sweet im so painting my poles soon!
i painted one an it turned out super shitty so i didnt bother on the second one so now i go no poles
so remeber if you fuck your poles you can always just not use them
you can make some sick designs with hot glue, and tape
try this site for ideas http://www.e-lacrosse.com/stech905.html
it's a lacrosse website, so whenever you see the word dye replace it with paint, and replace the word lacrosse head with ski poles,
oh, and clearcoat the shit out of them
I started painting my ski poles... I am going to do the second primer coat in half an hour and then il be painting the base coat in neon pink and then puting masking tape for my designes and painting the rest glossy black and then topping that off with clear coats. so basicaly my poles will be black with neon pink designes...
Im also painting some skis ( 07/08 line invaders) Im painting them for a school project and then im going to trick them out for my pesonal use. Their going to be wood pattern plus a bunch of designes I will do later
If you want to put a lasting finish on that don't use spray paint, use something acrylic like tremclad. Thin the paint out with mineral spirits. If you use this kind of paint you don't need to primer it because it's supposed to be painted right onto metal. Do a couple coats, wetsand, repeat untill shiny enough, and then if you want a real sick finish sand it down with really high grit sandpaper, 1000 or 1500, and buff that shit.
Someone posted this method on a car forum a while ago and I know multiple street racer kids who have put dank finishes on their ricers with this, almost up to factory standards. I myself did something reletively similar (slightly more effective but a lot more complicated and time consuming) to this to paint the fender on my old civic before I sold it and it came out really well. I figure if it works on cars then it would probably work on poles for sure, and likely last you more than a season.
better explaination of it is here
