Sorry if this is the wrong board for this but I don't know where to post.

Okay, so I have a cheap acoustic guitar and I can't stand it being so darn ugly. Anyone got any ideas for decorating it?

It has been finished with some sort of gloss so I don't think paint would stick. If you know a way around this, please share.

Thank yoooou Cheesy

If you wanted to paint it, you could sand it first. Unless you plan on playing it, and then I have no idea how decorating it or sanding it would affect the acoustics.

Here is what one freind from England had to say about Modge Podge...perhaps this will help...she just adda a little water to it and mixes it in.....

  i use PVA for absolutely EVERYTHING in various amounts of layers and if i want something weather/water proof i chuck over a good helping of acrylic varnish...

if you look on the back of the mod podge bottle youll see that its basically watered down pva glue..

Acrylic paint should work , that sticks to just about anything.

It sets waterproof too.     Id never have the balls to decorate my aucoustic its just lovely the way it is.
