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
- 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.
