Project Info


  1. Begin with properly fired shelf cone 04 bisque. Moisten a clean sponge and wipe bisque to remove any dust.
  2. Place some SS-138 Flat Black onto a foam plate. Using an AB-834 ¾"" Base Coat Brush, apply 1 coat of SS-138 Flat Black. Allow to dry.
  3. Place some MM-105 Gold Metallic and MM-106 Steel Metallic onto a foam plate.
  4. Using a AB-902 #2 Stiff Fan, apply 1 coat of MM-106 Steel Metallic to the body of the Guitar. Allow to dry.
