The Fastest Finish Youve Done?

Recommended Posts

I'll bite with a serious answer. I finished one in two days(and it looks it). It's not a traditional gloss finish but it doesn't look bad at all. I've seen some guitars lately with a satin finish. Most of them have a textured finish. I wanted to try a water based finish that I could do down the basement quickly. I got a small bottle of flat black acrylic paint from a craft store(89 cents). I thinned it out and sprayed with a preval. I sprayed about 3 inches away so that I would get orange peel. I let it dry a day and them sprayed a coat of satin polycrylic(water based poly). It looks like the satin finishes that Fender is doing lately. Quick, easy, and cheap.
