Questions About Spray Cans And Finishes


Recommended Posts

hey guys, long time i have'nt been online. Either way, i got a bit of prob, i got a zakk wylde bullseye les paul, epi version, now i got a bit probs with this guitar, it bored the **** out of me, cosmetically, so i changed the hardware to chrome, and well i loved it....but i also got bored of that gold plated nut cover, i got some chrome spray can paint, uhmuhm it says , rust oleum bright coat metallic finish chrome paint, don't know if it matter or not....but i wanted to make the nut cover chroed as well...so is the paint i got good ? or not ? also, i sanded the gold lating off of the nut, so it's down to it's true brass, also....once i paint it....what sealer do i use ?

second prob, i hate the epi style headstock, hate it.....so i want to add horns to it, kind of like a widow bc rich head stock....i was thinking...could i cut out the extra horns out of some sort of wood....and use some kind of glue to stick it to the sides ? maye epoxy ?

and lastlye....i hate the epi logo....i want to put a gibson logo....i know i cn mask off everything but the epi word so i can spray black over it.....then clear coat....and use high grit sand paper till it's all level.... but i was wondering......could i do that same technique to the body ? see, in ozzy's get me through video, zakk uses a black les paul, but with mirror inlays on the bulls eyes...so i was wondering.....could i mask of the parts i want to chrome...then use sealer ?

oh yeah, the the way, i got this dean dimebagg darell tribute ml, i was wondering, could i use some sealer over the clear coat ? i love those dimbagg darrell stickers that come on em, so i was wondring if i could just seal cot ontop and then sooth it down with some high grit ?

also....can the same technique that was used for the that ibanez headstock, be used to make fake binding on the fret board ?
