Painting - How to get a "ripping effect"
I'm hoping someone here can answer my question, or better yet, maybe have a link to a website showing how to get a ripping effect. Here's a pic below (from Canopy F/X):

Any insight would be helpful.

Thanks,
Angelo

I'm not 100% sure what you're asking for details on. If you mean how would you layer the paint scheme. I would paint that checkered pattern first. Then I would mask over the checker and spray the primary colors (the yellows and orange).

I'm not sure if that is what you were asking or if you meant how did they get the shapes of the masking. I don't know of any magical process to get a clean edge masked in the shape of a rip. I would probably end up either laying down tape and cutting out the desired pattern, or trying frisket paper cut into the pattern. There are some patterns available that are pre-cut. Flames and tribal stuff. here is a link to what I'm talking about. (I've never shopped at this place.. it just had pictures and description of the supplys I was talking about)

That is exactly what I'm asking - do they just lay jagged pieces of masking tape or is there some sort of stencil?

Most painters that I know don't use paper masking tape anymore. The tapes that I usually use are a plastic material that stretches and bends around corners easily and leaves a crisp line. The paper masking tape that would leave a jagged edge like that when torn would most likely get too saturated with paint and not peel off well.(lots of bleeding through)

That frisket paper is the stencil. You would have to just cut out the pattern and lay it down.

One more thing. The thing that makes that "ripping effect" pop out at you so well is the very slight shadow effect that they added along the border between color and checker pattern. Look at the nooks and crannys of the rip effect and see the dark shadows added to make it look 3D. Its little touches like that that set good paint work apart. Something that fools the eye and you may not even notice unless you study it.

Frisket paper is the way to go. It cuts easily with a modeling knife and forms to compound curves very well.

In another life I painted vans and bikes. I do miss it......
