Rustin's Pc Over Acrylic Lacquer Colour Coat?

Recommended Posts


I'm constructing a semi-hollow and I plan on painting the sides a solid colour whilst dying the top and back. My goal is to have a consistent, easy to apply, hard finish. Rustin's PC looks like just the thing. I know the dye is compatible with Rustin's PC, but is good ol' auto acrylic lacquer in a rattle can also compatible with Rustins? The dye and acrylic finishes will be separated by binding so I don't need to worry about them interacting.

Thanks and best regards,

I seem to remember a thread that said PC could be applied over just about anything, but can't find that thread.

Why not just spray a test with your rattle can in the way that you want to do your guitar, let it dry/cure and then try a few coats of PC and see what the result is?

when we tried it it went on ok put peeled off as soon as you ran your thumb along the finish - just didnt adhere well

re were refinishing a guitar we had previously sprayed with acrylic lacquer with a few fresh coats of RPC

that wasnt spray can lacquer - but it was definately acrylic, always test on scrap
