Xanthus Posted December 12, 2006 Report Share Posted December 12, 2006 (edited) For my truss rod cover, I was thinking of going with Jehle's transparency-paper-and-laser-jet method. I was wondering, however, whether or not the logo would blend in with the paint I'm using. My main concerns are: Will the edges of the transparency paper vanish over A) 2 or 3 coats of clear, and B ) a candy red basecoat. A) with the clear needed to cover the basecoat and then sand down, if I put a piece of transparency paper on, the logo will technically be "floating" above the red basecoat. Would I happen to get a shadow reflecting on the red basecoat? B ) I wanted the trussrod cover to match the bevels and the back of the neck: HOK candy apple red. I like the look of a plain black headstock, but still want some sort of logo, so I thought the truss rod cover would be a natural choice. Since the candy is such a richer color than most, not to mention red is a pretty light color, might I get discoloration in the area of the logo, because of the transparency paper? Has anyone ever done this before, the logo over a solid color, not bare wood, like in the tutorial? Thanks, guys.
