T​rying something different

E​xperimenting with a different background

7w ago

A​fter many months of quarantine, I finally got a chance to visit a Hobby Lobby to see what they had for poster board. Well, they didn’t disappoint and I was able to find a bunch of new colors to add to my arsenal. Then I went down another isle and I found this....



That’s right! H​olographic style poster board. I purchased a couple of sheets and brought them home (WARNING: great care must be taken when handling or transporting these. One false move and it’s crease city).

O​nce home, the question became ‘What car would look good with this background?’. So I first grabbed a white Countach because, well, it’s a Countach.

T​hat looked pretty good. But then I found a chromed Matchbox Corvette Grand Sport and the results were pretty trippy.

T​hen, I thought ‘why not try a spotlight (flashlight).

A​ few more shots...

A​s you can see, there’s a lot of potential here. So now I will be searching for some more of my ‘80‘s castings and see what else works with the background. Don’t worry, I’m not giving up on the Redlines. Just trying something different.
