Any ideas on the technique being used on these type of laminations? Have been seeing a lot of these the last year.
Done the same way Hunter does it . With a straw. Only difference is you blow. You don't snort. Foam stain.
That which can be assorted without evidence was read in an illegal magazine.
Pretty sure it's in the lamination. The darker colors finding the outer edge of the "bubbles" makes me think some sort of additive is being used...first color to hit the foam doesn't seem to be happening. I could be wrong, but check out the weave in this closeup...
I have no idea. But it reminds me of alcohol ink on paper. Maybe ink directly on foam, thrn flooded with small volumes of untinted alcohol before the ink dries.

Maybe? Just a Maybe? It is art that is printed on Fiberglass Cloth. Boardlams??
Cleanlines used to spray a rattle can paint on the sanded hot coat then shake a paint brush with lacquer thinner on it and it would do something like what the pics show. It would look boiling and bubbly.
all the best

I think McDing is right. In the close up, the dye is in the grid of the fabric.
There is a dye technique called ice dye, where you cover the fabric with ice, then sprinkle dye powder over it.
If it was a resin tint abstract lamination you'd see a double saturation at the rails, laps and any deck or tail patches. The patterns wouldn't line up at all between deck and bottom. That leads me to think this is a foam stain.
Another possibility is that the lam might include a pale barely-there single color tint which might even out the contrasts of an underlying foam stain.
Here is another and definitely has the color in lamination also, but the laps on the bottom aren't showing and top does look to have continued patterns past the lap.
Gdaddy--Very True. Hadn't put enough thought into it. But you are absolutely right. My thinking is one layer of Printed 4 oz. cloth, with a second layer of clear 4 oz over that. Top and bottom. I did a printed cloth layup last year and that's the way I did it. Don't have pics anymore, but it was an Octopus art job. When I did that one I had to cut the print perfectly at the apex and then lapped the clear over that. If I were doing a deck and bottom I would line the deck up with the bottom pattern wise. So that it appeared continuous. I'm gonna stick with "Classic". I guess I'm what Yater described himself as being; A "Traditionalist". I don't care what color a board is as long as I get plenty of waves and the board is shaped well enough to ride them.
