    Moving air is important to drying.

    The shed it is. It's been out there for three nights so far. The windows are louvered with screens behind. There she will stay. Out of sight, but not out of mind. Working on that...

    This is my second sparkle guitar. I did the '51 perhaps nine years ago. Time flies. I know why I waited so long to do another. It's a lot of work, time and effort.

    I won't wait as long to do another. I learned a lot from trial and error that you can't learn just from online experts. Don't get me wrong, I would've never tried it without the help of generous guys like Buckocaster sharing all of their secrets, but it does take technique that requires a modicum of practice.

    The '51 was cool but messy. This one's flawed but better. The next one will be near perfect.

    I screwed this one up with the heat gun because I sprayed on a humid day and clouded the clear coat. Dag nab it. I won't make that mistake again.

    Patience is tough for me. If I ever retire I'm going to finish a few killer sparkle guitars. I may even move away from rattle cans.

    Thanks Buckocaster. That Krylon Fusion Clear seems to build a lot better than the Krylon clear acrylic from ten years ago. Good stuff.

    Thanks. I have a few more pics but they aren't so great. Kind of blurry...
