Homestead Guitar Touch Up Kit


 


Homestead Touch Up/Color Replacement Kits

 

This is the kit that Ian Davlin and I developed and he demonstrates when teaching students in his classes. The 12 colors were selected by Ian and the kit and dispensers and packaging were developed for him by Jeff.

This kit is designed to match just about any color replacement and you can easily carry the colors in a handy plastic container. The eye-dropper type bottles are designed so that you can dispense very small amounts. Its a real time-saver and avoids having to hunt down that elusive color in the middle of a touch up. We recommend the colors be mixed with de-waxed shellac but you can also use solvent or water-based lacquer. Do not mix with oil-based finishes. Replacement Mixol colors are available on our eBay store here. 

Replacement Dye colors are available in 2 oz sizes here.

Chroma-Buster/Flatting Agent

This is the product suggested by Ian Davlin for decreasing the vibrancy/intensity of dyes, by decreasing the chroma. Essentially a special type of flatting agent with other ingredients. Used in small amounts, but you’ll have to practice a bit. This product will also flatten a clear shellac finish when touching up old finishes. We recommend this product be mixed only with shellac. Flammable so Ground Shipping Only. Please be patient as ground service can be slow these days.
