Nice work on the fades! Send us pics of a moonrise the next time you do one—seems every painter has a different take on that color combo—especially how dark the purple gets.

To me personally, its too light pink. It doesnt look too original. The paint tends to become even lighter pink with UV rays and sunlight over time .... and by the way: Its called "Dolomiti". Not Dolomite ;-)

Always known it as Dolomite, maybe a translation thing? and is it not Magenta?

The (nick) name of this KLEIN paint scheme derives from a famous european ice cream produced by "Langnese" during the 80s. Maybe it still exists today. Which was called DOLOMITI and had the same color scheme as the bike. The official KLEIN paint color name is simply: "Bright green/white/magenta fade.

Isn't there a saying that if you can't say anything nice - don't say anything at all.
First you suggest he's going to clear off to Thailand with the frames - then he's not done the right colour - and calls it by the wrong name 🤦

@KOMRAID - stunning looking work fella. Can you sort out a respray in Sour Grape fade for Fguki?

The 'pink' on the Dolomite frame is actually magenta - it is a different shade than the pink used on Moonrise. Also, the colour will look slightly off as it's under studio lights. This is a better picture in natural light (but before clear coating, so it won't look as shiny as it should do). I have matched these colours to the orginal ones used and they are spot on.

Great work.

I’m aware of the 2 well known Klein painters who’s been at it for years it seems but it’s nice to see this level of skill from someone else.

Are you self taught? Surely a background in paint of some kind?

Thank you.

Self taught over a lot of years starting with airbrushing crash helmets in the 90's and then all manor of bike frames since.

impressive even more if self taught.

I’ve always wondered what the costs are of the more complicated jobs. For instance nightstorm. I’d guess easily a couple of K.

Do you take on simple non Klein paint jobs?
