As a mom of a boy who loves all things transportation, I get to play cars a lot. I can name almost all the characters from the Disney Cars movies. I play cars, trains, and planes everyday.
One day my son and I were playing cars. I noticed he kept pushing this one dump trunk to the side. When I asked him if he wanted to race that car, he told me he can't play because he doesn't have eyes. He was the only car on the floor without eyes. I told my son I would give the truck eyes so he could play too.
I painted eyes on the car, and gave it to my little boy. He was sooo excited. Within minutes he had gathered every car he owned that was without eyes. He gave me all of the non Disney movie cars that he had. He said they needed eyes too. So now I am in the business of making eyes for cars.
Whenever I tell this story I am asked how I did it. Here is a tutorial:
First grab normal cars...Hotwheels for example.
I use whatever paint I have around.
Decide where you want the eyes then paint a white base coat.
Add some black for definition
Now add eyes and you are done!
