Set #13 Finish painting and silk screen logo

Postby EFElliott » Sat Jan 31, 2009 8:29 pm

Here's a couple of shots of the finished Sunbursts, there's no clear lacquer on the guitars yet, just color, before I spray the clear I've got to scrape the top edge of the binding and clean up any black that's snuck under my tape on the side of the binding. Then it's time to silkscreen the Simi-World Famous "E.F.Elliott Logo" then we fill the ol' paint gun up clear nitrocellulose lacquer and spray 8 coats.

The side of the binding I tape of with 3M fine line tape, the top I scrape with a razor blade inbedded in a little guide tool, it gives you a good sharp line.

After the binding is cleaned up, I like to silkscreen my logo on the necks, silkscreening is a lot like using a stencil and spreading the paint with sweege.

I've just finished shooting 8 coats of clear nitrocellulose lacquer on the guitars, so we're going to let'em hang here a while and dry.
