I recently got a kendama painted by bcmaddog and decided to leave a few words about the work.
First of all, it looks absolutely amazing. I will get pictures probably this weekend, but if you follow him on Instagram you saw how well he did. I could not be more happy looks wise. It is a black with white speckle, with a white fade spot (super cool).
Now the paint itself is not grippy though, it is slippery. This could be good or bad. In my case, I’m still starting out, so I guess a bit of tackiness would be nice, but I can always make it tacky myself :).
Now the paint is very durable. He does use many clear coats to ensure the paint stays, and it does. I have been beating this thing up for a bit and can’t even see the dents, much less any paint coming off the wood.
That my friends is basically it. Not too much info, I’m sure if I knew more about kendama I could say more :).
Pics to come.
