I’m just showing that skills learned here for guitar building can be used for non guitar projects too. 👍

I’m making a jewellery box for my little niece for Christmas, so time for the flake and candy again. Her favourite colour is purple and she likes sparkly things, how convenient for me. ✨😄🤣 

A bit of sanding sealer first, then sanding, then masking. I can’t have paint building up on the inside edges because the lid won’t shut properly.

Time to mix some clear coat to bury that flake and when dry, some sanding.

Time to mix a bit of purple candy. 💜

Or is that my homemade blueberry and blackberry gin that’s been sitting for 3 months and now ready for bottling and drinking? 😜

Sorry, now it’s time to mix the purple candy. 💜 That is nice, it’s called Purple Haze.

I’ve got another shade of purple too so I’ll incorporate a simple abstract pattern to the project, completely random and unplanned. I’m making it up as I go along. 🤣 I used lining tape and masking tape.

Time for the first colour, the deeper purple first. 💜

Then take the masking tape off only, not the lining tape. Then apply the second, lighter shade of purple candy.

I’ve sanded it back again today, ready for a flow coat tomorrow. Time for a gin. 💜

Think you’ve just shaded it and no more

Some people call me a tool, others are less complimentary. Tools being useful things.

Pulled all the masking off and cleaned the box thoroughly before remarking in a slightly different way. This time I want to get a little paint and clear coat onto the edges to help prevent chipping and pealing. Touched up a few bits with my airbrush, more purple candy. 💜

Then time for the final flow coats, 3 coats should do it. 💜✨✨✨

I’ve got another box to paint now, for someone else. ✨✨✨✨

I’m demonstrating paintwork mainly in this post and these boxes will be used as boxes BUT……. in guitar building we could use these when making box guitars. I have a box guitar build on the go but it’s taken a back seat until after new year but I could paint it up like I have with these.
