Tortoiseshell

Many people have thought that these “tortoiseshell” pick guards must take hours to paint. In fact, they are quite simple compared to a lot of other painting I do on thise micro guitars. Outlining and then staying within those lines on the pick guard is the hardest part.
A red base layer, then loosely mix the same red and some black, and dab it on unevenly with a tiny brush – it gets the look done quite well! Certainly more simple than the sunburst design on the body…
(this particular pendant is a guitar belonging to Henrik from The Foreign Resort!)
