This is a great way to use up those scraps of that hideous colour vinal you may have lying around.
The end result turned out great, but the camera does not do it full justice, also I was using a rather scuffed sheet of aluminium and a few scrapes where to deep to remove.
I'm very chuffed with the end result and I'm sure I will use this technique on future custom projects.
I will be offering the service to my biker friends if they want any custom etching done on the aluminium parts of their bikes.
Equipment used :
25ltr compressor (bigger would be better)
Draper sandblasting kit
Dried and sieved plastering sand.
Thanks for looking.
Step 1: Motorhead - Remember me now! Motorhead - allright!
If you don't have a plotter you can make your own decals using a scalpel if you have the patience and a steady hand.
I had this Motorhead logo that I had intended to put on my laptop but it was to big for the remaining space not covered with decals.
I have been a fan of Motorhead since the mid 80's, have worn a Motorhead belt buckle since then (even with suits etc) and even got the nickname of Lemmy at technical collage.
Nowadays I'm not a fan of anything after the Orgasmatron album I still love the classic stuff and this logo.
If you ever see a dark green Mazda 121 (its really a ford fiesta) with a Motorhead logo on the bonnet I have just driven past you.
