To paint a guitar...Part 2

So...more guitar painting. Continuing from the last installment, I did more sanding and finished applying primer.  I sanded down the primed surface to a smooth finish to prep for applying paint.

This is the first round of paint.  I let it sit for a bit before applying the second coat.

I applied a second coat of red.  If you’re asking why I didn’t sand down the brush strokes in this step...’s because I’m adding a texture to the red underpainting with a sponge.  This will provide more visual interest for the background.  I’m going to let this settle overnight.  The next installment is where the real fun begins: painting the ᎤᎧᏖᎾ on it. The dreaded Cherokee serpent is about to rock!
