I wanted to personalize my new hoop drum but I'm no artist.

So I used decals printed out on my printer.

I needed craft glue to hold the decals to the frame. And those decals will slide around, so you have to "anchor" them down with one hand while smoothing them out with the other.

If I'd used an oil-based varnish then the white background of the decals would have turned clear. But I used a water-based varnish because I hold the drum so close to my face and I didn't want to introduce bad smells.

What a great idea! I appreciate knowing about water-based varnish, and agree it makes more sense for your instrument.
Thank you!
Thank you! I am surprisingly delighted by it.
