I used Gonzo's technique and materials and painted my Legend Pros. Turned out totally sweet looking.

My Dragons are holding up surprisingly well, with the 'ol Krylon touch."Have fun, get a flyrod, and give the worm dunkers the finger when you start double hauling." ~Lumpy

Update - How they lookin'?
So after some days on them, here's what my painted skis look like. Remember, your milage may vary. When I tele my skis bash past one another a lot more than they would if I alpined - thus the inside edge of the topsheet gets a lot of wear-and-tear. Also, I spent a few days swinging these things around in the glades at Jay and Burke, which means even more ski-to-ski, ski-to-tree, or ski-to-rock contact than is probably normal for a non-eastern skier.
ps - STOKE!

There ya go. 120 days on these bad boys.
The tail damage is primarily from riding the chair and one ski rubbing the paint off the top of the other. The damage immediately behind the dildo is from using my pole to get outta the bindings.
As you can see in the shovel, the paint withstood temps and vibrations very well.
In conclusion, I bet the paint on the tails would have held up had I put a clear coat over the black paint.Balls Deep in the 'Ho

Dragons held up pretty good. Sidewalls chipped a little (I painted down to the edges) and various chips and scratches from skis chattering together skiing bumps and playing in the park. All in all, unless you look at them up close, you can't tell."Have fun, get a flyrod, and give the worm dunkers the finger when you start double hauling." ~Lumpy

Slim's pics don't really do the job justice. They look awesome in person. Especially with the polished tip and tail on the LPs."I knew in an instant that the three dollars I had spent on wine would not go to waste."

yeah mine is holding up great. the skis haven't been skied - i gave them to a buds sister who blew her knee. board doesn't get the contact skis do with eachother, but looks great nonetheless. the rubber stuff doesn't really chip, which is good. from the looks of the other paint jobs, it is WAY more durable. it does hold snow though, so i would second slim's comments - great for inbounds where it doesn't really matter but probably not great for touring - simply because of stuck snow weight - i can't imagine the paint stuff added much at all. i would guess how much, but it would be straight out of my ass. however much a 1/3 of the paint in a small paint can weighs....Craig Kelly is my co-pilot.

Bump for good beta and useful thread.

Gonna paint another pair, I'm a thinkin'. So, what's the consensus on primer? Yes/No? I didn't use it on the Dragons (black paint over an old black topsheet), but this next pair is blue (Pocket Rockets) and I am going to go all white. I am going to do some graphics in black, though (over the white).
Whatcha think? (about the primer question)"Have fun, get a flyrod, and give the worm dunkers the finger when you start double hauling." ~Lumpy
