    Do some searching, son! There are a lot of swirl articles here, I have 2 done by Perle , which you can find off of ebay, and 1 from Herc Fede, who isn't taking custom orders at this time.

    you need 1 large container full of water and add Borax to increast surface tension, then use Humbrol Enamal paint to create the swirl pattern in the water before submerging a guitar body that has been previously sealed and primed with an undercoat colour with wax to plug holes.

    Theres some youtube videos on this being done. Check there
