Wow, that looks amazing! *__* <3 I love it! :)
How did you do that? Acrylics? My friend wants to paint hers and we're searching for a few ideas and tips. :)

Thank you :) Yes I did use acrylics. I just sanded the ukulele down first to get rid of the glossy finish, did 2 coats of white paint, then painted the colored area, then the designs, and finished it up with a matte clear coat.
