It gets pretty boring when you driving down the highway and you see all the same colors of vehicles. Sure they are different makes and styles, but color wise they are all the same and uninteresting. Then every once in a while something really dynamic pulls up beside you. Its one of those cars that has been painted with a custom design. To paint a car is one thing but to custom paint it is a whole new world.
At least when you went to buy your car you had a few more color options then perhaps your grandfather did in his day and age. Now today, not only do you have to decide on color, you need to decide if you want metallic, or rust free or even scratch proof finishes.
When you get down to wanting to paint a car with custom colors you have to really give some thought as to what you want. It isn't cheap to custom paint a car. The paints are a very high grade poly urethanes.
When it comes time and you want to paint a car and you have decided to have a custom design put on it, then you are going to have to choose which type you want. A few years back the burning flame was the rage. To see a black car with those flames running down the sides was the envy of every avid car lover.
The flames are still very popular but the designs are somewhat different. They cover more of an area.
Another popular design is animals such as the wild mustangs or the flying eagle. Then there are designs that are just abstract in nature. The skulls and crossbones type art used to be more popular when it came to motorcycles, but it has sort of caught on with those car buffs that really want to paint a car with the custom designs. Another unique observation as well is that people like to just have the art painted as a mural on their trunks for example.
One of the newer type designs that really sort of fit in between the skulls and the flames is the dragons. These are becoming increasingly popular, and one has to admit they do look pretty impressive.
In today's age if you have decided to paint a car and have a custom design then you may find that a automotive logo design is suggested to you.
Then there are individuals who want to paint a car all in metallic with a variety of colors as opposed to any type of graphic. These can be quite stunning when the color selection goes well together and the airbrush color application flows.
One thing to remember, it you want to paint a car and customize it with a design, its not cheap. It can get quite expensive the more defined and elaborate you go. So its well worth only having it done on a car you plan on keeping for a while, or at least selling at a good price.
