ToneMonkey Posted February 18, 2005 Report Share Posted February 18, 2005 Alright guys, some of you may remember the thread about the finish on old National guitars. It's the finish with the crystals that grow in the laquer. Well, I've found the right stuff to form the crystals and my mate has been experimenting with it. The problem that we have is that the crystals aren't having time to form. We've tried just thinning the (cellulose) laquer down but it's far from perfect. He's also been trying various meths, solvents, etc, etc. Do any of you finishing gurus know of a suitable retarder for cellulose? If possible I could do with some suggestions before I go home for the weekend (in about 2 hours). Cheers guys and as a reward, I'll tell you that if you dont thin down laquer (the car type) and turn the pressure up to full blast, you get cobwebs comming out. Dunno if it's safe but it made me laugh Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
