My new & improved Oakley A-frames

10 Dec, 2007

So my friend Steve is an awesome artist and very creative. So I traded something for him to totally revamp my Oakley A-frames since the neon orange was a bit too bright for me. I got the goggles back last night and I’m stoked on how great they turned out!

I asked for pink and white plaid for the goggle frame design.

Here’s the goggles before…

Here’s the goggles now!

Now I can’t wait to wear them on the snow!

    Lots of time! The A-frames are nice since all the foam inserts can come out so not much masking is required. Normally all the foam needs to be masked off. Then its a base coat….then the pink. Its hard to see in the photo, but there is a lot of splattering in the pink. Now its on to the masking which is cut on a Mimaki plotter. This is one of the hardest parts because of the shape of goggles it tends to warp the mask, so lots of time is spent here. Then the final spray and a demask. Im starting to do customs on a regular basis, so hit up shay if you want some done. Cheers!

    Definitely, Steve’s got talent for designing rad goggle art. Zag asked in the faq section more about it as well.
