Say you wanted the lettering red, and the engine green...

You could paint the whole engine red, then paint it again in green leaving just the lettering in red...

That way you avoid the use of small brushes... genius!!! Suspect

lettering.

Post by earlsinclare on Sun Sep 20 2009, 11:35

paint your engine the colour you require, then with the chosen colour for the lettering apply it with a fine sponge using a dabbing motion. don't put too much paint on the sponge try first with the sponge nearly dry. any over painting can be covered after with a small brush with the paint from the engine colour. i've used this technique on my own engines and i am a trained signwriter.
hope this helps Earl.
