ColorTone Black Aerosol Guitar Lacquer

About This Item

The easiest way to spray a professional finish!
Produces a beautiful traditional nitrocellulose lacquer finish, without elaborate spray equipment.

Black Gloss is a deep opaque black, exactly what you want for a solid black peghead. Top it off with Clear Lacquer for a deep, sleek gloss.

Sunburst Black is semi-opaque to transparent. This black has a warm hue, just right for the outer edge shading of a sunburst finish.

ColorTone® Aerosol Guitar Lacquer is formulated especially for musical instruments. Fast-drying and resistant to alcohol and water, it produces a hard, durable finish. Add clear coats of ColorTone Clear Lacquer for a deep, sleek gloss. Convenient 13-ounce spray can.

ColorTone Lacquer can be sprayed over smooth unfinished wood; over sanded basecoats of grain filler, and over ColorTone nitrocellulose Sanding Sealer. It's ideal for touch-up work, or for an entire instrument. The rotating-tip nozzle can spray a horizontal or vertical pattern.

Aerosol spraying is an economical way for the beginner to apply a finish. Aerosols produce a slightly rougher surface than spray guns however, and more sanding of the clear topcoats may be needed for a level finished surface.

Application Tips: We recommend spraying multiple thin coats, in a low humidity environment. Heavy-bodied Sanding Sealer (one coat equals two coats of lacquer) will seal the wood before the black coats are applied. Spray only enough black to hide the wood; most of the final finish thickness should be sprayed with clear gloss topcoats.

Use warm lacquer, not cold!
Pro shops spray heated lacquer because cold lacquer spatters, requiring extra sanding. You should warm up your aerosol lacquer too, simply soak them in a sink of warm tap water.

Our ColorTone Aerosol Finishing Kit is a great choice for the first-time instrument maker. It includes our easy-to-apply clear gloss aerosol finish with the best instruction book available!

Work Smart, Play Hard

I've done a lot of experimenting with FINISHING, and wasting a lot of time and money on what doesn't work. (I should do a YouTube video on what NOT to do). But in short: watch your teaching videos over, and over again; make EXTRA effort on your prep work; get a StewMac membership - and (until you get an airless rig set up) USE ONLY STEWMAC aerosol lacquers.

PROGRESS MAKES PERFECT...
... Do-overs make waste.

Excellent for home projects

I bought the lacquer set to do a T style project guitar with my daughter. Not only did the product work well but I cannot overstate the excellent customer support. The answered my questions every step of the way.
I am looking forward to taking on another project as a result.
Thanks StewMac.

dripping red cherry

Verified Buyer


i've got a lot of paint from you guys, all were great..except the red cherry. i started a red sunburst on my tele thin line and no matter how i held the can, it dripped constanly while i was shooting it. made a mess and i had to sand the whole front down and start over. bad can or nozzle i guess. still love all your products.

Deep Glossy Black - Make sure to get No Blush Plus if you have high humidity

By

Verified Buyer


I bought four cans for an acoustic dreadnought project from solo guitars. I also got the sanding sealer. I put the sanding sealer down first and probably only needed 3 cans. It is high gloss so be careful as it is drying. It will mark easy and you will get stuck with another round of sanding and waiting. I highly recommend the No Blush Plus if you have high humidity. That made all of the difference on my job.

Restored an Heirloom Dobro

I wish I could post 2 photos so you could see what I started with, but here's what the product did for this 1929 Dobro. It's not perfect, my first effort, but my Uncle that gave it to me was pleased. Thanks, StewMac, for a great product and tremendous service.

Used for headstock of LPJ over vinyl sealer. First time using aerosol cans and it went on just fine, no issues. I’d recommend these for their convenience.
