I’ve had this very strong urge to spray-paint one of my typewriters (possibly the Lettera 32?) a funky color–either purple or bright red. It has always been my dream to have a bright red typewriter, but I don’t much care for the Valentine and the Sears Courier models are always so hard to come by / come with problems, or are out of my price range. Collecting typewriters on a budget = plenty of disappointment.
So this desire to paint does not seem to be mine alone. I stumbled upon this gallery of painted typewriters. So pretty! I wonder what these owners used to paint their typewriters. Maybe a certain type of paint works better? I would mind decoupaging the typewriter, either. Still, don’t know how, though!
