Coloring the instruction sheet


Recommended Posts

I'll use a plastic picnic spoon for testing. This way you know what the color will look like and the rounded shape lets you see how it looks at different angles.

I scan mine (or pull down a PDF copy) and try options on my computer if I am trying graphics, unsure of body color or deciding on multitone paint jobs.  Usually, though, I find photos of the 1:1 in different color combinations and select from that

I've never done this for body color or graphics, but I will often go through the instructions and color code all the parts that get a particular paint treatment, such as; all steel parts, all aluminum parts etc...  This helps ensure that I don't have to go back and set the airbrush back up for that color.
