Do it yourself swirl questions

I'm hoping some of you that have tried this at home can answer some questions for me. I've been practicing with other objects and using Tamiya Laquer paints for practice and I'm having really good results. Now I feel I have the confidence to do a guitar. My questions are how much of each color do you use to achieve good coverage and what paint have you had the best success with? and have you thinned it? I don't mind buying expensive paint if thats what works best as I plan to do a few. Any input is greatly appreciated.

Re: Do it yourself swirl questions

I've never tried swirling but as far as your question goes why don't you just try a big primed piece of wood, if it covers something the same size as a guitar body then logic says it's gonna cover a guitar body.
