Nice. I'm with everyone else: what kind of paint and did you clear coat so it doesn't scratch off as easily? Oh can't tell if it's matte or gloss base so if matte, did you coat before painting? Don't know if acrylic paint absorbs and spreads.
I do really like it.

Very nice! Great proportions and use of the shape of the uke. You could have a future in body art! :-)

Beautiful! You now have a unique ukulele that is very special.

Makes me think of the Yellow Submarine ukulele that someone posted a while back that I still daydream about. No rich admirer bought me that for my birthday. Sigh. :-)

Absolutely lovely! Just wondering, how did you decide on the flowers?

Lovely! I hope the top flower doesn't chip away with strumming.

I'm with everyone else, what paint did you use. I'd think acrylics would bead up on the finish. Is it oil paint?

Regardless, it's very unique and will be a real attention-getter.

wow,i find your question easy but hard to answer lol..i just wanted to put purple flower on my uke since i love purple color. the bottom flowers were just random and the hibiscus usually always related to Hawaii stuff..but i did not wanna have the traditional red color.

i was actually worried strumming at first but i keep playing my uke and it is not affecting the paint at all.maybe because of the sealer i used..
