Garage Marker

A friend recently bought herself a bright yellow jeep and since today was her birthday, I decided to make her a placement marker for the garage wall to mark her spot.
I blended some Rustoleum spray paints to match the color best I could. She loves it.

That’s adorable! What did you do to the tires to make them look pebbled?

I suggested this as their new state motto, they didn’t like it;

Thank you. I did a base layer of Rustoleum textured paint and then painted with a blend of black and gray.

That is tight. Did you use spray on the whole thing or just for the textured tires?

The entire thing is cut out just like you would a puzzle. I then take all of the pieces of the same color, “double tape” stick them to a large piece of cardboard and spray paint them.
I paint same colored pieces all at the same time as I am usually blending my cans to achieve the right color and if you do them separately it is near impossible to get them to match each other (let alone your target color). For things like the tires, I do a base coat of textured paint and then the color.

I did the fenders in gray because she is getting ready to switch out the ones on her’s with some gray rubber ones
