Re: Swirl Materials and Techniques.

I'm not annoyed at all. you can post whatever you like, wherever you like. Its just that it looked like you searched every old post that is about swirling and wrote the same post in all of them. we all love swirls and very interested in every new swirler that comes along. your swirls look real good but so far you have "teased" us with swirled pieces of wood all over the place
and if you are so sensitive you better embrace yourself. sometimes things heat up in here real fast. just read through the first 5 o 6 pages of this thread. anyway you will soon find out that in general we are all friendly people with no intent to offend. so welcome, and we are waiting to see a swirled guitar from you so step on it.

Re: Swirl Materials and Techniques.

As said before: yes your swirls are good.


Am I wrong in thinking you'll soon be selling swirls online?

If so: may I suggest that you create a signature (animated Gifs) that include you swirls (but smaller size) and invite people to visit your website?

that would attract traffic to your web pages and you could use your time to explain people interested in swirls the technique etc. As some people still prefer to do it by themselves instead of paying a someone. (not that they dont have the money or want to become competitor, jsut that some people like to do things with their hands on w.ends)

by the way: the one in the middle, 3rd pic is pretty cool. achieve by swirling 2x the wood with different colors no?

Re: Swirl Materials and Techniques.

So im starting on a swirl project and really have gotten to the hardest part....trying to find paint that doesnt SUCK. Trust me when i say i have tested dozens of paint brands but am always unhappy with the results. I have searched and search and i have finally come across this forums to hopefully learn which brand of paint i need. I am starting to get impatient, seeing as it has been 3 months with no luck in finding anything.

So, my question is what type of paint do you pros use to make your swirls flow well? I know enamels are good, but im talking brands to try. House of Kolor? Humbrol?

Re: Swirl Materials and Techniques.

Sorry, I know this thread is a little old... but me and my friend are gonna attempt to start doing our own swirl projects... of course we'll just be practicing on pieces of wood, etc... but I have just a few questions...

#1. I wanna order the Jacquard Airbrush (& Marbling) Colors in Green and Black... has anyone used this brand? Apparently it also works very good for swirling on wood. Only $10 bucks for 8 oz.

#2 The Carageenan stuff that jellys the top of the water to hold the paint... it's kind of expensive and I'm just wondering how much I'll actually need to do the project. They have it at $22.95 for 8 oz which makes 12 gallons and $41.95 for 24 oz which makes 24 gallons.
Will I need more than that? Is there something that works just as well that I can use that isn't so expensive... I tried that Borax crap, but I wanna experiment with different things.

Thanks!
-Jay

I'm thinking the exact same thing.

Also; would it be sacrilege to do a swirl on a strat?

No, but if your strat is a good american strat then it would be sacrilege. Best bet buy a mexican strat so if you mess it up you won't feel so bad.
