    youve got to first lightly sand the area where your painting and then after painting spray a few clear coats of acrylic

    i have a true dumpster diver board that i found last summer...in a trash bin. Its a 6'8" T.Patterson that had loads of cracks and dings. I fixed them all this winter and now its an absulutly sound board. Perfect for hurricane swells. Only thing is that its yellow, really yellow, and white spots all over from the repairs. I need to spray the whole board first. I was thinking of copying Tom Curren's black beauty board.

    I saw this in surfer magazine... But one thing you can do is just put dish washing soap on your board in some swirly patterns and what not, the just spray paint over it. The paint wont stick where the soap is, so when you hose it off, you end up with these nice organic swirly patterns. I've never done it before, but it looked pretty cool in the article.

    Roll Dora style and use crayons for wax. Draw purty pictures of kitty cats and snakes.

    I've been meaning to paint a wood flooring look on one of my boards. I think it'd look real good.

I always do a pencil sketch before i paint so i know where and what I'm painting. After your done painting, Use Kyrlon's Clear coat Satin. It gives it a vibrant color and seals your work in. do 3 layers of clear coat allowing time to dry for each coat. once the 3rd coat is fully dry, use wet 600 Grit sandpaper to lightly sand the board. This evens the Clearcoat. after all that you'r officially done with your board, it's ready to surf. I've done boards for friends right before they go out, and i've done full board pieces. either way it's a great way to spice up your board.

    I'll Post pics of some work when i can find my Camera plug-in cable for my computer
    muchas gracias senor. im guessing you should use the water based ones correct?

    I mean i guess that might work...but I've heard they fade pretty fast, probably want to just go with the water based paint pens

    Definitely use water base paint pens. Don't bother with anything else.
