    I have, it works, but the results are for me are usually pretty faint anyway, its like the wood absorbs alot of the ink deeper in.

    I have an idea but i wanted to get your input before I tried it, I want to get some photo quality paper, the glossy kind, and directly glue it to the board, razor off the edges and clear coat that sucker. Anyone tried it? I think the colors would hold alot better

    I used mod podge to transfer the ink, it worked quite well but you can see that it is a bit blurry because the paper stuck to the wood

    I applied the mod podge on the wood, then on the paper. I stuck the paper on the deck and even out the thing with a credit card. You must let it dried to peel it off after but the paper was basically glued to it. So it gave a messy look to the final result.

    Will this work as a good clear coat? if not, what would work better?

    Hello fellas,

    My question is, will spraypaint reduce the grip of black Vicious? I dont have the money to buy a Black and Red Grip, so why not settle with just one in two colors.
    Thanks for the reply in advance.

    @Skywarper

    Ive never done it myself but since Vicious grip tape is extremely rough (with small pieces of glass within the grip tape) I do not imagine it will make that big a difference. It'll most likely still work better then regular but don't hold me to it

    Hey so its my first time posting on this forum, any input is appreciated.
    If there is a better section to post this please let me know.

    I am thinking of designing some custom graphics for a blank long board and painting it with markers, paint, etc... and selling it to some people I know. If people kinda like em I was thinking of potentially selling them online or something. I love art, longboarding, and business so why not mix them up. I do not aim to make a butt-ton of cash but as long as I am not loosing money I still wanna do this for fun.

    My Question: What are the legalities involved when re-selling blank boards with your own custom graphics?

    I.e) If I do not build the boards my self but apply custom graphics, how can I sell them? Could I make my own "brand" of boards even if I do not build them?

    For Example) If I apply my own graphics and make a logo, could I then sell the boards as "ABC Skateboards"? And in the details explain that all my boards are manufactured by _______ company?

    I know that the big companies (Landyahtz, etc...) actually build/produce there own boards from scratch in the warehouse.

    So again I ask, would it be possible to purchase blank boards from a skateboard manufacturing company, put custom graphics on em, and re-brand em and sell em under your own "skateboard company" name?

    Thanks!

    To all who, like me, follow (lurk) this thread and are constantly on the hunt for new and better design ideas and techniques I've posted a video about the photo transfer technique over here which I think gives fantastic results for minimal skill. Hope this inspires y'all.

    This is a board mid-process - the white patches are removed in subsequent steps:

    It's funny, I do the opposite (build my own boards and apply graphics I find on the 'net). Now I don't KNOW for sure but I'm sure it is no problem to brand and resell blanks. Other industries (like electronics) also have "blanks" except they call them "OEM modules" and that's the point: you take it, improve on it and resell it as your own brand. There may be terms attached so check with your supplier but I'm sure they don't make blanks so kids can buy individual boards - they WANT someone to buy bulk for resale.

    Don't paint over that pretty bamboo! Just lightly pre-scuff with a 220 grit;
    Make some stencil graphics with blue painter's tape or something . . .
    Then go over the Krylon w/ some decent clear polyurethane when it's dry.

    You should preserve some of the look of the natural wood (grass, rather)

    I don't have much knowledge on marker pens.


    I found this website online while searching for chalk markers. Thought of sharing as it will be useful to others

    Hi!That usually happens if you use a glossy dark colour over a layer of matte or fluor colour. This can ruin your work,but well used you can get an amazing crackle effect.
