That looks like something I would do, but I would be WAY too scared to screw up and I would probably end up with like 20 Drafts to make it perfect, and i wouldnt know where to start

Once you start it, there definitely isn't much room for error, other than just making an entire section black. A lot of pre-planning to get the negative space figured out was required.

I think it looks brill' , i honestly do . But if you look at your 5th picture down , i think it is , there's loads of "sharpie" pens so i just thought maybe you'd have used the "john hancock" sharpie as opposed to BB .

Holy mother of jesus that is disgusting.
Sand it off and go back to the original. I cant believe any one would even dare attempt to step out of the box and try something new and daring.
That is just preposterous. Shame upon thee.

HAHAHAHAH jk amber I love it. It looks so awesome. Except now your hood looks better than the rest of your car cuz of that new clear coat. Complete awesomeness. GL with the rest of it

Oooh! Those were all the Sharpie pens it took to do just the hood... The only difference between them is the tip size.

They have silver too.... And yellow. Also, its just an oil-based paint. Any paint pen would work as long as the paint is oil-based. I stuck with Sharpie because the black was proven to be that deep color, and it wouldn't be a very good idea to attempt to switch brands halfway through the project. The color variations... Ew.
