2. Wood Preparation
- For open pore wood such as mahogany or ash, we strongly advised to use a grain filler in particular when using spray can to apply color and varnish. You can choose a colored grain filler that suits more your guitar paint project. The use of a clear sealer is less needed but we still advice ot for perfect and smooth results. It will be applied after grain filler before applying the translucent color.
- For close pore woods such as maple or bassewood, we suggest to use a clear sealer. More varnish coats instead will work as well
3. Coloring the Wood
One Nitro spray is required to paint the body in transparent:
- 1x spray of the translucent color of your choice is needed for the body
Note that you should have some paint left which you can use for the neck (headstock, etc.).
4. Varnishing Guitar Body & Neck
1 Liter of varnish is more than enough to get a good finish for both the neck and the guitar body: and ~600mL for the body.- ~600mL for the guitar body - ~400mL for the guitar neck Note that you can select matt or gloss finish. Using a brush along with sanding with different level of sanding paper will provide you excellent finish. Still you can use the rechargeable spray if you prefer for the last coats for instance to make sure to have a homogeneous and apply thin layer of varnish.
5. Polishing the Guitar Body & Neck (Optional)
To get a super high gloss, a mirror effect, a protective layer, we recommend the polishing set. Still you will get already a very good results without it but it enhance further the finish of your guitar.
