How to make.... Freehand writings on vehicles

Hi all!!!

I want to show you how i make writings on vehicles....
It's a fast and easy technique, but the result is very nice...
Let's Start!!!

First of all you must select the writings you want to paint.

Then you must print them (better on squared paper) paying attention to the font size respect to the area where you have to place it.

Then using a pencil, blackens the back of the sheet, to create a kind of carbon paper

Now it's time to positioning your writing and fix it to the surface with paper tape

Pass over the writing with a pen...

Remove the paper and you'll now have the guideline for your freehand painting...

The final result, will looks like this

Thanks for reading!
