I painted this vintage/antique (anyone know the difference?)  on a piece of cardboard using acrylic paint. I love old Singers and I'd love to get a tattoo of one on my back someday. 

Close up

I figured the subject matter would be enjoyed by Craftsters... Smiley

Very retro! I think you should do another one an a HUGE sheet of canvas, but then again, that's just me.

Vintage is anything older then 25 years (at least as far as cars are concerned) and antique is older then 50-100 years depending on the particular item and your sources.

That machine would be an antique ^_^

When I saw the thumbnail, I thought it was a real singer machine! Great job!

Very hot.
You should pick up a frame for it and hang it on your crafting area.

Oh my goodness! I found an old Singer at a thrift store a couple days ago for 45 bucks...and I have no idea how to find out what model/type it is!! I do know that it's from 1946....do you know anything about my poor nameless machine?

I like the painting, it's very unique...and orange is my very very favorite color : )
