck with it. It's been infinitely good to me, I've met the most interesting people....including Madonna! And I am so glad I get to do what I want And ultimately it's so gratifying to leave expressions of myself behind forever. And if the owners then turn around and sell my paintings for a fortune later, then that's the cherry on top for me. I feel lucky to have found my calling. And I hope you find it too. And I hope that every single time you view one of my paintings it brings you a little bit of the amazing joy it brought me when I was creating it. The solution in these circumstances is that it is best to not try drastic changes. If you feel you must make these major changes in your hair color. It is best to accomplish it gradually by adding low lights, (darker placements of color), or highlights, ( lighter placements of color). Will the hair color damage my hair? That is one of the number one questions that people ask most about coloring services. Hair color that is deposit only color, will not harm the hair. This is because the hair is being covered with a color primarily on the outside layer of the hair. This color choice is always one or more shades darker than your existing hair color. Will this hair color make me look younger? Yes, a new hair color can make us look years younger, if the correct one is chosen. Gray hair is basically loss of color pigment in the hair follicle all together. It can make us looked washed out and much older. When we have our gray hair colored it brings depth and color to our skin also. This is accomplished by the hair color reflecting on to our skin tone, eyes, lips and so on. Having the hair colored appropriately with somewhat of a warm color, and then adding highlights, will take years off of our looks. This is because we have enhanced our looks with depth and then brought a bit of light back into the hair in contrast to the depth. It will be up to you and your hair stylist to choose the best color for you and your hair. Step six: once you get all the layers just like you like, let it dry thoroughly for several days. Now take black and apply the shadows with your clean brush in keeping with the laws of shadow and light like you've learned earlier. If you put too much, wipe it back with a Q-tip or a rag until it looks like a shadow. Make sure you're putting shadows on top of only dry under layers. Always clean your brushes in between colors to keep the colors isolated and pure too. You don't want blue in your shadows, for example. Study my paintings if you wish because I do a lot of distinct shadows and I light things like vases, leaves, birds, fruit, etc. in ways that I think will stand out to you. Like if I paint a vase the bottom of the vase is darker than the top. Just like in real life. This applies to any shape whether it be a face or an apple or a vase. Also look at my backgrounds, as I've done a lot of them. Notice how each background is a multitude of layers to give it a finished and complicated look. Glazes allow me to reach this end. When I started out I didn't know what I was doing and friends and family thought I was crazy. And the very same people act like they knew I'd make it now that I have. Oh well, it's the way of the world. But stick with it and you'll be enlightened and inspired over time!
