Is there any way to polish a satin finish to give it a glossier look?
A true satin finish has an additive in the clear coat that reflects lightwaves differently. They get buffed & polished just like gloss finish, but the additive gives it that flat look. In short, no. You can problay attempt to buff it out though, it may make it a little bit more glossier.
yea, you'd have to take and paint it over with some clear gloss, make sure you prep it good though..
Sorry for hijacking your thread but how do you clean a satin finished guitar. I have one and there are some spots on it. Can i use a regular guitar gloss like ghs guitar gloss to remove the spots? I don't want it to shine i just want to remove the spots. The spots are from sweat. After i play my guitar i wipe it down but the spots still remain.
yea, regular polish will work. but yea it might get a little more glossy, maby get just a guitar cleaner. i know they make it... try musicians friend..
there are a few non guitar companies who make satin polishes (for the cleaner guy)
