tasty_finish Posted May 23, 2004 Report Share Posted May 23, 2004 Hi all, I'm new to this forum, what i would like to know is if anyone has ideas or suggestions for achieving a hematite metallic finish to the body of a solid mahogany guitar, to get a shimmering mirroing effect. I thought a similar process to 'gold-leafing' might be possible, perhaps getting a guilder to apply and then polish it up. My major hangups with this is the 'heat' involved, possibly burning the wood and drastically changing the tonal propeties of the body. Mettalic paints are also another options but i really want it to shimmer under lights like chrome, not just reflect like a laquer. Any ideas or comments would be great!
