nice! do you know what you will use as a varnish or clearcoat?
Not really sure yet... Maybe just several layers of modpodge... was also thinking of doing a spot varnish on the focal points. Really I'm just winging it as I go, alot goes through my mind the more I work on it, like jig sawing around the top mountain to make the nose of the board the shape of the mountain. I wish I also swallow tailed the deck before I started... Then of course there is also the base I need to think about painting...
That's tight man....keep it up. Better than most topsheets I've seen.
thankx! That means alot. I never understood never summers art? I personally think is so bland and eeehh… especially with a sick name like NS, there so much potential for artistic expression based on the name alone… I wanna make a spoof deck called "fuck summer" and improve the visual eye candy...
NS art is for the Minimalist in us all, same for Arbor
you were joking about painting the bottom right?
I get the minimalist "less is more" idea. I actually prefer that style most. Obviously it doesnt show in this deck im painting, but it's the first snowboard I get to paint so im ALLLL over the place. I think most of the NS decks look like stock art though...not all of them, but half. I dunno, NS art just doesn't do it for me...but ARBORS clean woodgrain top sheets are flawless. Anyways, yes I was planning on painting the base... I don't intend on riding the deck, its far to small for me... and it seemed like this board already was put to EXCELLENT use and had a good life from West (he donated the board for the pursuit of the arts and karma points with mother nature for epic POW days)… I figured, retire the board to be placed on a wall somewhere hopefully...Donate it, or maybe if it sells use the funds for ProtectOurWinters.org ...or just something to support our passion for surfing on snow...ideas are always welcomed =) if only it could sell for 2 million dollar LOL, I could give half to WINTERdefense and use the other half to fly some forum members to Japan for some freshies LOL ...pipe dreams can be very amusing.
