Complete Nitrocellulose Guitar Body Paint Kit - Metallic Colours
This kit, in easy-to-use aerosol form, will take you from bare wood to a stunning gloss metallic cellulose paint finish. The included paint, abrasives and polish are enough for a professional finish on one guitar or bass body.
What's in the kit?
3 x 320 grit Sandpaper Sheets (for finish sanding the bare wood body before sealing)
2 x Aerosol Spray Cans White Cellulose Sealer Primer
1 x Aerosol Spray Can of your choice of metallic colour paint (choose from the drop down list)
2 x Aerosol Spray Cans Clear Gloss Nitrocellulose Lacquer
3 x 600 grit Wet/Dry Sandpaper Sheets (for denibbing between coats of primer and top coat)
1 x Set of 600 - 2000 grit Wet/Dry Sandpaper Sheets (for polishing once the lacquer has dried)
3 x Microfibre Polishing Cloths (for applying liquid polishing compound)
1 x Set of RF3, RF5 and RF7 Liquid Polishing Compounds (for bringing the finish to a high gloss shine)
2 x Pairs Nitrile Gloves (to wear while spraying)
Do I need anything else?
For safety you should wear a filtered facemask while spraying. The filters must be A2 grade, suitable for organic vapours. We recommend wearing the included gloves. Also, wear an apron and ensure your arms are covered to minimise the risk of getting wet lacquer on your skin. Goggles should be worn at all times.
I want to use a spray gun, can I use this kit?
This kit comprises only of aerosol spray cans. If you have a spray gun or HVLP kit and would like to use that instead, you can purchase all of the above items separately to make up the kit - all sealers, primers, paints and lacquers are available in bottles for use with spray guns.
The usual colour caveats and disclaimers apply: The appearance of paints can depend on base coat and usage. Always test for suitability on an inconspicuos area or scrap piece first. Images displayed are previews for general guidance only, the difference in displays and your particular application mean that your finish will likely look a bit different to the one shown. The nitrocellulose top coat naturally ages, with time it will discolour and crack, an effect seen on vintage instruments. The speed at which this happens is down to how it is applied, and how the instrument is handled afterwards.
