I'm doing a project that will be donated as an auction item for a fund raiser to send a mission group to Africa to help aids babies. Anyway I'm going to have the body painted in an African tribal-esque theme. Something along the lines of the Kai Eckhardt bass. The artist is working in acrylic so I'm just thinking ahead as to the lacquer. I'm thinking that a layer of de-waxed shellack before lacquer clear, does that sound right? Other ideas? I think I'll see if I can get a test piece with the same paint cause I figure I'll only have one chance at this one.
