Even before the heyday of Von Dutch, Tommy the Greek, Dean Jeffries, and Big Daddy Roth, the ultimate (and often most economical) way to personalize your car or motorcycle was to lay some wicked lines on top of your paintwork. Done with a steady hand and an eye for style, pinstripes are the enamel cherry atop a steel sundae.In How to Pinstripe," acclaimed veteran striper Alan Johnson teaches you everything you need to know to get started, further your mastery of the form, and understand how a good design comes together. In addition to a primer on the history and evolution of pinstriping, Johnson explains every step of the pinstriping process, from choosing paint and brushes that suit your style and abilities, to preparing surfaces, experimenting with symmetrical and asymmetrical designs, striping freehand, and even using patterns. In addition to stressing the importance of finding your own style and having fun with the hobby, Johnson explains the basics of color theory and unique considerations for antique and classic cars, hot rods and customs, and motorcycles. For more advanced pinstripers, there's even tried-and-true advice on apprenticing and working car shows.Completely illustrated with step-by-step color photography throughout, How to Pinstripe" is a comprehensive source for stone-cold beginners and salty veterans alike.
