Custom airbrushed skateboards make a great affordable gift for all ages, even if you don’t skate they look great hanging on the wall.
Recently I was commissioned to paint 2 totally different skateboard decks, however both were to be given as birthday gifts.
The first one was a zflex long board, the customer wanted it custom painted white with a black logo, the logo belongs to the birthday boys band. I painted this board in a De Beer white and airbrushed the logo in a black pearl, also from De Beer. Finally I coated it with 3 coats of 2 pack De Beer clear and it looked great. The yellow wheels added that final touch of colour!
The second board I was commissioned to airbrush was a blank timber board, the customer was getting this one airbrushed for his fathers birthday and wanted it to have the Harley Davidson logo in a dark red with some flames coming off each side. I base coated this one in a DNA pure black and airbrushed the logo in a House of Kolor shimrin red and silver. The pure black lived up to it’s name when that clear coat hit! This should look awesome hanging on the garage wall!
