    Or flames and skulls! 🔥 🔥 💀 💀

    Got another coat of white in the body today. Unfortunately you can really see where i'd done the sanding on the other coat which had the runs. Going to need a bit of filler and some more sanding before anymore coats.

    Also started putting some thin coats on the neck and headstock which I'm pretty pleased with. Going to have to be very careful about how thick the coats are on the butt. The neck was pretty tight in the body before I did any painting, may have to sand some off but i'll work that out when I get to it.

    I'll post some more pictures once the paint has dried.

    I think it looks alright. Hoping the black bevel will really set it off

    It's always hard to do subsequent coats when you have had a run. The run always seems to be visible even when you have spent ages carefully sanding it out and you can't see or feel it after sanding. That next coat goes on and *bang!* there it is again It's a good thing you used white ... black shows up *every* little flaw... gloss black doubly so. The black on the bevels will realy grab the eye I reckon.

    Headstock painted. Couple of little marks where the black has bled under the tape. Pretty happy with the black and white, just needs a bit of a tidy up. Debating whether to go around with a small modeling brush or whether to try and scrape some of the paint back with a scalpel 🤔

    Kinda reminds me of black and white spats shoes from the 1920's. If the paint has enough flow, you may get away with the brush, with the scalpel you may still need to touch up the whiite. If you have an airbrush you could sand the black gently with 800 or 1000 grit back to the white then airbrush a little white as a touch up.
