Nitrocellulose lacquer LAKE PLACID BLUE for guitar paint and all you need to learn how to paint a guitar



Vintage-inspired guitar colors

Nitrocellulose Lake Placid Blue. Based on original Fender and Gibson colors. To develop our colors for guitars we have been based on original samples from the 50s and 60s. After a great work and exhaustive study on the part of our laboratory and technical department, we have obtained some colors for guitars that faithfully recreate the tones of vintage Fender and Gibson guitars to paint electric guitar. During those years until today, it should be borne in mind that the colors of vintage guitars have varied greatly over the years due to the aging of the nitrocellulose lacquer and changes in the colors of the brands. Therefore two guitars finished in 1960 with fender card colors today can be totally different between them or with respect to a more current guitar.

Lake Placid Blue Nitrocellulose Lacquer Spray

Paint your guitar easily with our spray. So that the painting equipment is not an impediment to painting your guitar, at Nitorlack we have developed all our guitar colors in nitrocellulose spray format. You can achieve a professional finish with our entire range of products, from backgrounds and the entire range of colors, to gloss and matte nitrocellulose lacquer. How much product do I need to buy guitar paint spray? It will depend a lot on the type of wood and the amount of product that is applied for each coat and the desired finish, mirror effect or “open pore”. But in general to paint a guitar with a medium wood pore, for an electric guitar neck: 2 nitrocellulose finishing spray (gloss or matte), for an electric guitar body: 1 nitrocellulose background spray and 3 nitrocellulose finishing spray (gloss or matte), classical or acoustic: 1 nitrocellulose background spray and 4 or 5 nitrocellulose finishing spray (gloss or matte) and Ukulele: 2 nitrocellulose finishing spray. (gloss or matte). If you want to apply a color, between a nitrocellulose base and a nitrocellulose finish, you should add 1 or 2 spray of the desired guitar color. Spray application tips Shake vigorously for 2 to 5 minutes before applying. It is recommended to apply the spray in thin layers and with an ambient humidity as low as possible. Apply with a uniform movement and with a distance of approximately 20 cm. It is important to apply a primer and sand with 400 before applying the spray to achieve a uniform surface before coloring or finishing. Sand between coats and allow to dry for 12 to 24 hours between coats. Apply in ventilated areas. You can buy guitar sandpaper in our store.

Lake Placid Blue nitrocellulose paint in can

Professional finish. If you want to paint your guitar a perfect finish and you have a painting equipment (spray gun and compressor) the best choice is nitrocellulose varnish in a can, you have a higher performance for a lower price and with a painting equipment the final result will be professional with less effort. It is recommended to dilute the product with solvent to adjust the viscosity and for the application to be perfect, we have two types of solvents. The usual solvent used is Solvent Medium, but for more extreme humidity and temperature environmental conditions we can use Solvent Retard to avoid boiling and blurring in the finish. The optimal application conditions are between 15 and 25 ºC of temperature and 50 to 70% of humidity. The percentage of dilution will depend on the painting equipment and its configuration, but it is recommended between 10 to 20% solvent. The most common gun peak is 1.3 to 1.5 and the compressor pressure is about 2.5 to 3 bars.

Metallic polyurethane primer.

Improved formula for our metallic polyurethane colors. One-component acrylic primer. It allows to apply the color in a much more even way, giving a spectacular metallic appearance. It is important to finish the plating process with a clear polyurethane or nitrocellulose finish to protect the plating and add depth.

    Très bonne peinture et très belle couleur, facile à passer même au spalter. Les deux seuls points négatif sont déjà la taille, pourquoi ne pas proposer moitié moins ? Cela éviterai le gaspillage surtout si ce n’est pour l’utiliser sûr qu’une ou deux gratte et cela réduirait également le prix. Ensuite, c’est le prix, pour une peinture mono-composant ça fait quand même un peu chère surtout quand on sait que le bi-composant est au même prix et que le durcisseur coute dans les 10€. Donc, s’il n’y a pas de durcisseur, pourquoi payer le même prix qu’une peinture bi-composante vendu sur le site ? Sinon la peinture est vraiment belle et n’a rien à voir avec les peintures qu’on peut trouver dans le commerce et destiné pour le bois !
