I was sanding a lot of brass once I saved the filings. I put the filings in a salt shaker, masked off the area I wanted gold. Then I sprayed clear enamel, sprinkled the brass powder on it, then sprayed clear again. It looks pretty cool, but I might be a little bit crazy
I used Finesse Pinstriping tape, which is a masking tape that comes in different sizes, spacings, and number of stripes.
I often think about this when I look at the faded double box pinstripes on my 1912 Iver Johnson as that was done by hand, but that guy's striping on a compound curved surface with some dude jabbering away next to him. And they're probably paying him next to nothing.That vid showing the guy hand-striping Royal Enfield tanks tho...! That's skill!
Wonder how many tanks he got through striping like that before he made it look that easy? Bet there's a scrap-heap-sized pile of wonkily-striped tanks somewhere just out of shot in the apprentice liner's department...lol.
