In the world of art, there are a variety of modalities that are particularly interesting to know about, such as pinstriping and lettering. Pinstriping is the art of painting fine lines using special brushes with long hair. There are many different brushes, with different lengths of hair, densities and handles. The brush style is crucial for the lines. As far as lettering is concerned, it refers to a creative discipline based on drawing letters. Different colours, shapes, types of letters are combined ... also banners and drawings.
Which colour is best for pinstriping and lettering?
In order to achieve the desired pinstriping and lettering results, high-quality paints must be used. So-called enamels which have a great flow in order to ensure maximum homogeneity of the lines. Drying also plays an important role, as it has to have optimum stabilization so the user has enough time to finish the lines and letters.
The available range of pinstriping / lettering colours on the market is large and different finishes can be found: opaque, metallic, glossy, etc.
Another important aspect is the density of the colours. The texture is ideally gelatinous which greatly facilitates handling and application. For professional results the enamels must have an excellent covering capacity. Therefor the pigments must be of the best possible quality.
Finally, the adhesion of the enamels should also be evaluated. It is advantageous if the paints adhere to any types of surfaces without prior priming. This facilitates the process.
Lettering is currently more than ever en vogue. The art of letters can also be used for business purposes. Lettering for bars, restaurants and any other kind of shop. Over the last years it has become a creative discipline with thousands of applications.
