Nitrocellulose Guitar Paint Kit - Candy Apple Red
Recreate the Candy Apple Red vintage finish with our complete aerosol spray can finishing kit. This kit comprises everything you need to go from your bare wood body to a high gloss classic Candy Apple finish.
What's in the kit?
3 x 320 grit Sandpaper Sheets (for finish sanding the bare wood body before sealing)
2 x Grey Cellulose Sealer Primer Aerosols
1 x Metallic Cellulose Paint Aerosol (Either silver or gold, please select which you'd like using the box above)
1 x See-Through Red Nitrocellulose Lacquer Aerosol
2 x Clear Gloss Nitrocellulose Lacquer Aerosols
3 x 600 grit Wet/Dry Sandpaper Sheets (for denibbing between coats of sealer and paint)
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)
This will give you a Candy Apple Red finish done the authentic way, using the see through red lacquer over a metallic base coat to give that depth and intensity of colour seen on the originals.
Do I need anything else?
If you are spraying a particularly porous wood such as Ash or Mahogany you will need to use a grain filler first - both our water based and thixotropic grain fillers are suitable, available here: Fillers
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.
