So a friend just gave me one of his kendamas. Im in love with it, I pretty much havent put it down since i got it. I’d like to change the color of it eventually. I was thinking of striping the ball (sorry dont know what its called) with acetone and then blasting it and painting it the color of my preference. I was thinking of using latex spraypaint, or any other sprayable paint that would give the kendama a little more “tacky” feel.
Any reasons why I shouldn’t do this? Does acetone have a negative effect on wood? Would painting it cause problems if I dont do it correctly?
