Thorn Elements Swirls

Hey guys,

Full body pix are on page 3 of the thread. Enjoy!

Re: Thorn Elements Swirls

As I would expect by now, those all look absolutely fantastic. You've really got your style down at this point and your color selection is excellent. Magma, Rainforest and Ocean all look completely amazing, can't wait to see the finished products.

As a matter of fact, I work in Royal Oak, so I'm possibly a little too close for comfort.

I actually have been kicking around the idea of getting a guitar done. The main reason I don't is that I do mods and refinishes myself and would really like to learn to swirl, but frankly, your work is already past the point that I'd be likely to reach any time soon. If I do it, you'll be the man I come to for sure.

Re: Thorn Elements Swirls

I like how the swirls are so tight and fine lined yet there is color all throughout.

Re: Thorn Elements Swirls

BEAUTIFUL work - the Ocean one is my favorite. Thanks again for making me want another guitar; but if it looked like the Ocean swirl, hmmm; gotta sell some stuff now, lol.

Really impressive work. The 'Ocean' is the standout one for me.

Top notch! I love Magma, Atmosphere and Stone is very original.

I wish I could find someone to swirl my Gibson Flying-V (but they would need a HUGE vat...

Re: Thorn Elements Swirls

Fantastic work! True art, especially when one considers how well you nailed the elemental theme. Thanks for sharing and good luck with future collaborations.

By the way, the Ocean is my favorite, too, no wonder he wants to keep it for himself.

Peace

Mike
