The Piglet guitar build project, part 8
Applying the first coat of brown finish to the rear of the guitar
The latest instalment of this project report has been a long time in coming, in part because of the long time it takes during the whole painting and sanding back process, but also because of a number of mishaps which happened when applying the brown finish to the rear and sides of the guitar. One time, some flies got into the freshly painted surface (which otherwise was a nice smooth and even coverage), and another time the paint formed "wrinkles" (maybe because of grease not cleaned away properly). On both occasions the finish had to be stripped back and re-applied.

Next up: pink paint!
