    I was contemplating doing a full colour deck spray on the potato. Weight is the issue though, and doing that to a nice white board.

    Yeah simplicity for sure...with larger solid areas.

    It's good fun. I enjoy doing it. If you've got an old board that's a bit beaten or off white I recommend giving it a try. My old Dom was the first one I ever sprayed and I think it came out good.
    I've never been gutted with how one turned out. Simple seems to be best I think.

    nah not yet. i went the long way around that's why it's taken a very long time to get it. once things are worked out to make getting customs to europe a bit more quickly i guess they'll become available here.

    To be honest i haven't had a pad come off on a board iv sprayed so i wouldn't really know. I suppose the more layers of lacquer you put over the top of spray, the less likely it is to happen. If this pad comes off and takes some paint off with it i could just paint it back in or it gives me the option to do a new design on the board. To be honest though it would be underneath the new tail pad so you would hardly see it.... if at all.

    but that's just my take on it. someone else might have some more input?

    you may feel differently but if i were you, id just go for it.

    what board have you got coming?

    I've always avoided spraying where the tail pad will sit incase the pad peels off with some paint. I've noticed a lot of boards, Taj's for instance, he sticks the pad down over the paint job like you have and wondered if maybe it's not a problem.
    Have you every had any issues with that? My new board will be here tomorrow, tempted to get my spray on also....

    before spraying i went over all of the areas with wet and dry just to key the surface so the paint has something to grab on to.

    so i done all of the green lines first on the far side (everything else had newspaper taped down all over it to eliminate over spray)

    waited for that to dry then did the same again on the blue lines (with the rest of the board covered)

    then once it was all dry i did 2 layers of clear lacquer to seal the design which prevents the colour chipping or coming off and that was it.

    most of the time is spent taping up the board correctly and getting the masking tape on to the board straight!
