2nd attempt for Sunset Swirl

Hi! After my 1st swirl debacle, I finally got around to stripping it and I'm between coats for the base white.

I finally bit the bullet and ordered some magic marble from Mila at artforhappiness.ca this afternoon. Nice lady, I talked to her on the phone for awhile and she helped me get the best deal on shipping to the US.

I'll be spraying the base white today and then it's the old holding pattern till my MM's get here. Assuming I get my swirl right this time, it'll be hit with a can of the 2k spraymax clear, then all the lovely wet sanding, polishing, and buffing. I'll post pics as I progress.

Here's to 2nd chances!

Re: 2nd attempt for Sunset Swirl

Thanks for the outpouring of support folks! I really appreciate it!

I feel really bad now that I don't have anything to show yet!

So here's a kitten.



Real pics soon
