How to unlock the Budding Artist achievement

    You can only unlock painted items online.

    I simply played 5 matches of Standard 3v3 online (the game mode does not matter) and unlocked a Painted Top Hat at the end of the fifth game.

    It may take longer for you though since it is down to luck and will unlock at random.

    Note: There is apparently a 10 hour weekly limit to earning rewards, if you find you are no longer earning items simply wait until the following week.

    * With the last update trading was introduced into the game. You can now receive Painted and Certified items via another player. The achievement has been reported to be rather glitchy when unlocking via trading.

    However, according to user MacWhyte after recieving your painted item from a friend, switching profiles at the main menu and then switching back to your profile unlocks the achievement immediately. If not then waiting 24 hours after you received the painted item works as well according to many users.

    JanSH4DOWI can confirm you can get the achievement if a friend is trading you a painted item.
    Because I played Rocket League before via Steam I already had many painted items so I traded one painted item from me for one painted item from my mate. Achievement unlocked straight after it.

    I unlocked my painted item online!
    As we know, you can only unlock them online!

    You simply have to play online games.

    - It doesn't matter which typ of matches they are (3v3, 2v2, ...).
    (I unlocked mine while playing with a friend 2v2 unranked)

    - It also doesn't matter if they are ranked or unranked.

    - And it also doesn't matter if you lose or win the game.
    (I lost my match 3:5)

    It's simply based on luck! You can unlock the painted item after 5 or after 50 matches.
    Just keep playing and you will get it.

    GameProAUSHey All,

    I was struggling with this achievement for ages but believe i've finally cracked it through a combination of all solutions posted on the internet and seeing so many comments about people unlocking after they had a second painted item - Try this out!

    Potential Solution To Bug:
    Note: You will need someone else with 10 minutes and 2 painted items for this method to work

    Firstly, Get your achievement hunting sidekick to trade you one painted item without you trading anything back in return. Then, equip the item and head into any online game. If it doesn't unlock immediately after the trade, or after completing the game with the equipped item, hard reset your Xbox (Press and hold the X on the console down for 10 seconds) with the item still equipped.

    Restart your Xbox and grab hold of your achievement hunting sidekick again so they can trade you their second item; without you trading anything in return. Achievement popped up immediately after I had the second item in my inventory with my painted tires still equipped on my car. If this doesn't work straight away I would recommend repeating the process or just keep trading back and forth until it does pop-up. Always keep one painted item equipped however!

    Let me know if this works and I'll spread the word.

    transkyman4 years later and this is still a struggle. I've played like 50 games. I haven't gotten painted or certified items. Anyone willing to trade?

    I have a solution for those who have had this achievement glitch on them. Everyone seems to be saying it works.

    1. Sign out of your main account
    2. Sign into an alt account
    3. Start a public online match
    4. During the match, press the Xbox button and sign in your main account
    5. Go back to Rocket League and you should see a message saying "Primary User has no controller". Select the "Quit" option.
    6. You should be taken back to the title screen. Press any button to go to the main menu.
    7. You will be signed in on your main account in Rocket League and hopefully the achievement will unlock.

    I unlocked a painted item and the achievement did not unlock. So I tried equipping the item and completing an online match and still nothing. Then I tried restarting my console and doing the same thing again and still nothing.

    Due to the 10 hour limit on earning items, I farmed items on an alt account, trying to get a painted item but had no luck. So I did exactly what was mentioned in the solution by accident and the achievement finally unlocked.

    I hope this solution helps you get your achievement.
