tape over where the hole will be drilled and you should be fine.  Always always always use a starter bit.

Thanks Jacob. The Maestro is in an old EHX Doctor Q that I hated and couldn't even give away. It's a great looking enclosure. Wish I knew where I could buy some like that. Any tips?

I think http://www.pedalenclosures.com/ (http://www.pedalenclosures.com/) have some similar style enclosures.

Those are well done swirls. I don't think I'll ever try to do swirls personally, but I do like looking at them.

I tried doing a swirl once and it was a total Fatality and Brutality, really bad... Better I keep on with my etchings...
I have used the YY enclosures from pedalenclosures, they're great. I have one of my pedals in the Builders menu of the website ;D

I have only tried two of these so far but I might try a couple more. While I was quite happy with the actual swirl result I seem to have a problem with extra paint collecting around the bottom of the enclosure. Perhaps I am using too much paint or a poor mix? I used Dragonfly's technique but I might try a dip next time around.

Anyway, I tried two similar colour patterns:

Dried and dressed - not a fan of the knob on the blue swirl:

Title: Re: Show off your Swirl pedals/enclosures
Post by: rousejeremy on February 23, 2012, 02:35:14 PM
You have to mix your acrylics with water. It takes some experimenting to find out exactly how much.
After a bunch of clear coats, sand with 600 or 800 gril to get rid of the bumps that might be left over from the paint an then spray some more clear on.
I've been meaning to try epoxy resin finishing like cloudscapes uses. Real thick and dries like a mirror.

LPB, first dip swirl. I really like it.

(http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/483366_467311756627291_1459469167_n.jpg)

Echo Base (Ian M. design) for my buddy. Another dip swirl. It was supposed to be swirly like above... didn't turn out that way. I do like the "water drop" paint style though. Not sure if I used enough/too much borax. The swirl/drop style fits this beautiful delay I think quite nicely.

Post by: SmoothAction on August 18, 2012, 01:01:13 AM
My experience...

The dip swirl works like in the above videos, but you can't use acrylic paint. You must use ENAMEL paint. Enamel is sticky, but fluid and it floats on top of the water. I've been using the cheap way (enamel spray paint sprayed into the cap to collect, then poured into the water and borax mixture). I've yet to use proper liquid enamel, which is what is used in the above videos. Try it with spray paint over a white primed enclosure. It's fun!

What do you dippers use to dip the pedal with? The drip method works fine, but those big swirls you get with the dip method, I want.

Scratch that, coat hanger.

There's a method that uses carrageenan (a food thickener)and acrylic paint, but I have yet to come across a good tutorial. Pro swirlers are very secretive of their methods.

Is there an alternative to the testors paint? Something that isn't as goopy/dries just a little slower? Maybe my water temperature is off, or something...
Title: Re: Show off your Swirl pedals/enclosures
Post by: haveyouseenhim on September 06, 2012, 12:36:26 AM
model master or humbrol..... ive heard of magic marble, but i think the process is different

testors should flow for a 2 to 2 1/2  mins on the water and dries instantly dry when it is pulled out of the water

I got my hands on some Marabu Easy Marble.. anyone tried that? Easy enough to use, dont need borax. But now the question is how do you guys apply finish onto the pedals? I tried Envirotex lite but the paint seems to rub off during application. Clear coat spray (I use Krylon arcrylic clear coat) doesnt bond well with the swirl paint either. Just some FYI for those who are thinking of trying, and hopefully get some answers ;D

Borax is being used with blowtorch repair jobs in my country and it is good for killing roaches. Plus in small quantities it's used as conjunctivitis medicine. Hence you can get it in pharmacy. The question is are they willing to sell it to you? Marabu Easy Marble are nice, but they do tend to dry fast. You need to work quick with them, and results are decent but not as good as those with enamel paints. I use acrylic clear coat and it's a killer for swirls. Nitro and Polyurethane just eat through the swirl. HB body is the name of the company, they are from Greece. But i guess you can get better solutions if you just try harder.

I used to wait until the bubbles were out of the paint after mixing the acrylics with water but I thought I'd give it a god with all the bubbles in the paint.
It turned out well. When the bubbles pop while moving the paint around it produced the effect seen here on the base.

That is some inspiring work!

I tried swirling last night following Dragonfly's tutorial. It turned out pretty well. I left it to dry overnight and it looked awful in the morning, with chunks of paint everywhere.

