I am repainting my art car and am writing this so I won’t forget what works for the next time!
This is my current paint job. The yellow and pink are One Shot, the blue is the color of the car. I used painters tape to mask off the areas. I wish I had masked off all the rubber, too. Most of the details were created using Sharpie Paint Pens. They worked great for a few months but eventually faded to white chalk. I Mod Podged them to make them more permanent but that didn’t work. The chalky residue washed off completely with Goof Off. Which is a nice feature if you want to make a new incarnation of your art car often. I used stick on labels to mask off the peace signs and the hearts before painting the car the first, so they are permanent.
Goof Off also works well for cleaning your hands and brushes and any mistakes while wet. I mixed the One Shot 9 parts paint and one part hardener. The paint thickens slightly with the hardener and a skin will form overnight even in a small sealed container like the tiny mason jar I used. Mix the paint with hardener in small quantities that you can use up within a few hours. Wrap your paint brush in plastic wrap if you are taking a short break.
I will post picture when I am finished!
Jill Johnson from originally from Venus Salon in Houston, and now at her own shop on White Oakhttp://bombshellhairshop.com gave me the skinny back in 2008 when I made my first art car.
The first thing you have to do is bleach your hair platinum! Not blonde, not ash, but white as snow is best.
For me with my very dark brown hair with lots of grey, that means 5 one hour sessions of whitening over a week or more.
My hair is stubborn and goes orange, yellow, straw and finally white. The trick here is not to damage your hair. I do it at home but if you don’t have the know how, this part is best handled by a pro.
I usually spend a week as a platinum blonde as it is interesting to see how people treat me as a blonde as opposed to a brunette.
Next comes the color. I have tried many brands of color and love Rage N Color. It is very bright and lasts a long time. Manic Panic is also good but fades faster. But if you want color that really lasts try the new Ion Color Brilliance Brights Semi-Permanent Hair Color in all the bright colors. Warning! This stuff lasts!!!
Pink in all brands fades fastest of all the colors. After that in least fade resistance is purple. Blue lasts fairly well and teal lasts longest.
After years of living in the suburbs, driving a normal grey car and living in a grey house, I love having colorful hair, driving a colorful car and living in a colorful house!
It makes me happy!
