    Going to buy a couple of pots to practise on before the bass gets it. Looking at my local hobby shop they have metallic, gloss and matt. All enamel.

    Are they all as good as each other to use? don't know if the metallic would be thicker than the gloss/matt for example.

    Any advice appreciated, thanks

    Sub'd. Sounds like a fun project. Post progress pics if you can.

    Went with gloss. Dont think I stirred the paint enough before using it, was a bit clumpy. Pippets were thin and blew bubbles. For the green paint I cut the end of the pippet first, much difference between that and the black and red.
    Didnt have any wood primed to use either but it's all a learning curve...

    Any comments appreciated thanks
