Just a teaser for my new metal flake project. I’ve not done one for a while so I’m excited to get started. In fact I’ve already started, got the grain filling done and sanding sealer. I’ve ordered some new flake and paint, ready to get this project done. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

The future is sparkly. 🎸✨🎸✨🎸✨🎸✨

This time I’m using a mix of large silver flake and holographic micro flake (rainbow spectrum colours), mixed into clear basecoat. Yeah, this time I’m using a wet application, employing a gun with a 2.5mm air cap and needle.

@bpower Yeah, I normally wear my mask when mixing flake and paints, it’s a health and safety thing. I’m just uploading a video of me mixing everything together so I can’t wear my mask as I’m talking.

@boo yeah. I'm just having flashbacks of elementary school and how irresponsible I was with the glitter. I think I'm still finding some almost 40 years later.  🙂

@boo so cool boo. My wife just seen you mixing this and she just said... why didn't I know you can do this to a guitar? Looks like I may need to learn something new in the future... the long off future if I can help it. 🙂

@bpower Yeah, it sticks to most things including the house and garden as well as your clothes and shoes; it gets everything. It is extremely cool stuff though and a lot of fun to do. 

Has your wife seen these? If not, show her that you need to paint your guitars like this. 😁👍✨✨🎸
