Brush painted swirl...

So this guy couldn't afford an MC and couldn't get the hang of swirling, so he just used fine brushes and hand painted a swirl onto his guitar. It actually came out pretty damn good, good for him...

That did come out pretty good! I think the front looks better than the back...of course with the amount of time that probably took he may have started cutting corners by the time he got to the back. I wonder if he copied the pattern from an actual swirl or if he just did his thing?

That's quite cool - sort of a cross between a MC swirl and a JS Rainbow

Interesting what folks can do when they get their mind around things, isn't it?

Too bad he hasn't found out about Tubaro seeing he is in South America too

It did turn out better than I would have expected.

Re: Brush painted swirl...

that indeed does look very good. Although, that body is horribly off. Look at the position of grip and shape of horns
