Gday to all, thanks for taking the time to look at another post from myself, here is a few piccy's of a motorcycle tank I recently painted for my latest bike build, the bike itself is a 1980 Kawasaki KZ200 which I have restyled as an old school scrambler style build. Enjoy.

Tank stripped and ready for filler and priming

next step was to mask up the checkers down the backbone of the tank ready for the metallic black.

next I hit it with a coat of silver and while still wet I covered it with cling film and moved it around with my hands to create a marbled effect and removed before dry, it is a process best done quite quickly with a very wet coat of paint, once removed I candied over the marbling with a candy red metallic and removed the taped areas to expose all that hard work.

then the clear gets laid on until a smooth finish is achieved, the marbling effect is quite textured and it takes a few coats of clear to get it to smooth out enough you can wet rub it perfectly smooth without effecting any of the colour layers applied.

once the texture has been wet rubbed out working my way from  800 grit all the way to 2000 grit I then give a rough cut and polish until ready to install on the bike where it will get it's final mirror finish polish. cheers to all for your attention and hope I did not bore too much with this process, lol
