Hey guys,
I finally got around to painting my bike. I wanted to do it myself and do a Marbleized effect. i choose the house of kolors Blue marbleizer with the black base. I think it came out pretty good for the first paint job i ever did. It was fun. It took me 3 days. Prep work was the worst. Sanding sucks.

Anyway Let me know what u think.

It doesn't look too bad for a first attempt. It does look like it needs more clear and/or wet sanding/polishing though.

Not bad for a first attempt... A suggestion, use the that colour as a base to add some graphics and then add plenty of clear!

try 1000+ grit sandpaper with several days in between drying time of clears. second most labor intensive part of painting, after prep. I helmet usually takes me 2 weeks of just clear coating/sanding, depending on number of layers of base colors and design.
