Lacquer Pigments for Guitar Finishing


ViviTone™ Pigment Colorants are not “universal” colorants, meaning they are specific to a particular solvent or finish medium. Unlike Mixol and CalTint Universal Tints, they work only in specific mediums.  ViviTone Lacquer Colorants are only for solvent lacquer finishes and stains, or those products that thin with lacquer thinner or denatured alcohol.

ViviTone compare to some names you may recognize. In the past they were called 844 Huls, then Degussa. They are now made by Evonik and re-packaged by Homestead.
