Re: Painting The guitar
Like others have said before, the best swirls are those you get by yourself by trial and error. Unfortunately, with swirling there is much error (and money) before your first success.
I can understand those who have perfected the art not wanting to pass on secrets, there is too much time, money, blood and tears invested in this artform. And even if you were given some information, there are so many variables affecting the result that you will probably get a different result anyway.
Really Marco, if you like the swirl effect, you will love the results you get by yourself, after you experiment and get used to all the different things involved in getting a good result. Sorry to babble on too much but I don't think anyone can give a recipe that will give a perfect first time result. Please experiment, enjoy and I hope to see your successful swirls in the near future.
