Chair-O-Plane Rounding Boards

One of my favourite painting jobs to this day is still the rounding boards on a Jackson’s Chair-o-plane ride. The customer specified pink, gold and all the details on the job. I received the boards already prepared in base cream which was a nice surface to work from. The pattern, which I designed, was a mixture of a couple that caught my eye. A stencil was made of this and I preceded to pounce the patterns onto the ten panels.

The painting followed on working step by step until I was happy with each panel when they received two coats of gloss varnish to protect the paint, seal it in and give it a good finish. The customer collected the panels a few weeks later and was over the moon with the job. My favourite parts are the pink spray work and the way the colours complement each other.
