I've been thinking about rawing my frame recently, I know HOW to raw it but every YouTube video I see of peoples raw frames, are always like a bright silver. I want my frame to have a more copper tint to it like this bikePhoto

Any tips?

Here's my bike right now.

I dont know what paint stores you have but one of the ones by my house has a trans gold that could work if alot of layers are used

Yeah just strip it with paint stripper and clear coat it. Don't take the paint stripper off with anything too abrasive, that's what makes it shiny. I put trans black my frame, forks and bars and it's got a slightly copper effect to it after just a couple of coats. You want the metal to look a little weathered/dull before you clear coat it, so don't sand it down or anything, just let the paint stripper do its job and wipe it off with a rag. Then give it a good clean and degrease before using the clear coat

If using air craft paint stripper make sure to wear gloves, that shit burns.


if you’re pegs ain’t steel, you ain’t real
