Excellent product. Makes a great product even better

This is my first time using Crystalac, so I’ve been experimenting with it. With the help of the great support from the people Crystalac, they suggested I try the reducer to give me a bit more time to reduce brush strokes. Fantastic. It worked beautifully and now I’m ready to proceed to the actual instrument, an acoustic guitar finished with turquoise trim.


Love, love, love Crystalac tumbler products!!


Works great
