Found these awesome mini guitar replicas on eBay thinking they would be great tap handles. They're perfect size for the job but I would like to coat them in resin with a threaded insert attached to the back. These models are too delicate as is. The tuning pegs, strings, and even the guitar neck are very delicate but I think a strong layer of clear resin will do the trick. I've been searching around and learning about the resin process which seems fairly straight forward.
I would like the guitars to be dipped in thick clear-coat resin so that it will have a heavy plastic coat. It seems that resin pours very thinly and I haven't found a resource that may suggest a dip would work. Or that a thick resin pour would be possible. OR perhaps I can dip multiple thin coats. Any suggestions? Links?
This may take some more research and trial runs but they'll be awesome tap handles when done. Rock on!
