Nice work Wiccalh
I really like the paint job on these two cars.  The blue and yellow really shine.
What kind of paint did you use on these cars?
Also did you make the wheels?
The hood and spoiler treatments add a lot of character to the cars.
Nice work and thanks for sharing.
Lets see more.

Nice cars Wiccalh.  I was just looking at a spoiler on a Camaro this morning coming into work and saw the paint stripes just like you did.  I thought it was a nice look and you have done it.  NICE!!!

Thanks Wiccalh for the how to's.  
The craft paint worked really good on these vehicles, did it need much thinning?  
I agree with you "Krylon triple glaze" is a good product.
Thanks again.

Wiccalh - These look really sharp, brings back a lot of memories. Love the paint job, classic.
You mentioned airbrushing with craft paints - can you fill us in with a little more details about your method. Things like ... did you thin the paint, proportions ,drying times, etc. Thanks

Thinned the crafts paints with tap water to the consistency between cream and milk, strained through nylon stockings to remove any "chunks". Used a #5 tip on airbrush, I opened up needle to get about a 1/2" pattern. I just like the spray over brushing, gives a better look. Generally let dry 2-4 hours, with a fan blowing on it, air movement aids in drying, if in a rush otherwise overnight. I try to let clear coat dry for 48 hours before handling, depending on number of coats, 3 works best for me. Gives it some depth and higher gloss.

Wiccalh - There have been quite a few posts interested in and asking about airbrushing. Your breakdown is excellent, providing the details required - Udie
