They're ideal for solidbody guitar finishes; you can experiment with pigment combinations to produce infinite colors.

4-ounce bottles. Sold individually or SAVE when you buy the set of all seven colors.

ColorTone® Pigments mix with clear filler, clear sealer, and clear finishes to create opaque custom products. Two or more colors can be combined to make a variety of shades. After spraying the color coats, spray clear lacquer topcoats for depth and high gloss. These pigments are not for use with alcohol base, waterbase, or varnish finishes.

Pretty nice

This is nice pigment. Be advised that it takes a while to get ratios right for different colors. Some of them, a little goes a long ways, some you need to use a lot. Pigmented paint or nitro won't flow as smoothly through spray equipment so take extra care when cleaning.

Fixing Dried out bottles

I love these pigments and have used them for years. One problem however is that they tend to dry out in the bottle after 9 months or so making them hard or impossible to use. To indefinitely lengthen their shelf life re-liquify them with some Glycol Ether DPM. That's a solvent used to clean spray foam guns and not so surprisingly used in the paint and dye industry as a suspension. It's exactly what makes this type of Colortone pigment liquid.

good stuff

helpful. there are other pigments out there but this is a nice addition to any guitar finish person's tools. the red, black and yellow work well to give that slightly opaque color like old fender's have.

Smaller sizes?

Love the ColorTone pigment products! A little goes a long way but, since I'm a small shop, that can be a 2-sided coin... The shelf-life on the product is about a year at best, so I have to replace the 4oz. bottles before they're used-up. I'd like to see them also available in either 1 or 2oz bottles to accommodate the more infrequent user.

Hard to Mix

I found the black pigment a bit difficult to properly mix to a uniform consistency just by stirring. Works fine once mixed but will be very streaky otherwise.

went on easy

Used this with some nitro in an air brush to do a skull on my tele build. Went well considering it was my first paint job.

I wouldn't have believed it

I had some lacquer dyes already- but I didn't have white- just a few drops and you can get any hue- sharp! Just the white alone is a big plus to shooting projects- I think it will last me for years. Great product.

Great lacquer tint.

This product is great for tinting lacquer. It mixes very well, and applies smoothly.

Lacquer pigment

Good Stuff. I enjoy having the freedom of being able to mix my own custom colors.
