Finding Time to Paint the Singer 66


I finally found time to start painting the old salvaged Singer 66! I'm painting completely free hand, which means there are a lot of irregularities in the design (it is pretty funky). Seriously, I'm just kind of winging it - although I am basing the designs on the Singer Red Eye decal set. This is the same way I tackled painted the last custom paint job, the Singer 15-30 hand crank. So, this will hopefully end up looking just as awesome.

You know what I'll be up to this weekend!

Love it especially the red paint. Think my hubby needs to help me strip and repainting a 66 I just seen on gumtree here in Australia

It was a fun project Tracey! I'd love to see pics if you paint your machine!
