why did i even try this?
i have no creative ability whatsoever. i can build a computer from scratch in 10 minutes. i can fix any electrical problem, but **** i never should have even attempted this. it seems so simple right? just painting. well im thankful that when it's finally done none of you will ever see it in person, and i can just take a very lo-res picture. hah
seriously though. the black spray painting is barely even. ive already tried and failed 3 times on using the stencils with spray paint. took me like 10 mins per stencil to figure out how to cover it completely so that paint didn't get on everything, yet it still managed to. the paint got in places that was covered!
so i had to keep repainting it black.
so then i went to the store and just bought hand paint. the guy picked it out for me, and it's main advertising point is that it's guaranteed to not leave brush strokes. well ****, it might as well be advertised as "if you want the brush stroke effect, use this paint." it looks horrible, and ive done 3+ coats. i haven't even taken the stencils off yet but i know it's going to look bad. i can already see several places where the paint went under the stencil.
*sigh* i just wanted this to come out good for my g/f.
edit: well... it looks even worse than i could have expected. they came out horrible. for a cheap project this is adding up.
4 cans of krylon x $4 each = 16
1 small can of paint = $3.50
1 paint brush = $0.50
stencils = $5
all a waste.
*sigh again... sigh*
