Herc Fede quits. Sells method.

SSO thread
Here is an E-Mail Herc apparently has sent out:
Quote:
Hi Everyone,
.
This is my official Goodbye to you all....thank you for the opportunity to share my multicolor creations with you the past several years. And thank you to those who own my original one-of-a-kind swirls.
.
I wish you and all your families the best. The past few years have been very difficult for me and my family and I am officially out of doing this type of graphic art for the web.

As a thank you to all who have appreciated my work and personal style of swirls, I am offering a one-time chance to learn my advanced techniques. All details can be found at:
Herc Multicolor Method - Welcome
.
All the best to you all,
Herc Fede
So... We've lost Al and Herc now. It seems ATD is getting back into it. Let's hope for the best for this industry. I wish all swirlers, including Herc and Al the best.

Raffle this. Some of the Jemsite swirlers could put this knowledge to good use.

I hope Ernie at ET Guitars has mine in Australia all safe and sound and is half way through clearing it...

Re: Herc Fede quits. Sells method.

my pmc is on the site too under andrews pmc.
i sold it to alaskabat though.
it is also the pic in the banner.

even if he gives the method to everyone i still think swirls will be special just more of them.
i dont think he will give the method to one person because the economy is so bad noone can make money off swirls right now.
its time for everyone to know and call it a normal paintjob , then we will see whos the best swirler for real that it is an even playing field.
more innovation as well.

Re: Herc Fede quits. Sells method.

I would happily pay 150 to see Hercs video on swirling with neons. I just think 300 is to rich for my blood haha. Anyone want to go in 1/2? My Herc pmc is in the neon gallery

i have spent 5,000 on testing since 2005 .
so 300.00 is a great investment and tons less frustration.
im only 75 percent close to fedes work at that.

im sure that so many people know about this now that it will be one of the cheaper options now.
which means for him to make money he will have to wait until all is paid before he releases it as to keep people from pirating or sharing the info.

It would not be impossible for him to make every video special, just someting like a different picture in the middle, slight edit of some kind that would differ on all videos sold. I don't think he expects to sell loads of these. Then, if it gets shared, it would be easy to go back and see who shared it, and the huge claim would be incoming to the one breaking the contract of not sharing.

I do not think Herc is cynical enough to do that.

I do think the raffle thing would be good though. I don't need to see how it's done, but I would very much like a wider expertise when it comes to swirls. More people doing it can be good for the end user.

Bry, I saw that!!! That was cool, I had not seen that video I dont think.

Seeing that my guitar was listed in ET's site too, it really made me want to hold onto more because IF this it, there wont be another like it.

I really thought about getting the materials and technique list.

Isnt 300 just for print material about it? I thought the video package was $1000

Re: Herc Fede quits. Sells method.

No it's 299 per video and if you want all 5 then it's 1,000. The vids are the best option, fact being you can rewatch them, but I voted for the printout because it's all I could afford. Once he goes public jemsite is going to blow up with custom projects, mine included ahhh I can't wait.

Re: Herc Fede quits. Sells method.

I mainly just want to swirl car parts and things lol. I'm only really wanting the supply list for his neons. Everything else, I can figure out on my own. I tried to get the written option for the neons and I got a response it was on video and video only
