Paint-pouring pickguards isn't my only creative obsession. I also have an affinity for 2-dimensional woodwork - especially fine, detailed work that usually employs hand-tools to obtain results (although I'd really love a scroll-saw to help with this sometimes).
In October, 2020, I was commissioned to make a wall-art piece for someone who loves the New York Giants. After working with the client on a design, I set out to work. The piece started from raw wood, and progressed through sanding, painting (using paint-pour techniques, of course), and resin.
When you pour paint, there is quite a bit of overflow. And if you're using the right kind of catch-pan, the paint can be peeled off the bottom.
Traveling back to my very first pour... I wildly overestimated how much paint was needed for my bass pickguard... and was left with a LOT of leftover paint. This is an example:
