Etsy Listing - Wooden Toy Car - Hot Rod Freaky Ford - 1927 Ford Coupe - Model-T - Baby Blue - Amber Shellac - Black - Pine

Not one but three wooden toy cars this time. I'm slowly weaning my way off the one of a kind having fun experimenting thing. It's just not productive in a production environment make toys this way. If I want to ever get enough stock on hand to take to a show I need to make a lot of toys in a wider range. 

I recently had a custom order for for the 32 Sedan Hot Rod with this color scheme. Since some one actually requested this instead of buying one of the cars that was already in the store I though there might be some demand for this color combination and I like it. So we get three baby blue 27 T Coupe Hot Rods and only one listing.

I made the bodies out of pine and and hand brushed all the acrylic paint and shellac. The body was sanded smooth but no other attempt was made to hide the wood grain. The person I did the custom order for wanted to see the wood grain. I've had other parents tell me that they like the wood grain showing.

I like the amber shellac on the wheels. I think it looks great and it is very easy to apply. If tried acrylic black paint on the wheels. The flat black just looks wrong and where I've tried clear coating over the flat black I get results I don't like much. It also increases the number of steps required to finish the wheels. Shellac is pretty much a one step process. I've painted some wheels colors probably will do it again for some special cases, However, I think shellac is going to be my go to color for wheels. 

I recently sold a Play Pal Bat Car with red wheels that I originally wasn't going to put in the store. I though some one might by it. To my surprise it sold in about two weeks after being posted. It was just the opposite the body was amber shellac and the wheels were painted.
