After reading through a number of posts about painting a skateboard and ruining a friends deck at a party. I decided to give it a go. The only thing I wanted to do different was make more layers and have it hand drawn. I had a lot if fun doing it, I hope you do to. I would like to thank CraigSnedeker his post on the topic is what I based my project on.

Step 1: Acquire Equipment

What you'll need: Skateboard Spray paint (I chose midnight blue, reef blue, black, white, Tuesday afterburn orange and jasmine yellow) Pencil Paper (both drawing and grease proof, lots) Scalpel or Stanley knife (make sure it's sharp, helps) Tape Sandpaper Detergent and hot water
I got a friend that looks like this. Nice board.
Nice job - good to see you can get good results without needing expensive equipment.
