Whilst a number of people are happy with my black finish/white lettering look, I'm continuing to look for ways of making my builds look a bit more fancy :)

This my latest attempt - some decoupage paper I found on ebay stuck on top of a layer of white primer and another quick layer of satin clear to seal it.

I've been using a paint pen and rubber stamp for the lettering but I'd like to find a method which transfers a little more paint so I'm not quite there yet.

Nevertheless I'm pretty pleased with the result :joy: :joy: :joy:

I decided I didn't like the white (or that the "BIG BROTHER" was wonky) so I removed most of the white and replaced it with black, which I like a little better.

A tacky take on point to point.

Didn't look too bad after basic wiring.

oCiFuzz. It's a Fuzz-E-Cat with some components swapped out to open it up a little bit more (the original is quite compressed). Thicccccc acryllic paint with a clear resin coat to make it extra shiny and gooey. Oh, and top-mounted jacks, because it should have that. :idea:

Thanks, buds! Using that much paint for a finish made it really difficult to work with, especially since I added a few drops of silicone to the paint in order to make the cells. Even though the paint dried, it was still a little soft to the touch (I could make indentations with my fingernail), so even with the resin finish I am not sure if it will have the same durability as my normal resin finishes. It's basically hard metal > fairly soft paint > layer of hard plastic. So, if one were to apply enough pressure to the finish, I can imagine the paint giving way and leaving an air pocket, unless the resin seals it so that there's a vacuum. So far, normal use seems to work fine. Time will tell.. :lol:

Finally finished a project I've been meaning to do for years, and reshoused the head from a monster 4x10 bass combo into its own enclosure.

It's definitely not perfect but I got to have fun playing with new tools so I'm good with it.
