Swirl Painting Guitar

Dean, from the United Kingdom, has set up a container of liquid to practice an astounding technique. He has over 25 years of experience in spraying and finishing, but most often films his swirling. Dean says that swirling is for anyone of any age, so if someone has a project they feel needs a custom finish they should swirl it.
In this case, he uses yellow and black paint in the tub. It slowly spreads as he drops paint, allowing some to disperse. The mesmerizing process continues until he has attained the pattern he desires. Once he swirls the colors, he carefully dips in the body of an electric guitar to coat it in the paint.
The final guitar look amazing, and later he will clear coat and polish it to a high gloss. Dean can swirl plastic, wood, or metal and uses many paints, including acrylics, polyester, and polyurethane. He can also do multiple colors for a finish, and the most popular item to swirl is the electric guitar. No wonder, with how stunning this one turns out!