Can somebody tell me how long does it need to dry before you apply clear coat?

I think I got them at www.westfloridacomponents.com. Lots of good stuff. They seem to specialize in radios and such. They have a big selection of high end capacitors, lots of WIMA boxes. And resistors. Carbon composition. Those Dale resistors. If you're the spending type. Not a huge selection of resistor values, though. Not much to buy for your standard pots and hardware for pedals.

I any of you are using the acrylic paint method for swirling, avoid this brand. It has chunks in it that cause imperfections when dried and they won't even mix with water. I tried painting a box today and the paint slip around the primered enclosure like it was covered in oil.

And a Germanium Fuzz Face with those Beavis mods. I sold one long ago and tried another. Did not think much about wiring you see. Really the only thing worth adding is a bass cut and the feedback. I can just make noise, might sample and use in some electronic tracks. Or set just right the note sustain lightly oscillates then drops out. Hard to set but add a nice noise to the fuzz.

I set the feedback on a momentary stomp switch. Though I'd like to use a smoother actioned one. Not easy on the bare feet. But also wanted to add the LED for it just because. Didn't think about the wiring as it turn the normal LED indicator off when on. Didn't wire them separate. I don't know if there's a soft touch stomp switch that can also use an LED.

Fuzz Face with extra stuff and some old capacitors I got in a huge vintage lot (cheap). Bias, input gain and 5 way in. Two Russian transistors and it really sounds good. The one inbetween cap setting has a great low mid grind that;s emphasized.

Clark Gainster. A very good overdrive. Beats many tubescreamer likes. Though I guess it is one itself. I wish more blue came out in the paint. Mixed too much water with the other colors so they spread out too much.

Phase 45. Sound pretty good, not too swooshy. The trim pot needs to be turned full counter-clockwise to work, I wonder if a bit more would make a difference in phase.

I'm the only guy doing these I think.

I attempted using Envirotex on some swirled boxes. Pretty much all I make as it's been in the single digits in temperature most of this winter when ever I have time. My printer is very poor at printing on thick photo paper (mechanically) and I just like doing it most of all.

So excited after pouring this stuff as it seem to be perfect. The top is the sides and corners aren't.

The problem with the sides is that even with a smooth finish the bottom needs to be sealed so it doesn't peel off along with the undercoat. I can work to reduce the drips but it still easily peels off from the bottom. And you have to sand and cut the excess to allow the bottom plate to fit.

Next is that at the edges, the near 90* angle, the Envirotex does not stick. It runs over the edge and leaves the undercoat bare. So these pedals have a bit of scratch off the edges. Maybe a second coat might adhere with care but trying that once left too many uneven runs and waves. I won't mess with them any more for now.

The Red Llama build was a bit better as I had clear coated it a bit first. I hoped to eliminate that altogether, but might have to use it. But wait till warmer weather. Might use a mix of the two as the Envirotex gives such a satisfying coat on the top.  

I need some experimenting but don't want to ruin nice looking boxes.

I totally messed up the Bosstone with the sides but tried to see if just keeping the top would look ok.

These look great at these angles but the sides are pretty messed up with paint peels and rough spots. I used some crazy glue to seal down some peeled areas.

Good job for any of you guys using this stuff properly.

Another idea for getting the swirl look.

Looks like you want more control on how it comes out. I stopped that and like to let it do what it wants with a couple tricks. I found blowing on the paint makes it blend in cool ways. Helps it over the sides without having to tilt the box like I used to.  I also use a lot less paint. Like two tablespoons of say three colors each. Less colors, more paint. With about 15% water added. It covers it and will usually be paper smooth. I'm always going for a natural look like exotic stone or nebulae and such.

I might go back to some labeling if I ever get a better printer.

I made this without an LED with a side project trying out a DIY light plate. Never again with my resources. To much sawing and sanding. I'll just a buy a few from smallbear.

I hope people are still making swirly fuzzes.
This is a Prescription Electronics Experience pedal made using Justin Philpotts PCB with an added ground plane.
I was hoping for more yellow to match the knobs, but too much water in the paints made them bleed a bit.

I picked a BYOC TS style pedal on Kijiji for $20, so I gave it a spiffier paint job. First time using envirotex lite and it's worth every penny.
