    I had a picture in my mind and I got close so I am very happy
    all the layers do take up a bit of time.

    Thanks

    I dont usually like all the rust and cracking, but i think it works on this guitar. I especially like the letters on the back. Well done.

    I was able to get the real rust to look close to the fake rust (painted)
    so it tied together nicely.

    Thanks
