Tickler Ukulele #3 -Paint Job (Crehore)

I've already shown you glimpses of my custom-built Tickler Ukulele #3 in progress, but here's a peek of the actual headstock being painted.
The bottom photo shows a test strip of a few do-dads painted on a sample piece of maple.
 Lou Reimuller (luthier) did the most beautiful job building this wonderful concert ukulele and it is really getting to the final stages now. Yes, it has been slow going, but this uke is special.
I just hope my paint job will live up to the rest of the amazing and intricate details on this uke.
