Back in February of this year I became a little.. obsessed.. with achieving an actual metal flake paintjob on a fake plastic guitar. You know, something like real world guitar metal flake finishes:
Well, I finally figured out how to replicate an awesome looking metallic flake paintjob, and I spent most of February doing a whole bunch in different styles and colors, using Guitar Hero III Les Paul faceplates as the base. They totally rock, but I went a little overboard. I have too many!
Here’s an example; this one is black metallic spraypaint, with green to gold iridescent fine flakes.
The larger (medium) flakes are awesome as well; here’s a closeup of the pink metallic flake I made for my wife.
Well, I am now selling most of the metallic flake Les Paul faceplates I made on Etsy:
These were all a labor of love, and they look amazing. Hopefully they can find a good home to a fellow fake plastic rocker who owns a Les Paul fake plastic guitar for the Xbox 360 or PS3, and appreciates an awesome fake plastic guitar paintjob as much as I do..
