*Not sure if this is the right board so , Mods, please feel free to move this**

My big sister has been doing some fundraising for Habitat NOLA (see here for more info & her pic) so she asked me if I could help her with her next project.  Roll Eyes

She asked me to custom paint a white violin with "something Scottish & New Orleans related" which would then be signed by scottish musicians (im in a major Scottish Choir) and gifted to Habitat NOLA to auction of & raise funds.

I spent today painting and will get the signatures and doo the varnishing latr in the week. Just thought I would share   Grin :

Mmm I love this
Mainly because I play the instrument, but also because when I see people paint instruments, I don't like it (seems too much); but this seems like just enough =DD

I love it as is, but it would have been great to see some tartan on there, like on the scroll.  Good job, though, can't wait to see pics of it varnished!

Just thought I would share the finished signed & varnished violin:

This will soon be winging it's way to New Orleans and will hopefully be liked.  Grin
