Re: Swriling process documented

So what kind of paints would you need to use for this process? Surely the water would have needed some kind of preparation too, or wouldn't it all just drip off? I'm confused. Doesn anyone know? I want to try this out on some cheap body and then maybe try it for a project.

Sorry to say that, but you're totally wrong IMO.
Swirled guitars has lots of imperfections to manage and paint issues to worry about.
Ask those have been ACTUALLY swirled and finished a guitar!

..but that's exactly what I'm saying! PAINT issues. The painting process is what is *most* different.

I love your swirls by the way

Re: Swriling process documented

Well I found the video interesting to watch.

I got the gist of the swirling process from this site a few years ago, but have never actually seen it done.
The preparing of the guitar body along with the buffing, finishing and polishing (etc) are no doubt very significant and important parts of the process.

That said, as a layman with no plans to actually do my own swirling, the interesting part - the actual swirl - was captured in the video.

Thanks for posting it up RCB.

Re: Swriling process documented

That's exactly how I do swirls.
Here's the first one that I did...Funny thing about doing it this way is that the paint is dry almost immediately!!

Anybody else use this method?
If so, what EXACTLY is the brand/kind of paint you're using?
I know what I use works, but it's not quite as thick and vibrant as some other swirls I've seen...

I would go as far as saying that it's les then 30% after you get the currect balance of paint Thickness and making the diferrent shades "work" together in the water. once you have the experience it shouldn't take more then 5 - 10 minutes. The hard work is all the prep work requiered before, and the finishing after.

Yeah; that's what happens when you don't use enough paint and you stop on the way down into the water....learning...learning...

Re: Swriling process documented

that guy makes it look easy, he must have spent as much time as me trying to do it, it took me the best part of a year (not to do it once to do it consistantly) having sanded down a guitar especialy an ibanez with its points and edges it isnt much fun having to do it again and again. I live in england and swirl paint guitars also, trust me its not that easy, i saw the documentation about a year ago, and it made me laugh Give it a go but trust me it isnt that easy. heres acouple of mine anyway.

its also a lot harder to do multiple colours, thats why herc fedes the best! have a look at the guys when hes doing 3 and 4 colours. dont get me wrong, the green one looks amazing, but check out his camo swirl? now go look at herc site, awsome.
