Thixatropic gel colour


Recommended Posts

I read (i think) in one of mr erlewine's books, about him using some coloured, transparent water based gel paint on one guitar, just wiping the colour on.

Great idea, i thought, but, i did several searches but couldn't turn up any of this stuff in the uk (and barely any in the states).

However, Being dragged round a hobby shop last night by the missus, on the glass painting isle, a found a shedload of this thixatropic gel stuff, for glass/wood/etc, for £2 a-tube, and 30% off that price. I bought 5, enough for sunburst type colours and a couple of carrieburst-esque colours.

So three-ish questions :

1) Anyone used them before? and do you have any tips?

2) Do you think a wipe on sunburst is feasible?

3) Has anyone coloured walnut before? because i'm thinking of ditching the block colour I was going to do in favour of this...!
