Well I've seen this idea of covering a guitar with newspaper going around UG, and I was wondering if [and how] I could stain newspaper with a reddish/cherry color and then put it on my guitar.

If this was even possible, I was wondering if I should...
stain the paper before applying it to the guitar [but I might end up w/ and uneven coat]
stain the paper after its on the guitar before applying a clear coat/gloss
or my dumbest idea of all... mixing the stain with mod podge and applying that over the top of the newspaper once it's on the guitar

I also really like some candy coat ideas some guys posted. Anyone willing to explain a little more on that idea?

I know this is gonna sound like a pretty dumb idea to a lot of you but I was just curious.

cover it in paper and then use a red candy

I spose staining the actual paper could work in the ways you listed,

or, you could scan in a bunch of news paper, or d/l pics of the net or w.e and use photo shop to get it to the exact red you want, print it out, and then clear coat over that.

or

you put normal un coloured news paper over and put like a candy red clear over the top, coloured clear coat basically, no staining.
