Re: My latest swirls

I think you are off to a good start, but they look a little more like paint splatter than swirls. The top one is the closest to a swirl, but the colors aren't my taste. Any time you have white it looks like in incomplete swirl to me, maybe because that tends to be the base coat.

Keep practicing, you are closer than I'll ever be.

Re: My latest swirls

They don't really look like swirls at all, just paint splatters, and not very attractive ones at that. Sorry.

Re: My latest swirls

They do look splatteryish(sp?LOL) but, idk, It could grow on me. Throw some crazy colored pickups in there along with a maple fretboard neck and it might look nice. But they are right, try to make it look more like a swirl next time and get rid of the white.

Re: My latest swirls

I actually like the first one, except it's ruined by the fact that you missed the top of the upper horn. The second just looks like a mess to me.
But you're well on your way, so keep at it!!!!!!!
