17 Dirty Car Art Have you ever scribbled on the dirty window of a car ? Or maybe you drew a funny face instead . One man , Scott Wade , from Texas , U . S . A ., uses the back window of dirty cars to create amazing drawings . For over 20 years , Scott lived at the end of a long dirt road . The family’s car was always dirty from driving up and down the road . Scott would often doodle * on the car’s dirty , dusty back window . Most of the time he would draw funny faces with his fingers . Then he started experimenting with the dust creating different shades of gray . He was so pleased with the result that he started using paintbrushes and other tools too . Eventually he developed the technique he uses today – working with different brushes , popsicle sticks and his fingers . Recently his hobby became his career , and he now scribbles at a variety of events , from weddings to car shows . Today , Scott doesn’t always wait for cars to get dirty . He actually makes them dirty himself . First he rubs oil onto the window . Then he buys special sand that he blows onto the oiled window with a hairdryer . The whole process takes about 10 minutes . He says that when you try to put dirt on the car in a single day , it just falls off the window . It takes seven days to get the window that dirty by driving up and down a dirt road . Over the years , Scott has built up a fantastic collection that includes a portrait of footballer Ronaldinho , a drawing of Albert Einstein and a sketch of da Vinci’s Mona Lisa . Scott’s work is so unusual that when drivers see one of his drawings on a car they stop at traffic lights and jump out of their cars to admire the work and take photographs . However , as soon as rain falls , the picture disappears . Scott feels sad when this happens . “ But it’s also great , ” he says , “ because that means I get to do another one . ”
