Sewing machine decals
Here's the latest on the 28 re-do. The singer decals are purchased. The birds and flowers are home made decals, made with the packing tape decal method (here). However, I used stickers, and despite what the ladies on the link say, I have used inkjet, newsprint, all kinds of things. Before I made the decals, I painted highlights on the stickers with gold paint. The packing tape decals are easier to work with, as they are thick. Downside, of course, is that more layers of clearcoat will be needed to blend in the edges.
Have more to do, but it is tedious work, and I can't do it when I'm tired or distracted, which lately seems to be a lot of the time!
So, uhm, everyone gets it, right? Singer sewing machine? bluebirds? Singers? I crack myself up.
