Introduction: Miniature Electric Guitar
Have you ever think to decorate your place with colorful miniatures everywhere!
In this tutorial, I'll show you how to build a miniature replica electric guitar in a few simple steps out of popsicle sticks going through all the stages in detail.
Step 1: Sanding & Gluing
First thing first...
So print out a guitar vector shape in A4 paper then measure the wooden sticks on it, then glue it together using strong wood glue to create a wooden sheet, then wait enough time to totally dry.
Letting the wood dry completely is an important step that facilitates the process of cutting and sanding in the next stages.
Step 2: Cutting Out
Cut out the different shapes separately.
Step 3: Making the Box
Boil a wooden stick for 15 mins in the water to bend it around the guitar body to give it these smooth curves, then wait to try at least 12 hours.
and finally glue the upper, lower, and middle parts together.
Step 4: Coloring
in this stage, I applied multi-layers of Acrylic colors diluted with water until it looks fine.
Step 5: Decorating
For the strings, I used a nylon wire and for the Cord marks on the neck, I used a thin metal wire.
then cut out the tiny pieces to decorate your miniature to give it the replica look.
Step 6: Final Shape
For a glossy look apply a multi-layer of wood shine, It provides better hardness and protection to wood.
