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.

Trust these products, great results

For years I used automotive compounds and polishes for guitars with OK results. After watching Dan Erliwine demo the foam polishing pad and the various compounds I decided to order the 4 bottle set and foam pad. By far the results were obvious to achieving a gloss swirl free finish. Wash the foam pad after use, let dry and put in a zip lock bag.

Color Tone Polishing Compound

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.

Did a good job !

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".
