On Facebook the other day Mike Dusold said he was going to be painting flames on a customer’s Chevy pickup and that he was going to do things up a little different. When he started posting pictures along the way I sent him a message and said “Dude, send me more photos of this thing while you are doing it so we can run this for our readers to check out!” He agreed and sent a few more photos so now you guys get to see some of the steps involved. This is by no means all of them, since Mike wasn’t shooting photos for a story, but it will give you a good idea of what it takes to put down licks like this.
Mike is stupid talented, and does all the shadows, pinstriping, and everything himself. We only know a couple custom painters that do that and their names are the ones you always see in magazines and winning trophies. Mike can do this kind of job in his sleep, and is incredibly talented, but it doesn’t mean it’s not a lot of work.
I had this body style Chevy pickup with flames on the front and loved it. There is something about the body lines on one of these that lends itself to flames for sure. Of course flames look good on most anything if they are done as nicely as Mike’s.
Want flames of your own? Mike is located in North Texas and he can paint ANYTHING you want on your car, truck, bike, plane, wall, whatever. Literally anything. They do full builds, just paint, or anything in between. Check them out at DusoldDesigns.com
We are planning to show more of what Mike and the crew at Dusold designs do throughout 2016 because we know how much it impresses us and figure you’ll dig it too! Next time we’ll have step by step photos!
