fookgub Posted August 25, 2006 Report Share Posted August 25, 2006 I'd like to try a translucent black nitro finish on my guitar project. I don't own a compressor or spray gun, so I'm pretty much stuck with rattle cans and brush/wipe on products. I spent some time this morning looking for suppliers of trans black in rattle cans and I couldn't find any. ReRanch has some translucent colors, but no black, and stewmac only has clear and opaque black. Does anyone know of a supplier that sells trans black in a spray can? Failing that, could I simply mix up some black dye and lacquer, brush it on, then spray my clear coats as normal? What sort of dye would I want to use to get a translucent black in that case? Any tips for getting even color? Any other applications hints -- thinning/brush type/etc? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
