Nope. Do you remember that old tv commerical about making your own decorator gift wraping paper? To swirl paint something, you get a container that's deeper than whatever you want to paint with. You fill it with water. You get the paint colors you want and then float them ontop of the water. To swirl paint a guitar, you have to strip everything off the guitar, make sure it's clean and whatever to the primer stage, then dip the guitar into the paint, thru the water and pull it back out and drip dry.
