Nitrocellulose lacquer CANDY TANGERINE for guitar paint and all you need to learn how to paint a guitar



Vintage Inspiration

Based on original Fender and Gibson colors.

To develop our colors we have relied on original samples from the 50s and 60s. After a lot of work and exhaustive study by our laboratory and technical department, colors have been achieved that faithfully recreate the tones of vintage Fender and Gibson guitars. During those years until now, it should be borne in mind that the colors of vintage guitars have varied greatly over the years due to the aging of nitrocellulose 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.

So that the painting equipment is not an impediment to painting your guitar, at Nitorlack we have developed all our colors in Spray format.

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 for a guitar with a medium wood pore, for an electric guitar neck: 2 finishing spray (gloss or matte), for an electric guitar body: 1 background spray and 3 finishing spray (gloss or matte). ), classical or acoustic: 1 background spray and 4 or 5 finishing spray (gloss or matte) and Ukulele: 2 finishing spray. (gloss or matte). If you want to apply any color, between the background and the finish you should add 1 or 2 spray of the desired color. Spray applicationtipsShake vigorously for 2 to 5 minutes before applying. It is recommended to apply the spray in thin layers and with an ambient humidity that is 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.

Professional finish.

If you want to get a perfect finish on your guitar and you have a painting equipment (gun and compressor) the best choice is canned products, you have a higher performance for a lower price and with a painting equipment the end 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 Retardto 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 1.5and the compressor pressure is about 2.5 to 3 bars.

With the purchase of a 500 ml can of color it is always attached to a 250 ml bottle of catalyst 190046. The mixing ratio of the product is 2 parts of color to 1 of hardener (2: 1). As with canned nitrocellulose, the viscosity can be adjusted with either of the two solvents we offer. Once the mixture is made, it has a life time of 2 hours to be able to apply it.
