Inspired by the white sitar mod i’ve painted this tanpurabody also in white using Bio Pin™ waterbased organic white paint and Colortone™ high gloss waterbased finish. The patri, jawari and mankas are all made from Elforyn™, a modern synthetic ivory substitute. So also this one became a real “organic & vegan” instrument,… 100% suitable for vegetarians… 🙂 … and she looks very neat too.
Would you consider selling the tambura? Sorry if the question offended take care !
Wonderfull work, very lovely in white finishion
I did the same for a Dilruba … running before being able to walk 😉 — now trying to get the Jawari back in order. The original one doens’t buzz. Want to replace it with white one using polyester. I started the project to kind of follow the Apple white designs, sort of. Rounded the curves. I use Titanium white + Tinanium white pigment to balance an off white color. The binding is violin varnish. Multiple layers and wet sanding (1000/inch). Gives a satin finish. Gloss kind off kitch IMHO.
Looks fantastic! The all-white finish is quite striking.
