I've tried painting POLICE BOX on my TARDIS, and it has not gone well. Any suggestions? Is it worth even trying to paint it, or should I just print out some labels?

 

Has anyone made labels that I could steal?

 

Thanks!

Search the forum, someone already made those and posted those last year!

 One thing you can do for painting small lettering that isn't part of the carved detail of the sculpt is to not paint the letters themselves, but paint the whole area of the text the color of the printing and then use your background color to paint over the places where the letters aren't (i.e., fill in the negative space), using it to define the edges of the letters. You would have a lot more space to play with and blocking out the larger spaces between the letters would be easier than trying to draw a  bunch of thin, tiny curved lines.
