Dia de los Muertos Madness!

It was the best of weekends, it was the worst of weekends…

We ripped the bonnet off Lisa Max’s 1990 Holden Apollo and proceeded to gas ourselves silly spray painting it in a confined space. The outcome was significantly less brain cells and this rockin’ dia de los meurtos retro tattoo skull.

The main idea behind the design was the ease of painting, it had to use minimal layers of paint, be simple and very cool. We used spray paint for the background and then Moltow paint pens to paint in all the details, like the mostly epically annoying paint-by-number ever.

A few coats of clear coat went on very last to make it look mint and keep the paint on for hopefully more than a week and she was good to roll!

For the anal retentive among us, I submit some thrilling detail images below, so you can scrutinize the painstaking detail that went into this fine piece of automobile ass art.

If anyone else has any cars that need a little something special, and are brave enough to have a piece of priceless art plastered on them, contact me. It would help if you were in the Perth area, unless you want to fly us over.

  1. Good job on the car and thanks for the description of your trials… I like reading about the masochistic things people do to make something pretty.
