Thumbs up Swirls Swirls Swirls

Just posted a few pics of a swirled body thats in the processes of being finished.
It probably about my 3rd attempt with these colours.

What do you think guys












Some of the picture quality is a bit naff but the patterns are really vivid!!!

I like how the swirl almost looks like woodgrain, especially with the "knot" right by the volume control. Good for you- very clean work.

Re: Swirls Swirls Swirls

Did you paint the guitar the base black color and only swirl green, or is it black and green swirled over white base coat? --Jason

I experimented all ways. This particular body is black and green swirl over a black base.
Using a white base showed some nice shades of green but the white was also showing through in places, which admittedly looked nice aswell but wasnt the effect i was after on this occasion.

They look better than a lot of the original GMCs.

Very nice. One of the few non factory swirls that I've seen that I like.
