Introduction: Easy Guitar Art

Want to give your guitar a new look but don't want to spend ANY money at all?  Wellyou've come to the right place.

With some time and effort, you will get the results as shown below

It took me around 1-2 hours to do this

Step 1: Gathering the Materials

Materials are:

-A Guitar
-Masking Tape
-Glue(Any office/home glue would do)
-A4 Paper
-Permanant Marker
-A piece of junk cloth

Step 2: Choosing Your Design

When choosing or making your design, choose/make one that has only one colour and that isn't too complicated.

After that, print your design out in A4 paper

Step 3: Cut Out Your Design

Now, tear out some masking tape and cover the area where your design is and cut it out

Step 4: Trace Out Your Art

Now, carefully trace out your design with permanent marker.

After that, carefully cut out your design with a pair of scissors or blade

Step 5: Finishing Up the Design

Now, place the design that you just cut out onto a piece of A4 paper.

Use your permanent marker to trace around the art and colour it again to fill up any blanks.

Step 6: Stick It Onto Your Guitar

Choose where you want to stick your design, for me I'd stick it on the bottom right of the guitar as it doesn't obstruct you when your jamming on your guitar.

Turn your design around so that the white surface is facing up. Take your glue and dab around the surface and carefully place it on your guitar.

Take a wet cloth, and wipe around your design to lose the glue stains.

Step 7: And There You Have It....

 Hi, for me I used common A4 paper. But pretty much any kind of paper could be used

If you're cutting the design out - had you thought of using a stencil and paint instead?

Well no, won't it smudge?

lemonie (author)toakhong2010-03-20

It wouldn't smudge if done carefully. Just a thought.
