Here's a few images of a violin I finished recently.  The black background actually came on the violin, however it seemed kinda drab.  On the picture of the back, you can see the iridescent shimmer that was part of the original finish.  At first I was worried that the paint would change the tone, but then I realized the violin had really bad acoustics to begin with, and couldn't possibly get worse.  Much.  I ended up using Fine tip Silver paint markers from my local craft store to make the designs, and very little of the medium tip silver as well for the scroll work.

Hardest part:  Keeping my cats away from it while it dried!  Bad kitties.

Hope you like it!

That's gorgeous!  I was going to ask if the paint had changed the tone at all and then saw that you'd already altered it.  If my violin wasn't a family heirloom, it would be cool have a pretty design on it.

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.

Beautiful. As someone who doesn't play violin but loves music, this is something I'd proudly display on my wall. Great job.
