Ok so here it is Im another member of the now Legendary LOS BASTARDOS and Seb has been hassling me to put my piece in.So after much dragging of feet,crying and basically playing dead he has talked me into it.This is a first for me and I have be known to talk the odd bit of bollocks so I should fit right in.
You must have seen all the Kustom clubs showing of their gang related plaques.Well after an evening of much alcohol abuse we all desided that we too should be showing our colours.Yes there are companies who specialize in making these gang plaques,Yes their prices are very reasonable, yes they will do a cracking job in both design and build.Any gearhead would be proud to hang one of these top quality plaques from their rides.But here in LOS BASTARDOS we say "FUCK THAT SHIT,WE'RE GOING TO MAKE OUR OWN".I mean after all we no experience in casting and as for design well read them and weep I got a CSE in art back in the mid 80's.I think you will agree that obviously we're going to be naturals.Well when I say "we" I mean actually mean "me" as some how in the drunken haze I seem to have volunteered myself as the "GIVE ME THAT MALTEN METAL BLOKE WITH 3RD DEGREE BURNS".Oh yea theres nothing finer than stupidity and malten metal.Its a match made in heaven.
So after hours of scribling I finally came up with a design.It was an empty bottle of Tequilla ,LOS BASTARDOS in a mexican font and at the bottom a smoking gun.Excellent so next was the making off a template,I tried wood no good,next stone which was way too hard,I was starting to lose the will too live.Theres only so many times I can draw something out before I deside to go and do something else.Ended up making one out of clay and cutting it back to just LOS BASTARDOS.I love the whole tequilla / gun bit but maybe we should walk before we run.So im saving that one for a few casts down.So Ive now latexed that template ,pured hot wax in it and I am waiting for the wax cast to cool as we speak.Maybe paying someone to do it might have been the wiser move.But here at LOS BASTARDOS our glass of ignorance is over flowing so we're back to the whole "FUCK THAT" bit.
The big malten metal night should be coming soon if I can figure out how to do it and the sand imprint works out right.So fingerscrossed and I'll let you know how it goes..
Ive also been tricked into doing a "WHOS WHO WHOS RIDE"in the LOS BASTARDOS .But that will have to wait for now.But I am on it lads so back off you gay boys
