The mail order business would be my wife’s. She may have brain damage, but she’s not stupid
She only just picked this up, so she wants to get some more experience (and try some different acrylic paint formulas, varnishes and other stuff) to build confidence. The Telecaster is probably gonna be the first instrument she’ll practice on.
For instance, the “air bubbles” (fairly large in the monochrome sample, and very fine in the coloured one) are done by mixing silicone spray with the paint, and then stirring. She wants to get consistency in that.
She is currently using very cheap acrylic paint to practice, but if she would do commissioned work, she’ll use higher quality acrylic. The paint she’s currently using has a tendency to fade under light. Normally, the varnish should make sure that this doesn’t happen too soon, but she won’t be pushing her luck.
