So I painted my car the other day...

So I painted my car the other day. There was paint left over from a bathroom project, and I'd been wanting to do this for ages. And I did.

First I drew the initial shape once on the side of the car in pencil. Then I cut out a stencil to match it, and pencilled the other 15 waves.

After that came the painting in two different colours. It was a baking hot day, but I got a bit of shade by parking it under the veranda.

The project took less time than I thought it would, but cost more energy: all the crouching left me with muscle cramps for the next three days!

I might drive an old rattletrap - 20 years and counting - but it may as well look good, eh?
