On our previous Get Creative blog, we showed you how Ryan at VELOVAS worked hard to add all the layers and colors required to get to the final frame vision of his “Party & Business” design by Mike at @pfaltzgraphic
Some readers commented the paint was “too much for them”, but that was exactly the goal… and they didn’t see how Ryan envisioned the final result, way more subtle and elegant that what the first steps of the process showed….

Talking about the challenges of that kind of finish, Ryan told us “it’s a dual finish bike, meaning that it is glass clear on one side and matte clear on the other side. And that was one of the most challenging things where the bike literally had to be finished twice, and for that final way you only have one chance…and there’s a whole lot of places that mistakes could’ve been made. Along with white being one of the most challenging colors to paint and keep clean. One little mistake would mean having to redo the whole bike because like I said, you literally only have one shot…”
