Hand Painted Decals - Wed Feb 27 2019 02:29 AM

Okay guys I have been using my art talents on a different kind of canvas lately! I never really have liked the look of decals on pumps, so I started hand painting decals on some of my pumps, because that is what they would have done back in the day, and I am in love with how they are turning out! I want to try and get my name out there for hand painting decals on panels, so if you or if you know someone that would be interested, please pm me! Enjoy the pictures!

Konnor, you may also want to go get some rusty doors off of some old cars at a junkyard and offer your service to local restaurants. Paint their names on the doors for wall decor.

Just a thought,
Steve

Nice job Konner! Are you using lettering quills or a fitch? Fitch's are much easier on a textured/rough surface. Quills & flats for smooth. If you haven't already & keep this up look into One Shot lettering enamel.

The thought of hand painting decals has never even crossed my mind. I spent 20+ years traveling 4 states hand painting billboards on site. Not counting the countless number of walls, windows, roofs & towers I've done. If it stood still long enough I've probably lettered it. Not often, but I still get talked into doing a restaurant wall or something they insist on being old school.
