One more 3D truck / trailer project

I have finished my 2nd printed project. I see a couple of things to correct and I still need to add horns. If I could learn how to paint the wheels/tires neatly I would be very happy. Any hints ? ?









Thanks for looking,
Carl

The only hint other than a light steady hand and thinned paint, so it flows nicely is...light to dark.
Paint the wheels first, no matter how sloppy and then correct everything with the black.

Beautiful Carl!

Get a fine-tip sharpie to touch up those wheels.

Silver sharpies. Not quite so chrome, but much easier to control.
