    Here are the prototype blends (the first handpainted ones).

    I included some macro shots of some imperfections, i.e.: colour bleeds and bubbles. One thing I have to say is that they seem to stick to my nose haha

    yeah, they were the first spray painted prototypes! I didn't really expect that many bubbles, but I guess a prototype is a prototype after all! :)

    Very nice. I personally gotta say those are cooler than the actual releases. Very few prototypes to the however many actual releases there were.

    So blends/fades are painted? I thought they did something during the manufacturing to blend different colours within a crystal clear frame?

    that, I do not know. These seem spray painted though :) Apparently by the dude (i don't know his name) who does all the designs at Oakley...
