i've been trying to paint this image on a very large scale (roughly 3' x 4') and it's not working out. i bought all these day glo pigments to combine with urethane and they're semi-transparent and show all the errors. it's not as forgiving as enamel. although, the transparency could be cool if used in the right way.

plus, i was told at guerra paints, these are not "color fast." so after i finish, who knows how long until it fades.

i want the image to look like powder-coated, super slick, glowing, gilbert and george. "cool school." "finish fetish."

but i have no clue how to go about making this happen.
