Making a 49ers Guitar – Part 5 – Airbrushing C-Pick

This was the most difficult part of our endeavor, for sure.

None of us had ever done any airbrushing, but thanks to some nice people at AC Moore, we discovered Frisket Paper, which allowed us to cut the design out and then airbrush it on. I won’t describe the complete process, but let’s just say it was a lot of tape and frisket paper.

Check it out….

After all the paint was added, look at the mess!

Pretty amazing for our first try!

If you look closely, you can see one error that arose when we pulled the tape off. Some green stuck to the tape, but that should be an easy fix. We’ll adjust a few of the lines and make it cleaner maybe as well, but there comes a point at which trying to fix it might end up making it worse.

Either way! It’s awesome!!!
