Happy Camper I painted...

I had a blast painting this fun little vintage camper inside and out, for a client who had decorated the inside Victorian. See more photos here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.463097040389614.106339.100000679654996&type=1&l=b79da62850
I designed and painted it to imply a Victorian painted lady, complete with gazing ball, porch swing, flowers, and two pretty kitties
Porch rail cat I painted close up
I painted the awning to resemble a patio table, which I also painted complete with lemonade... and one chair cushion painted to conceal the top of the air conditioner
I painted the back of the trailer with a bike and fly rod to ride to catch trout, and I concealed the lights by painting them to look like flower pots, and sewer hose to look like sidewalk
Fish and creel I painted close up
Back I painted to tell the story of the client and her grandma who the trailer is named for
Pie in the window

    I'm working on a vintage trailer for a "craft " store I want to know what kind of paint did you use and did you need to seal it? By the way it's perfect great job

    What kind of paint did you use, will it not chip off, did you put a protective coating on top? I, 76 years, with a 1983 , 17 ft. trailer that I've done creative things inside, and in the spring I'm thinking of painting this trailer a nice yellow, and with black poka dots, with yellow door. Likely flower boxes under each side of the 2 windows. ( maybe wild flowers in the back with a special 4 ft. or so butterfly.) And a big frog, laying down relaxing, in the lilly pads. for the front.) I'm not an artist, so will have to find someone in Portland, Oregon... Do you have an idea how to do the black poka dots so they will be perfectly round? And any other suggestions I am wide open to.. thanks again. granny with ideas!
