    Default Eerie Dess swirl questions

    I know how to do it in theory, but I want a yellow bottom coat with a black swirl thoughts?

    It's going to be on a hand built V body, I just want something unique for me to have.

    How hard is it going to be do the yellow and the black swirl?

    Don't know if it'll help but here's two links showing their respective process for swirling paint:

    Although you never get to see the complete guitar, the YouTube video shows a Green base color guitar with Black & Green added to the drum to create the effect. If you want Yellow & black - Replace the Green with Yellow. It looks similar to this:



    I think the BIGGER question would be paints and compatibilty. The video uses enamel for the swirl which would probably be hard to topcoat without lifting. If you want your end product to look like your photo example, you'll probably need to use Urethane so it can be clearcoated and buffed. I'm guessing but the pictured guitar looks like it was a black base with light & dark blues for the swirl with center and outer transparent burst colors.

    Basically TEST & TEST again!

    One last thought... If you practice dipping a guitar shaped blank into your water/paint solution, you may want to try submerging the guitar face into the solution first with the tremolo area as your handle base. This would give you more of a bull’s-eye or swirled bull’s-eye - depending on how the paint is laying in the water - compared to dipping it in bottom to top which would resemble the Ibanez Jem design. Just make sure you experiment first and seal-off the exposed wood. I might have to try one, too!

    Had some time research the Eerie Dess paint job and it's TOTALLY different than a "dipping" swirl. MY mistake - sorry! Here's a detailed thread:

    If you wanted to keep it close to the Eerie Dess style, you could shoot translucent yellow over the silver marbelizer and burst with black along the edge. WOW! It would be a challenge for sure!
