Thread Name: Making an angel harp
Subject: Making an angel harp
I recently saw an "angel harp." It's an old autoharp, with the buttons removed, painted up with decals and all, restrung to pentatonic scale....   Idea is, anyone can play it, nice and soothing...   Pretty rediculous, but the idea is catching on. My question is,   if I found an old autoharp to do this to.....   What kind of paint would I use?    The one I saw restored into an angel harp had the nice shiny look of a new autoharp.   Man, I bet it would be hard painting around those pins... Would I have to remove them?    Might be more of a chunk than I want to bite off....
