    DescriptionThis book is a complete how-to book, showing both beginning and experienced artists how to airbrush, pinstripe, and goldleaf. Meant for automotive and motorcycle applications, the projects seen in this new book are done primarily with automotive paints because of their durability and super bright pigments. The projects themselves range from simple airbrush and pinstripe art, to more complex graphics and flame jobs that require the use of all three art forms. Twelve start-to-finish how-to sequences make up the bulk of this book. Each is documented from the first sketch to the multiple steps that lead to finished art. Nothing is left out, the photo record of each project is thorough and captures each part of the process. Captions are written by the artists, making each chapter more like a one-on-one teaching session than a simple how-to lesson. Each of these sequences is done by a well known artist, men and women like Leah Gall, Lenni Schwartz, Vince Goodeve, and East Coast Artie. And each artist takes time out from painting for a Q&A session. Learn why Leah Gall uses an Iwata airbrush, why Lenni Schwartz prefers a double-zero brush from Mack, and which brand of goldleaf Keith Hanson prefers. Though there are other books that discuss pinstriping or airbrush art, there are very few books that cover all three means of embellishing and personalizing cars, trucks and motorcycles. With 144 pages and over 500 color photos, "How-To: Airbrush, Pinstripe and Goldleaf" belongs on the book shelf of any aspiring or established artist.
