    I have been working on this on and off for the past year. I lost steam in the middle of the project but I got some back and continued working on it..

    I decided to go with blue for the matador and I will be adding some gold trims later on...

    Wow! Great start! What nozzle size did you use for the pearlized blue?

    Very nice, an extra challenge with the pearlized blue! Can't imagine you can go much smaller on nozzle size with those, can you? Looking good so far.

    The bull is looking great already, especially on untreated canvas!:thumbsup: You should finish this piece!

    Was that your goal to paint on untreated canvas?

    There's great thread here on the forum for preparing canvases for ABing. I did that way myself and would advise to you trying it. The surface becomes just great for scratching and erasing needs.

    Looking good Mate. I had wondered if pearl Autoair would go through the .35, so thanks for clearing that up.

    Yes I did actually.. I wanted the canvas texture to show on the finish piece. It does make fine scratches a little difficult but I just use that to my advantage.

    Coming along great Zot, I haven't sprayed AA but I have sprayed Spectra-Tex metallic through my hp-b+ With no bother. Always had issues with AA whatever I sprayed through but at the time it was pretty much all I could get.

    For a while, I could get spectra tex from Michael's but they changed brands. I still have a lot of AA's and Wicked colors... I am just trying to use them up. I loaded the paint in my bottom feed and had no problem with it...

    Details for the suit is penciled in. I will then paint it next using traditional brushes and acrylic paint.
