My Swirl Refinish

Hi all, so ive been doing swirls for a couple years now, and finally got myself a real compressor/spray gun to do the clearcoat with. I have previously used Nitro laquer in a can, but the 2 part auto clear i used is a HUGE step up. After 5 coats, the build up was more than enough, and it took a day to cure. Laquer takes about 15 coats to build enough, and dries forever.
Here are some pics of my RG 7620 with swirl...

That's the most like real marble I've ever seen a swirl look! Great work!

Re: My Swirl Refinish

Thanks for the kind words guys!! I have done quite a few UV/PMC/DNA type swirls for others, but i prefer something a bit more subtle for my personal guitars. Plus, i wanted the colors to match that huge fretboard!!
