Thank you to every single one of you who sent me support and compliments when I showed my first day of working on this. I’ve honestly been so terrified of finishing this thing, but everyone cheering me on helped me so much mentally c: it is FAR from perfect, but I expected that to be the case before I even started cutting out comic panels. I’m very happy to show you all the finished product!!
I think it turned out fantastic! You did a great job.
Looks pretty bitchen man nice work and a great idea the real question now is how does she play lol
Thanks so much!
Thank you! And I haven’t had time yet to plug her in since finishing her up, but as long as I didn’t heck up anything too bad she should still play amazing!
That looks great. What was the process?
Thank you! I roughed up the lacquer a tiny bit with some 0000 steel wool, used painters tape to cover up all areas I didn’t want affected, and then I used mod podge to stick on clippings I took from comic books. After that I sprayed it with some clear gloss spray paint, and slathered it up with more mod podge to dilute the gloss because I sprayed way too much and had it super uneven haha. I used an exacto knife to cut all the edges, and I sprayed many coats of the gloss. I tried sanding some of the coats to get them super smooth, but I kept tearing some of the paper and decided it wasn’t worth it. I just sprayed enough that I felt it was well protected, and then polished it up like I would any of my other guitars @conanthebarbarian
Amazing! We ever gonna get to hear you play her?
Killer work Man!! I’ve thought of doing something similar. Are those actual pages from comic books or did you print out some pages through a computer printer?
That’s so cool! I love swamp thing walking on the right side of the strings! Do you want to make me one!?
They’re from comic books! I thought about printing them out but feared they wouldn’t come out well, the ink may spread, etc. And once I started it was like “Well now I HAVE to do the whole thing with comic books” it just wouldn’t feel like a “comic book guitar” if part of the images came from my printer haha
Haha thanks so much! And to be honest I never want to do this again lmao, it was so stressful and terrifying… That being said, money is money lmao
Thank you! And ohhh that’s an idea I hadn’t thought of, next time I’m recording I’ll post something here!
You say you won’t do this again but given your sheer talent and creativity, I have a feeling you’ll be on a new just as stressful and just as cool project!
Oh god you’re probably right lmao
Thanks so much :'D
Thanks so much! Also, wonderful profile name!
