Painted in white on black to get the strongest possible red for the finished dial.
The painted dial seems like an ongoing project, here is the painting process so far for the most recent's a replacement for the thinner version i did last year that got damaged and buckled in the hot south london sun a couple of weeks ago. It's for a 1km 4 up dial so it will have four hands instead of the regular 2. Four hands means Four bikes racing. A roller racing Madison.....

Handpainted Rollapaluza Dials keeping me busy in the early hours after Ione has gone to bed...i got down to Herne Hill Velodrome to see the fruits of my labour. I can see the improvement in each one....they all look pretty nice from a distance though which is how they are mainly seen.
