    Default Have you painted a uke?

    I have a soprano Kala uke I want to put some personal touches on with some paint. I would like some ideas if you have any. I was also wondering if any of you have done this and if so do you have any pics to post that can share? Thanks!

    Here's an Alaska yellow cedar arch top I made a little over a year ago. Used acrylic paint for the design.

    Here is a cheappie I painted about a year ago. Nothing special, just wanted to do something cool with it, so I painted it and named it "Skye" then gave it to a local kid..

    Those are both really nice! I started thinking about it when I saw the tiki man on one. Do you all have any other ideas of something you might think would look good on a uke?

    I cant remember who, but somebody painted a "Franken Uke" inspired by Eddie VanHalen's infamous Frankenstrat. Looked pretty dang cool on a Uke.
