    So if you can swirl paint a guitar in a few minutes, why do we bother with 50billion (exaggerated) sprayed coats and weeks of waiting and sanding? What if you just put regular single color paint in the tub?

    That's either a real cool paint job or I'm finally getting the flashbacks they promised me.

    He only needs like half a bajillion coats of clear coat..plus decades of colour sanding and months of polishing.

    It would look blotchy and the paint would be thin in places.

    The swirl isn’t perfect but the multiple colors hide all the imperfections and almost add to the swirl
