Water effects for your bike
#1
If you've ever wondered how to do the water effect in your paint on your bike. This is your chance to find out how. This is so simple anyone can do it. First get your bike prepped for paint then shoot your color on and let it dry. Next get yourself a spray bottle with water in it set the spray to fine. Lay the bike on it's side and spray your water on it then take an airbrush and spray a darker color on the drops just make sure you get horizontal to the drops.

Now let the water evaporate and you have the water drop effect.

Repeat this process over the entire bike now after you have completed that spray a good quality of clear coat over the entire bike. Now when people look at your bike they'll think it's wet when it's not.

I may just try this in my next paint project over this winter. Looked at a couple google images and really liked it. Smile.
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!
