1. Prepare the Fender Stratocaster electric guitar stencil. You can print it or draw it directly from the monitor. Pay attention, that it is necessary to draw not only a guitar outline but also an overlay on the case, pickups, a bridge, buttons, a neck and frets on a fretboard.

2. Roll a layer of violet clay about two millimeters thick. Take a piece of wire and put it on the clay. Insert the wire with a handle or a special acrylic roller.

3. Attach the stencil. Press it with your fingers.

4. Cut out the guitar with a knife. If the clay is soft and deformed under the fingers, then put it for a few minutes in the fridge or freezer.

1. Cut out the stencil from the stencil onto the body. Put it on a thin layer of white clay.

2. Cut out the overlay. Prepare two pickups and one bridge. In the photo – these are three identical in size black rectangle.

3. Screw the screw pin into the housing. You can even insert a pin and a loop into the body before baking. Attach a cardboard vulture to the guitar and cut it with a knife (this can also be done before baking).

4. Stick the overlay and to its pickups, bridge. If there are irregularities between the violet layers, then it’s time to fix them. Bake the guitar again. Draw black pencils with black paint.

1. To make frets, cover the fretboard first with white paint.

2. Then either remove the raw paint with a cotton disc or a rag or wait until the paint has dried and removed it with a knife.

Cover the guitar with varnish (I used shipboard) and attach a blank for the key fob to it. Done!
