Introduction: Pimp My Guitar (fine Woodworking)
i painted a guitar with airbrush. the client never paid me and never return back for his guitar so i decided to make an experiment with a wood chisel. so i had already my design on the guitar and tryed with the flat but small chisel.
i discover that shadows on woodworking are the deep on wood, so i keep the lights up, in other words i didnt sculp them or carve. i used my fingers to feell the figures
a guitar doesnt have thick body and i found i should carve on the buttons area or the pick up because of the sound
so i change the tool and tryed a dremel with different carve points
i had a dremel extension so this helped not to fell the strong vibration from dremel tool
it fells confortable because of the small. i used ear protection and also a handkerchief because of the dust
when sculpting with dremel is like doing shadows with a pencil
u draw in lines, if u want shadows u stay more time there
try to use the big one dremel carve points for big areas and small one for eyes, tooths or flakes
this experiment took me i guess a month
im a selftaught so i was learning slow
after make one of the dragon of the original design i tryed to improvise and did a lot of desings on it
this was the finished work
after finish carving i sand it with a wood sand paper
then tryed a ink wood with a tow and applyed sealant and lacquer with a tow too
watch the videos
it will help to understand what i have wroten for u
