Students Design and Create Skateboard Decks!
End of the year and Auto Body has wrapped up with all the projects but one. Students are taking the last few weeks to complete their final take home project. This year we have done three projects that students can take home. First was the custom thermal cup, then the miniature guitar bodies, and now skateboard decks. Students have had to come up with a design and have it approved by Mr. Winters. Once that was done they were set off to create their designs. Mr Winters helped with the creation and custom paint techniques. There have been some amazing ideas and cool boards done in this project.
The students have also had the opportunity to have some local pinstripers come out, and along with Mr. Winters show students some of the techniques for pinstriping and lettering. Bob Behounek and Pat Finley came out to show the students some of their amazing talents. Each student had the chance to practice with a brush in their hand. What started as a simple demo of pinstriping went into a lettering and pinstriping design showcase.
Mr. Barbic’s golf cart was also completed. We are sure this thing will be noticed with all the metal flake in this paint job. In the sun it is practically blinding. We originally planned on a flamed paint job but due to a mistake in the masking we had to reshoot the metal flake and the flames that were masked on it had to be taken off. So with that being said we went with a more streamline scheme of Candy Orange scallops. We are extremely happy with the way this came out.
