Cool -My Electric Guitar Refinishing/Paint Job Project (White with Blood Splatter!) pics

So Im in a few bands and have built some guitars before, and painted some cars, so I figured I could build and paint a Bass for my friend who wanted a blood splatter look.

You can also follow pretty much the same steps and paint a car.

This was all done from autozone spray paint (lacquer)

So, he got this black bass for free from someone who abused the crap out of it and had major dents and scrapes so most of it had to be taken down to the wood.

finally done!


Let me know what you think

Did the fogged white layer, waiting for it to dry so I can put the next layer of blood for the 3D look.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this.

I almost bought a pair of heels from Hot Topic last year that match this perfectly. White with the splatter. Kinda weird, but I work in surgery so... it's just fitting for me. haha.

Hahaha, I get it, I love the scheme but never had a guitar in bad shape to refinish.

Yeah, its a fun project, black is the hardest to do, shows every imperfection, White made this a good bit easier.

Yeah man, totally doable, probably just need bigger blood droplets so you could seem them from far away.
