Behlens Nitro, Does It Need Thinning?

Recommended Posts

i have some behlens nitro and thinner i got from stew mac and i was wondering if its nessecary to thin it to a 1:1 ratio. it ses that on the thinner but not on the nitro.

im wondering because i did this and it does not coat very well its too thin, even thinner than the waterbased stuff from stew mac.

Behlen's stringed instrument lacquer is ready to shoot, I think; I always try shooting straight out of the tin first, and adjust thinner as necessary, and rarely ever more than 15-20%, usually closer to 5%. All depends on your shooting conditions, gun settings, etc. Experiment a little.
