Art Deco-inspired Jazzmaster guitar, painted with DNA Custom Aerosols!
Have you ever thought about customising your guitar? Our friend John Norcic shared with us this guitar he painted with DNA Aerosols!
“I combined the Gold and Silver DNA Flake product to create a champagne-coloured flake coat over a pin-striped vinyl Art Deco layer down on the metallic base to create a very subtle variation. When covered with candy, it boosts the pattern at various angles. Because of the candy’s depth, you can see the patterns only from certain angles.”
