Excellent Results

I can only comment on the white pigment, the only one I've tried so far, which I used to do a Mary Kaye blonde finish on a swamp ash tele. I was very happy with the results & probably have enough pigment left to do 10+ MK finishes. I also bought a StewMac finishing video featuring Dan & Don which was very helpful & informative. Mk blondes are hard to photograph, especially with a cheap camera.

Works very well.

I've used the pigment in two ways:

I used a mixture of red and blue to create a maroon for a Strat refinish I was doing. I just mixed the pigments right into the lacquer. Colors mixed great and covered very well. A little goes a long way. As an aside, the red by itself is a "pinkish" red, so if you're looking to create a darker red, you will need something to mix in to darken it a bit.

I also used the white to "touch up" a problem in the binding on one of my builds. Binding was chipped, and I did some drop fills. The repair is not visible in the finished guitar.

Great colors

I love these pigments because they are so concentrated. A little goes a long way. I mix this into Seagrave Clear and never have a problem with coverage. Good stout brilliant colors.

Very Good

You don't have to use a whole lot of this stuff man. It is so concentrated that a little goes a long way.

Great stuff

I am very pleased with the length of drying time and the durability of this lacquer. It will definitely be dry enough in 7 days to do all your final finishing.

Color Tone products are quick and easy to use. I used a combination of Pigment,and Stain to make this red grain filler.

Paint the rainbow....

These pigments mix well and provide very uniform color. They blend very well with each other to make any color you want.

Excellent product.

These liquid pigments are the best I've used for coloring lacquer, and epoxy.
