I saw this skirt that I adore (I wisted it) but can't afford.  I made my uke match it.   I hope you like it!

GORGEOUS!  I want to do this to my mandolin... but I am really scared about putting paint on it.  Did you prime the wood somehow?  This is soooo coool.

Thanks you guys!!!  It is the least expensive uke you can get and it'll still play music so I wasn't too worried about it.  I didn't paint all of it.  I drew out and then cut and pasted the flowers and painted the black and white parts.  I used mop-n-glo for a topcoat.  It seems to be working great!  I'd practice on a piece of finished wood first just to make sure...especially if it is a nice mandolin.  I used a water-based glue and it started out pink BTW.  I think it actually sounds better now that it is painted.  Wink

Oh yeah...no prepping but the black probably should have been.

That's pretty awesome!

My soprano uke is already red and my boyfriend painted a heart on it and my concert one is actually pretty nice or else I'd probably do something fun like that too.

Thanks  Smiley   I want to see pictures of the red one.  I love painted instruments and wish everyone to have one.  Of course I also wish I could play (better?).  hee hee.
