Anyone remember this? The rear side panel which was ripped from my beloved Ford Focus by a dumbo taxi driver who couldn't see through his windscreen because it was misted up. The rest of the car went to the great scrapyard in the sky, but I picked up this bit from the road and brought it home. It has been hanging on my living room wall ever since.
Time for a makeover I think. Now what can I do with it to jazz it up a bit. Get the little paint pots out and the brushes. My first idea was to finger paint it, but I didn't like the finish, so I stippled it with a brush. I like a stippled surface, you can hide uneven brush marks by stippling. I once did the kitchen walls in a previous house by stippling to cover up the uneven plaster.
Wadya think, cool eh! I love it.
It is hard to paint lines with straight edges on a curved surface, trying to keep my shakey hand still. I need one of those sticks with a soft ball on the end to use as a rest.
