Hi Friends

I am sending one of the Corvettes to a 4 year old client who's Mom says he just loves Corvette, and his favorite color is Red, so this was perfect, and it was built already which is good for me..

This corvette is built at full size from Toymakingplans.com, is made from MDF and painted with Black regular craft paint, and Red Metallic craft paint, then two coats of Triple Thick Crystal Clear coat.

That looks really nice. I like the red stripe with black. Great that it was ready to go. I've taken your advise and make multiples.

Very nice.  I like how you round over each section.  Colors are great!!!  Those metallic paints are wonderful to work with.  Your red metallic looks red, the one I have looks more pink, can you share the brand you use.

Hi All

Cindy thanks for the kind words about the paints, but the photos are deceiving.  My red Metallie's look pinkish as well.  I use FolkArt Metallic Plaid Red.  I have not found a redder red in the Metallic's yet.

If anybody has found a real red Metallic, please let us know.  Thanks

Ed and Dastoymaker:  Thanks, I have found for me anyway, making multiples makes good sense, because if booth come out great you have a back-up for the next order.  Heaven forbid you make a mistake on one (which I am sure I am the only one who does) you have one ready without starting over.

Again, thanks for the nice comments.

Hi Cindy

That is funny.  I am thinking about mixing it with a regular bright red craft paint, or just using the red craft paint when I want a real red color.

The word thinking some times gets me in trouble however. [cool]
