Cracking Lacquer ???

Postby Robert Freemond » Fri Apr 21, 2017 2:13 am

Just finished my 1st Lacquer job after numerous KTM's (with mixed results). It was on a rework of an older practice guitar so I wasn't that worried if it didn't pan out. I was so pleased at how it went on that I thought this might be my new approach. It's been curing for about 3 weeks now & the finish is starting to crack - mostly around the bridge & sound hole.
I used Mohawk Per Catalyzed gloss, multi coats at one hour intervals. with a base of shellack.
Any clues as to what I might have done wrong.
