Do you have someone in your life who loves Hot Rods and Halloween? If so, this toy car might be a perfect gift for them. The orange and black color scheme is one of the best paint jobs I have ever done. It is a beautiful toy, but it could also be the perfect man cave or nursery decor.

This is probably the glossiest finish I have ever put on any toy. The clear coat on the top of the already bright orange paint makes the color pop. If I were to do this over again, I would start with a white Zinsser B-I-N shellac-based White Interior Primer and Sealer to seal everything, and the white background under the orange paint would really make the colors pop.

The base color is Krylon ColorMaster Paint + Primer Gloss Pumpkin Orange Orange spray paint from a rattle can I purchased at WalMart. The topcoat is Rust-Oleum Gloss Clear Triple Thick Glaze Spray Paint I purchased at Home Depot.

I don't use much rattle can paint. In the environment I have to work in is not suitable for this. Most of the time, the humidity is too high or the temperature is too hot or too cold for the paint to work properly. I have to spray outside, and the weather prevents this from happing. One day I hope to have a spray booth for painting my toys. I will probably not make any more toys with this paint scheme in the near future.

I have made similar bears to this one, but I was not happy with the design. The keys were very near the same size and shape, and they did not lock the puzzle together very well. I change the design so the keys would be distinctly different shapes and locked together well. It looks a bit odd, but it works great.

The bear puzzle is cut from a 1x12 pine board using a scroll saw. The surfaces of the board are sanded before the pattern is applied to remove any defects and to provide a smooth surface for the wood to slide on the saw table.

I apply 3M ScotchBlue tape to the wood before adding the pattern. The tape is easy to remove and helps prevent burning and lets me remove the pattern without using toxic solvents. If the patterns are glued directly to the wood you have to do something to get the glue residue off. 3M ScotchBlue painters tape does not leave any residue and it sticks very well.

I print my patterns with a laser printer and apply 3M spray adhesive to the back of the paper. After the pattern is applied to the wood I cut out the puzzle with a scroll saw.

Using good quality blades very little sanding is required. Usually, all I need to do is smooth the fuzzies off the edges. I do most of this sanding with a Klingspor sanding mop mounted in a Harbor Freight drill press.
