    Default A little something I'm workin' on...

    Got a lot of work to do still, but it looks good so far. Well, that's my opinion at least.

    Is this one based on the real Franky?

    Oh... but I am. I'm starting on it in about a week. I'll be posting a detailed thread.
    I did incorporate a few details that I've been made aware of recently in this one, but I was going for more of the Fender look.

    Nice work Kyle..but is there a reason for not doing the relic work on the black and white paint before you painted the red?...lots of places there was wood and we can see the red paint on top of it?..

    Yes, mainly on the elbow countour, the lower horn side and the back. But the wood showing on the black stripes turned up when the tape came off and took some black paint with it... so it should be done AFTER the red.

    the wood beside the floyd on the left, on the black strip can't be cause from tape lifting, since there is some RED on top of it. It's to uneven for tape lifting paint.

    Default Aging Tip

    I used 80 grit sandpaper to rough up the finish before I sprayed the red being careful not to sand too heavily. I just wanted a "scuffed all over" look. I aged the black and white in all the appropriate spots that I couldn't get to once the red was done and taped it up. Sprayed the red, pulled the tape and then I used a regular pencil and wrote all over the white that was left and rubbed it out with my fingers. The pencil lead found it's way down into the scratches left by the 80 grit. It was a really cool effect that closely mimicks the Fender if that's what you're going for. I mist the body in the right spots with tinted clear to really give it that "Over 30" look. You can't really do any sanding (wet or dry) after the red is on without affecting the white and making it pink.

    Actually Kyle, you can wet sand the 3 colors easily and you wont get any "pink white", but cure time is a good 2 to 3 weeks even with acrylic. u did it on all of mine and works nicely. Even using a gentle touch with steelwool will, but it needs to be fully cured.

    Jimi, i'm talking about the spot i encircled in yellow. Those can not be caused my tape removal. THey are not on the Black and White version..so they were not cause by the first tape applied. And since they have a Red Overlapp on 2 of the spot, you have to assume they were large dings done before it was painted red.

    All of those spots can be done after the red is sprayed and it's easier to accurately place and shape them.
