Video on applying Dupli-Color Hot Tires paint markers. Red, White and Yellow.

These look a lot like Testors paint markers and I have been looking for a light blue to do my '74 Collegiate tires. The Testors stuff is just enamel I believe, so in theory spray paint might work. I'm going to give it a try.

He just said..

"If you get any on the Black and you need to get it off,
just use some Acetone to remove it"

Acetone is "Nail Polish Remover"
Acetone is also what removes Acrylic Paint..
It will not remove Alkyd or laquer Paints..
Acetone will ONLY remove Acrylic Paint.

so, that being said, The paint Pens he is using
are Acrylic.
And Micheals Craft Center carries Acrylic Pens in MANY
colors..I just bought 3 pens last week and made T-Shirts with my Kids.

And The craft center has MULTIPLE COLORS.

Thanks for sharing the Link and Video.
I am going to do a Sample Tire in The Pen's I have,

Kev.

If you want to make white walls, try white shoe polish. It takes a whole lotta coats but it works pretty good.

Here's a sample...

I have had good luck boiling small plastic parts in
RIT Tie Dye colors ...I was thinking of boiling up some
ugly fuschia to tint the white walls on my commuter rat.

When I do it, Ill post results...Im trying to think of a way to
boil the tire. Right now it appears I might have to get a HUGE
pot like you would boil a 25lb buzzard in and stand there and
rotate the tire while the mixure is boiling. This is one undertaking
best done when my wife is going to be out for a while ! :mrgreen:
