Kaleea Instrument painting advice needed (7) Instrument painting advice needed 13 Sep 06

I recently was given a poor, pathetic, horribly made Pakistani harp which by no means could be described as a Musical instrument. Plucking a string gives all the sonority as a plunked Qtip. Other than that, it is quite pretty to look at, and has a nice furniture quality finish. (ok, my tongue was definitely in my cheek on that one!)
Therefore, I've decided to paint some lovely Celtic designs on it to at least give the poor thing the appearance of dignity.
I'm wondering if I need to use some type of cleaner on the finish for the spots where I'm going to paint the designs? If so, what specific product might I use?
