How To Paint A Guitar: 5150 Project Day 15

The final color for the project is black. Only a few black stripes are needed so I decided to paint it last. My other option would have been to paint the entire guitar black first, then white, and finally red. I was worried about having to spray too many coats of white to actually cover up the black and decided instead to do it last.

The technique I used was to lay down a strip of 3/4 inch tape where I wanted the black stripe to be. Then I put tape around the area and pulled up the 3/4 inch strip of tape. This gave me a clear area to spray to achieve the desired size black strip.
