Painting Tutorials?

For the life of me I cannot find an tutorials on the proper way to paint wood (of the arcade stick variety). I’ve done some painting, but it’s always been things like cars or pewter/resin figurines.

I’m planning out my first stick, and I want it to be a nice even shiny piano black, like a yamaha grand or an antec sonata. (Something along those lines anyway)

Anybody have any advice or links to a tutorial to be able to do the kind of thing I want?

here you go

Interesting, adding hand glaze to it 4-8 times over a month is definetly not something I would have thought of.

That was exactly what I was looking for crimson, thanks!
