acceler8 Posted April 22, 2009 Report Share Posted April 22, 2009 ok, so I've had my guitar built and ready to paint for ages and haven't got around to it yet. I've been trying to track down what supplies I need, what I can buy in my area (Vancouver, Canada) and here's what I've come up with: Colour Tone Water based filler (from stew mac) Colour Tone Concentrated Liquid Stain (Stew Mac) Watco glossy Lacquer, apparently this stuff is nitro and it comes in a spray can, and I can but it at Home Hardware around here. here's the link: http://www.homehardware.ca/Products/index/...atco_gloss_319g The reason Im going with the watco, rather than a stew mac lacquer is because they cant ship aerosol stuff to canada. My plan is to Stain the guitar black and do a glossy lacquer over that. Now this is where I need some help. I've heard that you need to use sanding sealer somewhere in the process but I'm not sure what product to buy if I do. Can I just use the watco lacquer as a sanding sealer? The next thing I'm not sure about is what order to apply these finishes in. What I'm assuming is something like this: 1 Water based filler (mixed with liquid stain) 2 Sanding sealer (if I need it) 3 Watco glossy Lacquer 4 Polish Is this correct, or does the sanding sealer go on before the stain/ grain filler? Any tips and advice would be greatly appreciated! I've searched forums high and low and gotten a ton of info so far, but I just want to make sure if exactly what I'm planning is going to work out. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
