Looks like you could just smear some blobs of paint on your guitar.
Start with blue blob > red blob > purple blob > white blob.

I have an idea.. do it like the ESP Truckster James Hetfield signature.

Paint in this order:

White primer,
Pink,
Red,
Blue,
Black.

Then sand down through the layers, to make it look like a relic.

That would be BADASS.

i would make line where the black and whit meet without the other colors,

then i would put the blue down by riping tape and making random edegs for the blue

then put the red down in the same way but have overlap some of the blue/ white/ and black to give it that look


nice job on the design, where did you make it?

It actually started as a photo of me which I messed around with and then for fun decided to load it up into the Kisakae thing but it looked pretty cool so I decided to use it on my next guitar.

Cheers for all the help

To give it a "relic" look. There's a good chance there's only a small bit of binding too

THIS IS THE WAY TO DO IT. listen to him. but make sure you bake all the paint before you start to sand.

It's based on an ESP Eclipse II in black, which has binding. Hetfield bought one, then dumped a few layers of old car primers on it, before touring. So, when the primer rubbed off, the binding was exposed. They copied that for his signature model.

before sanding, leave the body to lay in the sun for a few hours a day for a few days. the sun will 'bake' the paint, and harden it all the way through so its easier to sand down. sometimes, if you dont and you use a lot of paint, if you start to sand, it may not be 100% dry and the sanding will screw it up.

edit: OR, when the guitar is finished, if you lay it on something like carpet, the imprint of the carpet will actually be in the paint because it was still a little soft.
