  1. Finally managed to get some work done...cut the dots, and fixed them with some ca, radiused, re-cut the fret slots. then shaped the transitions on the neck, and cut and shaped the bone nut up to a point. and then set the frets, using some PVA in the slots. now I need to dress them, and cut the nut to size. The body I've already coated in sealer, so I can spray the sunburst on on a sunny day some time soon.

  3. It won't work that way. Pigments are ground solid stuff similar to sand. Many pigments actually are ground stone. There's coarse sand and fine sand and dust. No matter how much water or alcohol you add the coarse sand won't turn to dust. Think it like corn: There's a big difference in wholegrain and sieved flour. Mixed with water one makes a mess and the other one dough. Adding more water to wholegrain doesn't make the mess bakeable. If you thin paint so much that you can see the fancy figuration of the wood, you'd be seeing tiny coloured dots all over the surface. It would look

  4. Pigments are ground much coarser for paints as compared to dyes too. Paints are made to lay on top and completely hide what's underneath, and dyes, with ultra-fine pigments are meant to soak into the wood fibers and enhance them. SR

  5. You can thin oil paints with white spirit. I've use oil paints to stain guitars before and I wouldn't recommend it to be honest, takes forever to dry and a lot of it will come off if you do any kind of wipe on finishing - it will react with true oil, crimson finishing oil, wipe on poly (those are the 3 I've tried anyway) etc. Angelus leather dyes are very good if you want vibrant colours.
