ColorTone Polishing Compounds

About This Item

The final step for a beautiful finish. Available in shop-size containers, or in 4-ounce bottles for smaller jobs.

A customer described it best: ColorTone® polishing compounds make the magic happen! Used by hand with a soft cloth or with foam rotary polishing pads, they transform a fine-sanded new finish into a dazzling high-gloss surface you can be proud of. ColorTone compounds remove fine sanding scratches on instrument finishes and plastic pickguards, with no silicone residue to hamper future refinishing.

If you're final-sanding a new finish with 600 to 800-grit papers, begin the polishing sequence with Coarse compound. If final sanding is done with 1200-grit, start with Medium compound. Fine compound follows Medium when a super-high gloss is desired.

Swirl Remover applied with a foam rotary pad removes buffing marks and extremely fine sanding scratches on fresh finishes. It can also be used by hand to bring out a higher lustre on new or aged finishes.

Color Tone Polishing Compound

Verified Buyer


First of all, I polish solely by hand using old tee shirt materials. I polished out a recent build using all four grades on clear Color Tone lacquer and it buffed out nicely, unfortunately I do not have any photos. Great product and it cleans up esier than automotive type rubbing and polishing compoiunds.

Fantastic Finishes are Within Reach!

I used the Medium, Fine, and Swirl remover on a recent guitar build. I used StewMac spray lacquer and polishing pads with these compounds. I'm absolutely thrilled with the results! I got a fantastic shine after the Medium compound, and by the time I worked through to the Swirl Remover I had a factory looking finish. Thanks StewMac for putting tools like this in reach!

I bought this as the final stage of polishing out a refinishing project done with clear gloss, oil-based poly (minwax aerosol). I applied it by hand after wet sanding and one stage of polishing with an automotive compound and the results were excellent! A shiny mirror gloss.

Polishing poly finish

By

Verified Buyer


I’ve been working on my first build project, learning as I go and making all the first time mistakes and when I finally got to the polishing phase I’ve been extremely pleased with the ease of use and the over-all results with the Stew-Mac compounds. I am very happy with the way the compounds have brought out the gloss in the finish.

This scratch remover improved what I thought was a good finish. I noticed a few light sanding scratchs which were not noticable until going over them with " scratch remover".

POLISHING COMPONDS

By

Verified Buyer


These are very good products. I've used them on 3 guitars so far and have been quite pleased with the results.
The only negative is if you don't have an absolutely flat finish, the white will contrast in any crevice against a dark wood.
I HAVE NO INTENTION OF USING ANY OTHER PRODUCT IN FUTURE INSTRUMENTS
