Lordy- I hope the latter- because I just finished slathering on every color in the rainbow- and it is bright.
I ran rainbows up every strand- at different points, so that it is just a mash of color. I used oil pencils since I have a lot of control with them.
I decided that the plain burn was just too dull- and it needed a little brightening up. It is bright now- my ‘Rainbow Harp’. I’ll take some photos tomorrow after I finish the corner knots and before I glue it into the soundbox. I still need to sand more on the walnut to eliminate irritating sharp corners. I like rounded more than sharp in any case. There are still some things I’d like to make better, but time is running out, so I need to keep moving forward.
Besides, I’m sick to death of sanding on the harp and grinding on Emily- I want to start finishing.
Impatience never led to a better job though- I know that for sure.
