Here are a few of my completed pedals!

Shown: Crown Jewel, Mouse, Green Pony, Echo Royal, Silver pony 2. Not shown, spring reverb(prepainted enclosure), tremolo(painting as we speak decal is soundwave signature morphing into earthquake tremors ;)

I never claimed to be an artist or graphic designer. But had fun putting creative images to represent the pedal (breath of the wild lynel as centaur!)

Also learning decal tricks like alcohol to help them adhere better...
Now that I've figured that out I may or may not redo them...

Funny I never thought the enclosure would be the hardest part haha!

I told myself I can not start another until I finish the enclosures and complete the analog vibrato(troubleshoot phase).
Next on the docket divided octave! Cheers!

Thank you to the forum! What an incredible resource! You guys are awesome!

Great work! These are so much fun.

Based on your decals, I'll offer two suggestions. First, make them full face (or close), even if the design stops before you get to the edge. This way if there is a line that shows, it looks kind of intentional, like a border was designed into the look. The second is that you can melt those edges away with a good clear coat. It should match the brand of paint you used so it doesn't cause rippling or other damage, but it really does make the lines mostly invisible.

Keep up the good work, and make sure to keep posting, too.

Thank you for the tips. I definitely learned the lesson to match paints clear coats and primers. My first round was lizard scales! Hahaha...
