Our Souls inc. Posted March 9, 2010 Report Share Posted March 9, 2010 I've always wanted to do one of these! They look like so much fun! There's got to be some way to do it without using contact cement though? For some reason I just couldn't bring myself to use it on a guitar (don't ask why, just internal prejudice since I used it in pre-school lol). I'd love to find a way to do it with epoxy or something, but so that it doesn't leak through the paper... so I could do it on a carved top in my vacuum system or something! Chris Actually , after experimenting with a couple of glues : elmers , titebond and the contact cement , The cement wins hands down. I had the elmers and the titebond soak the paper to the point where it rips/bleeds or otherwise makes you start over ! and don't put sealer on top of it either - soaks through in random locations leaving spots behind. The carved top vaccuum thing has me goin I don't think the paper would stretch as much as wrinkle. Although stretchy fabric would be do-able . The Pirates of the Carribean guitar would be easy to do this way - and wayyyy cheap compared to airbrushing. Just gotta consider the edges and hiding them. Good luck experimenting if you do ! feel free to ask questions. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
