Every surfer is different and customizing the artwork is an important part of ordering a custom surfboard. At Formula Energy one of our favourite parts of the day is doing Resin Tints. Adding the colour to the resin is not done on a whim , its like being a mad professor , measuring and mixing different colours , pigments and tints into the resin .
Blue Swish Resin Tint
Sometimes you nail the application and colour scheme and sometimes you don't but its always done in good spirit and with a bit of creative flair . Every time you do a resin tint you are creating a functional piece of artwork that is as individual as you are !
The above "Blue Swish" we love it ...
Blue Purple and White Resin Tint combination , moving away from the "swirls" of most resin tints we did a more straight lines effect on this board.
With the resin tint designs each artwork is unique and customised , by choosing three different colours then with a special process of applying the colour with different techniques you can achieve all sorts of of "looks".
If you want a unique look to your surfboard resin work is the way to go . As every board comes out different by mixing different colours and altering the applications whether it be "swirls" or straight lines or combination of both .
New Resin Tint artwork, using a combination of black base with grey and white tints highlights to get the effect of a charcoal denim look.
Below is close up of the Black Denim , which is really hard to capture in an image on the computer screen but up close and "live" looks amazing with a real depth of colour. If you are looking for something unique on your next surfboard then resin tint artwork is the way to go .
With the Resin Tints / Artwork we do our best to replicate as you see it on the computer screen or surfboard. But reality is it always comes out a little different .
Which we think is cool as , it makes ever surfboard a truly individual unique functioning piece of artwork .
From designing stage of the file to shaping the blank , laminating ,adding fins boxes then sanding , then to final finish coats . Many hands touch a surfboard , in that respect it truly is a hand made product .
