In Response To: LACQUER: How to match old and new lacquer (Brian E)

We add a little stain to our lacquer from an ngr stain or from japan colors, also blending powders will do. A good paint or hardware store will have lacquer toners, with a couple of these cans of spray one may take a bit of the colored ingredient from the can to mix a matching color and using an artist brush and lacquer thinner, drop-in the toner and sand flush(harder this way). Or lightly dust and sand the toner onto the finish and with some steel wool and 600 grit wet/dry paper and paint thinner until you have good blend. Next coat and polish the repair with clear top coat.
