Default Advice needed re: Inlay hoops.

Hi all...

About to start my first attempt at doing inlay hoops... The inlay groove is already cut. It's a 1/2" groove and the depth is perfect for the Champagne Sparkle wrap I'm doing.

So I'm looking for tips on 2 things:

1: How to precisely cut the strips of wrap to the proper thickness. And;

2: Do I want to paint the hoops (Black Gloss Acrylic) before or after installing the inlay? If I do it before, should I mask off the area where the inlay goes, or will the glue (3M NF-30) stick to the paint?

Thanks for any and all assistance!

Robert

I've seen quite a few hoops with inlays. They all had black paint under the inlays, so paint away, and THEN put on the inlays.

As for the cutting, I wouldn't know...

Thanks Caddy. That one reply was more helpful than about 8 replies at Ghostnote...

Bless Drummerworld!
