Some Jobs Are Never Done

I know I said that my airbrushed flames project was finished but there was a little glitch. The motorcycle owner had a problem when he was spraying it with clearcoat. There was a drip, there was over-zealous fixing, there was smudging...it was ruined. Oh well, I got to do it one more time. This is my seventh (and hopefully LAST) try.


This was not what I wanted to be doing on my days off. Actually, I wanted to paint my shed. I bought some second-hand cans of paint from the Habitat Store. I found 3 gallons of brownish paint and a pint of white so that I can mix them to make a (hopefully) nice color. The gallons were only $5 and the pints were $2.

I have 2 more days before I have to go back to work but a storm is moving in so I don't think I will be painting tomorrow. That's ok, there are a lot of weekends left in the year.

Seventh time is the charm?

You going to paint flames on your shed too?

Haha. I was at the hardware store today and saw little hammers with flames and little boxcutters. So cute :) My mobile home has a wall of flames now because that's where I airbrushed. Do you think it will increase its re-sale value?

Probably won't hurt it.

'Well cared for mobile home. Freshly painted. Move in condition. Matching shed to convey.'

Thanks Sharon Rose! You have a nice weekend too.

This small spray booths draw fresh air through the open front panel by installing an exhaust fan in the rear of the booth. The fan draws fumes and over-spray away from the painter and into an exhaust system that carries the toxins to another filter and expels the filtered air into the atmosphere.
