Hello Luthiers, I was never much of a painter (outside of paint cans and rollers) but have been told "rattlecan" finishes are a newb-friendly way to paint a guitar. Would anyone be willing to offer advice on rattlecan finishes? I've seen many threads which contain bits of info about the process, but usually they just offer links to reranch without much explanation of what to use or why. I will post pics after I start, and maybe this thread can serve as a more comprehensive guide for new folks like me. So, on to my plans. I'd like to spray paint a sanded pawn-shop affinity P body (sanded so the poly remains but is currently a matte) a nice grass green (or a similar color). Major questions include: 1. What qualities in a paint should I look for or avoid? Enamel? Lacquer? Acryllic? I know very little about any of these terms so any advice or information is appreciated! 2. Do I need a primer and if so, what brand/type should I purchase? 3. What safety equipment or considerations do I need for spraying? 4. Can anyone make reccomendations for a color/brand of spray product?
