Learning to paint is very interesting. With the wonderful help of a local professional painter, as well as, a newly found friend, Brian Story of Story’s Collision has provided great insight into the art of painting. As Brian will confirm, I’ve been spooked about the whole idea of painting, especially the safety aspect of painting. Not only has Brian been very good as a teacher, but he is also very patient in his approach. He is definitely an artist and very interested in helping others learn how to paint.
I also found a youtube site called www.learnautobodyandpaint.com. The owner (Tony Richie) has made a bunch of videos about painting, paint and product reviews, discussions about spray guns and compressors, and everything else related to painting. Considering that I know absolutely nothing about auto or aircraft painting, his videos have also been helpful. Below is a short video about the Atom X20 paint gun.
I have spent a reasonable amount of time researching paint-related products including spray guns, safety equipment, types of paint, paint manufacturers, paint design, painting process – everything. Although I’ve learned a lot, I’ve yet to paint anything.
