I'm pretty sure you eat something with alot of spicy mustard, drink 1 case of keystone beer then eat something green. Wait 1 minute, then stand over your gas tank.

The auction said they were NOS from the factory and Honda made a run of them and they were selling for a pricey tag compaired to other tanks from that year/model.

I've saw model car builders using it about 10-15 years ago, and they have been doing guitars this way for 2-5 years, but it hasn't really caught on with the bike hobby yet.

I'm dying to use the technique, but have been doing mostly street rods lately. I've got to find a small project to try. Maybe some of those tank blanks.

It is paint, that is poured into a water tank. The paint, being oil based, floats on top of the water, They stir it around to create patterns, then lower the object in, moving it around to cause more changes in the patterns.
