How to Paint Scallops on Cars


Personal touches on a car can be made to either the interior or the exterior. For restaurants, catering companies, or the dedicated beach goer, the scallop is symbolic. Widely known for being a delicious part of the seafood family, a scallop can be a cute touch to any vehicle. When adding on a purchased or pre-made sticker isn't enough, consider painting your own scallops on your car.

Things You'll Need

  • Newspapers
  • Sandpaper
  • Krylon Indoor/ Outdoor Primer® (any desired color)
  • Scallop stencil
  • Krylon Indoor/ Outdoor Paint® (any desired color)
  • Lay out the newspaper around the area in which you will be spraying your paint.

  • Take your sandpaper and rub onto the surface where you want your scallop. Sandpapering may not be needed on older vehicles.

  • Spray on your Krylon Indoor/ Outdoor Primer® and let it dry for 10 to15 minutes.

  • Lay the scallop stencil flat onto the surface and spray it with the Krylon Indoor/ Outdoor Paint® and wait another 10 to15 minutes for it to dry.

  • Wait a full seven days for the paint to dry completely before exposing your car to the elements.

Tips & Warnings

  • Wearing thin plastic gloves can protect you against spraying anything on your hands.
  • Wear a face mask to avoid inhaling any spray paint.
