From Mayhem’s Blog.
So the young Frenchman have returned to the land of wine and cheese. Paul and Tristan leave behind a messy glass shop, gritty glitter filled brushes, a wasteland of colorful 1 gallon buckets and some solid inspiration for many board builders around the globe. Here is a sampling from some of their best work from the last 6 weeks.
Many of these boards, and others, are still available for sale at a new website: SURFTANGENTS.COM
Coupla’ “Trashed” Hotcoats over neon two tone tints with inlay planet logos and spot matte/gloss overlays are of next level execution. Many of these techniques and treatments were developed by underground So Cal board builders over the last few decades, but no one in my experience is executing them at as high of level as the Bastards right here and now.
This pair of Bottom Feeders with matte finish, opaque white contrasted glitter filled, glossed tints are a fantastic example of what the boys are fully capable of. All the stops pulled out.
Everyone seemed to really love the pop colors of this RNF Classic.
Lost Enterprises… Since ’91… Forrest Green BF tint with ’91 inlay and opaque checkerboard, with gloss n polish.
Mustard Couch Potato. Pretty stock for the work we did this winter, but the color and all the different levels of saturation in the various layers of glass is just right.
This Forrest-Lime green Couch Potato with full gloss is one of my faves. The yellow Futures boxes add the right amount of pop.
The Pink-Purple one ain’t so bad either…
Or the brown/yellow.
Lucky #5, with large scale glitter inlay. I love the colors on this one. It was the first glitter inlay we did this trip and although no one really knows “what the 5 stands for” it was an instant fave.
This one is already sold but the gold leaf lettering inlay cobined with the glitter wash blood red tint is just amazing. It sold in one day.
This patriotic Lazy Boy glitter fest, inspired by Peter Fondas “Easy Rider” helmet, also sold in a day.
