Ya know those times when you start picking at something, and next thing you know you are gett’n a little carried away? Well, that happened. I was cleaning up Stinky ( Not a metaphor ) and all this white dust was all over the place. Well as it turns out the fake white stripes are just flaking off. So, I grabbed a razor blade and just cranked.
So here is the question. Do I keep it cleaned off and let the imperfection of the little darkness stay and create a more distressed look? OR
Paint a slightly darker lines than the red to create the effect of seams?
Paint the entire deck and stripes darker. And make it all slick looking?
NOW, here is a thing, These never had white stripes. just a seamed painted deck. The seams were red. And in my eye. A slight darker line would make it look more real. The deck is fiberglassed over so its all smooth. UGH. And I dont want it to look perfect. HAHAHAHAHAAHAHA, ya like that would happen.
My belief is that a huge part of Stinky’s charm is her flaws. I love them and she IS a metaphor for me!
