Well…It has been WAY to long since I have written a post. I got distracted by life, but realized I had a few projects I’ve been waiting to blog for a long time.
My nephew loves superheroes. So I decided to do a Captain American car redo for his present. I must say, I think it turned out great.
A few notes about what I did. I started by disassembling the car the best I could, I found this at goodwill for $15.oo. It kind of just snapped apart. I’m not going to lie, I was a little worried about it all fitting back together. Then I sanded this lightly. I think this is key although I would use a very light sand paper, I used a little rougher one and you could kind of see the scratch marks. I did use my silhouette to do the cutting, I used chipboard/old cereal boxes as the templates. We did a lot of touch up painting, because we had trouble with bleeding. I would definitely use vinyl next time :). I made the shield with a dog frisbee and cut out the shapes with my silhouette then modge podged over it.
Before it was kind of a mess 😦 Sad little car!
The front wheels didn’t come off so I covered them with plastic before spray painting.
My sweet hubby helping me!
Tape this with really good painters tape!!
