Swirl attempt #2

Hello again. Here is swirl attempt #2. I didn't have anything to swirl so I took just was I had on my table, a case with Swedish

smoke free tobaco. And turned it to a GMC smoke free tobacco case

Actually this weekend I will prepare a RG1570 body for swirling. I have sand it down and hope that I will get the primer and base

colour for the swirl on it. I havn't decided which colours to go for yet. I'm waiting for a delivery with a wide range of colours so

I'll make some samples before I decide.

Here is some pictures:

I've never swirled anything but I'd bet it's easier on a plastic object like that than on wood as well. Still looks pretty awesome though..
