My handlebar's stem start losing all it's paint. So i decided to make as new with a fresh repaint.
Since i'am really critic about my work i want your opinion.
Do you like it or i just ruined? Should i try again starting from zero?
Daaaamn! is too hard to use a brush for tiny details!

Starting from there:

I think it gives it a personalized homey feel to it. I used to paint model cards and metal figurines so I know the tiny details can be challenging.

Yep! Making was very hard to do , even if you think everything has been made from paint points...
I'am very undecided if remake it or leave it as it is.

First try made me smile, but not in a bad way. I kinda' like the second one and think it looks good with the colors on you bike.

first attempt:
really unsteady lines and some how paint bleed when it comes to the black. i suggest if you want to try something like this to use paint pens in the meantime until you make sure you have a steady hand.

second attempt:

muuuuch better, simple to do yet very effective visually.
