The Custom Painting Idea Book by renowned custom painter JoAnn Bortles, may just be the most comprehensive guide to custom painting on bookshelves today. This book is written for both novices and experts alike and is the must-have companion for vehicle owners looking to custom paint.

For vehicle owners with little or no knowledge of custom painting, this book teaches which style, technique, or scheme will suit the unique demands of the vehicle and budget. Text and imagery about color, design, and how they work together are instrumental in building the foundation for this craft.

For experts in the custom painting arena, this book is a uniquely valuable resource.

Chapters cover such important topics as what makes a great paint job, determining the right colour for your project, the right type of graphics and design; flames, old paint styles and the list goes on.

This book also contains artwork from some of the most respected custom painters in North America, including some work from Canadian master painters Fitto and Goodeve.
