Spray paint is my mortal enemy. Especially spray paint drips. I’ve been finishing an electric guitar for months now, because every time I spray a new coat on, I get drips. When I get drips, my SOP is to sand through to the primer in a fatal attempt to level them. Then I swear, a lot. But I just got a set of scrapers the other day, and even though I haven’t managed to sharpen them satisfactorily, I decided to break ‘em out. I’d put another coat on my guitar a few days ago, and of course got some drips (I really, really suck at this whole aerosol lacquer game). Dull scraper to the rescue! With some careful scraping, I managed to rid myself of those pesky drips without scraping through to the primer! I’ll still wet sand until it’s ready for another color coat, but I think that dull scraper just saved me some sand-throughs. I might actually finish the guitar in this lifetime now. Now I just need to practice sharpening those glorious steel saviors….
