The process for a color nitrocellulose lacquer finish is enough to test anyone's patience. All I can say it takes many coats, weeks for drying and much sanding. In the photo you can see the finish is building up nicely. The next step will be to sand flat using 400, 600 and 800 grit paper. Then a final coat will go on and the instrument will sit for three weeks. Then the buffing process will begin.
