Being from the automotive paint industry and doing custom paint work I said go for it. We need people that have ability and pride in their work. Our painters are either drunks or addicts and we need good artists. I have painted several stocks for a local gentleman that worked for Angle Porting. We could not do them fast enough for him. He always had 20 or 30 sets of furniture for Benelli or Beretta skeet guns. I will tell you this, work on an american flag(stars and Bars waving) theme and it sells like hotcakes. Mostly to skeeters and bench resters. Pricing anywhere from simple (125.00) to complex (350.00). We once cleared a stock for a gentleman that had spent 7000.00 on just the furniture. He spent 4 days at a stock maker (5000) and then put a 2000.00 medallion in it. He wanted it slick as glass (a man with way too much money). Good luck with your art and as long as you take pride in your work and charge what it is truly worth you can have fun,make an art piece and make money to fund your habit. If you need any advice or questions answered give me a shout. Tommy
By the way,as a 20year + veteran in the custom world, I give you props, true artistry. Post some more paint jobs. Carry on................
I voted go for it because it's obvious you have some talent. However, I think you need to put more time/thought into your paint jobs. let your inner artist out and then take the time to really make them special. The above examples are nice but not outstanding. Outstanding sells, mediocre not so much.
