View Full Version : Continued abuse of my Eleuke

I really enjoy playing on my Eleuke and travelling with it.

It looks like I'll have to get a respectable looking Eleuke now as I accidentally spilled some paint on my first one.

Honest, it was an accident.

Gnarly! I dig it.

Trying to make one of your own dipped eleukes, eh? Anything go wrong with paint getting into the pots?

Yeah, actually, if you look at the video, I was already painting my Eleuke before they showed their dips. But I'm sure lots of people have been paintig their solid woods before me and Eleuke.

The brown rosewood just didn't really spark the fun and that's when I started to experiment. Its fun and it feels more like me so I want to pick it up and give it a run.

I am watching the electrical ports to make sure I don't damage them but the paint helps prevent that.

I am using medium viscosity acrylics so the paint doesn't run everywhere like water. THere is fairly good control with acrylics.
