    Yep! Mike has been a pal and a great supporter of the fledgling Sully Guitars. He made the stencil I used for my Chicago flag Raven (and other stuff, too). Y'know when you meet those super talented guys that give back and help others just because that's how they are (Greg comes to mind, too)? That's Mike Learn.

    So yeah....get your TransTint on, sir!

    ok, so you use DBC500 as your base coats and also the color coats? then you go over it with ____ as the clear? just the two products?

    knowing that transtint works with the urethane stuff just made my day because I think I have around $200 worth of transtint! haha!

    DBC500 is untinted base coat. I only use that to mix with TransTint in order to make trans finishes. If it's an opaque finish, I don't mix that myself; I take the paint codes to the shop and have them mix it. I use Omni AU clear, which is made by PPG as well.

    I wouldn't shoot them on bare wood, no. I'd seal it first.
