Simple Question


Recommended Posts

I'm looking to start building another custom and I got an idea of what I want but I have very weird taste.

I'm looking for a strat body in an emerald green finish. Imagine a translucent dark green finish with some sparkle in it.

Sounds like, either rare or non existent to me. But I would like to ask the pros before I start looking into painting it myself.

SIDE NOTE: If I am right by saying it does not exist can you give me some tips on how I would go on to paint this?

What kind of paint are you going to use? Spray paint? If so you might want to get the clear Effex paint from Dupli-color. I'm sure there are other brands that make the same thing. After you've painted with the emerald green base coat, then use this to add a small amount of glitter, sparkle to your finish. If your going to use professional automotive paint, you can buy different sparkle, glitter to mix into your clear coat also.

I was kinda hoping that I wouldnt have to paint it, that I could buy one first if they are available. I havent thought about the ind of paint yet. And besides, I have never painted a body in my life.
