Colored Pinewood Derby Wheel Spokes
Everyone likes the way the spokes look when they are painted with a silver color. But how do you achieve the fine detail without making such a mess?
Answer: A Prismacolor silver colored pencil. The colored pencil is soft enough to leave the silver color on the spokes without having to worry about paint running down in between the spokes. It also gives a child better control than when using a paint pen or a felt tip Sharpie marker. Best of all, if there is a mistake just erase it!
