Quite smooth however there is some rough spots which I expected and it suits the guitar. I did a ton of sanding.
I am in awe of the guys that can produce a flawless glossy finish.
If I did it again I'd seal the wood first.
Ok. I am pretty close to pulling the trigger on their website. I wonder how it would finish with true oil? I like the zero voc I finish in the basement and the wife gets mad when I spray lacquer. Lol
Tru Oil works with milk paint
Milk paint requires some sort of oil finish - without it, it just looks chalky. I usually use pure tung oil on my milk painted projects, but any number of other oils or oil blends will work.
Another cool thing you can do with milk paint is layer two (or more) colors). Then, as you play your guitar and create wear on the finish, the underlying colors, and eventually the raw wood, will start peeking through.
Well I ordered some milk paint and hemp oil, I'll post a pic of the finished guitar when there are complete.
Alright I got my milk paint on and 2 coats of hemp oil. But it feels so rough? I don't need a big shine just a little smoother. Would tung oil do that?
Did you rub out the milk paint before oiling? I rub it out with a Scotchbrite pad after each coat. I usually use at least two coats of milk paint, sometimes more as required. The oil alone won't have a too much effect on smoothness, perhaps a little, but more so on sheen. If you want to built the finish coats, you can use an oil-varnish blend.
I did rub the milk paint with 400 grit sand paper. I just rub on a coat of Tru oil now. Let's see what happens now.
I did about 10-12 coats of paint
Sanded the first 6 with 400 and subsequent with 600
After all that about 4 applications of hemp oil
