New Face for Guitar Case

The ta-da moment! In natural light. This work really pops.  Below, how it started. A few tentative
swaths of shimmery
gold and a thought that paisley would look good.

And there's a copper outline all way round.
Interesting beginnings. The yellow was a bit overwhelming and needed softening in the end.

The addition of green and fuchsia pointed the direction to take, bold and bright.
Here is a detail of the design. Click on it to make it larger. Tomorrow, after some minor tweaks, a high-gloss sealant will be brushed on.

I toy with the idea of trying a soft case. The hard shell ones are obvious but would the soft canvass-like gig bag take the paint? I have fabric paint and could give it a try.
