Hello all. I started making an electric violin, and is was deeply inspired by one of Mark Wood's instruments. It's a stingray pro, with gold details on the fingerboard. I wanted to recreate this look, but was having trouble deciding what material and technique to use. I considered liquid gold leaf, but I questioned the durability of the paint over time. Will the gold leaf be damaged by the strings, or vice versa? Thank you
