The Painter's Playbook offers a glance at the contemporary refinish world as seen through the eyes of some of its most colorful and celebrated characters. The automotive world continues to move at breakneck speed, and the collision repair and refinish industries are adapting in new and, in some cases, profound ways in order to keep up with the growing demand of today’s vehicular complexities.
From training and resources to products and services, the Painter’s Playbook is here to show what the paint industry truly has to offer. The need for valuable and skilled tradespeople is only growing and some of the painters featured here are on the front lines of that movement, encouraging young people—men and women alike—to follow their curiosity into a career that is as challenging as it is fun, as demanding as it is rewarding, equal parts detailed and open to interpretation (provided you have the right gear, color, flake and gusto!).
Sponsored by PPG Industries Inc. and SATA/Dan-Am companies, the Painter’s Playbook is intended to act as a guide for aspiring and current painters, and to serve as a resource for what’s available to those who like paint, enjoy working on cars and desire to learn a little more.
