We henna artists sure like to adorn things! Painting cars makes our work a bit more permanent.
You’ll tend to see four main styles of henna-inspired car art:
Puffy Paint on Windows
This is the least permanent and most popular! This can be scraped off with a razor blade when it’s time for a new design. The most popular brand of acrylic craft paint is the old standby that can be found at almost any craft store – Tulip. Put it into a henna applicator cone, and it goes on just like henna (hence why henna artists love it so very much). Be sure to know your local vehicle window visibility laws before giving this one a go.
Permanent Markers on the Car Body
Oil-based paint markers last the best, but people have also been known to just go at it with Sharpies. Unless you add a UV-protectant clear coating once it’s done, this will fade over time.
Vehicle Wraps and Decals
For a professional look, some artists create digital versions of their work and then have it printed onto car wraps and decals.
If your car is 100% paid off and you’re decent with brush work, painting the body of the car with professional quality auto paints may be for you. It is the longest-lasting of all of the available options, and can be done in a wide array of colors. Be sure to strip all of the branding and other decals off of the car before painting.
