Hi fellas, I hope someone here might know a thing or two about painting on a double bass. I've been wanting to paint some artwork on my bass for the longest time but I'm not sure exactly how to go about it. So, here's what I'm wondering: - is it a good idea? Does painting the instrument affect its sound quality? - What kind of paints should I use? I usually paint with acrylics, but if there is a special kind of paint for this sort of job I don't really know about it. - Do I need to paint the surface with gesso, binder, something else? - Any special precautions I should keep in mind? Any other help would be much appreciated, I have no idea what to do. I don't want to ruin my bass. Thanks!
