Faux flame and Faux binding.
Acetone spill, well .....you can see the result. Is it worth it trying to restore Faux finish?
If so any suggestions/tutorials? What kind of paint to use?
Worth a try I think
Guitars not worth the effort to refinish. Maybe paint or finish the damaged spot, looks like black lacquer would do it, then hand paint in the white lines best you can.
Otherwise I'd leave it like it is.
Spilling the Acetone, that would have to be Me...
Happily its not really a very valuable guitar...
For fun I may try to paint it and see how good a job I can do..
I finally gt around to working on this ...
Spayed with black laquer and so far so good.
I am using concentrated white pigment mixed with laquer to
paint in the faux binding. Problem... too white!
any suggestions on what to add to pigment to add a bit of yellow/amber look.
I have some similar age instruments which have that yellowed look - I recall that it looks like a yellowing clear coat over the white. You could use a yellowish clear laquer to put a coat over the white, which won't affect the black areas much.
