This product is designed to fill the pores of open grain woods and helps to achieve a smooth finish. Woodgrain Filler is natural in color, but is best used when intermixed with a solvent-based wood stain to obtain desired colors.
Proper Surface Preparation
Proper surface preparation can be the most important step of any stain or finish project. Below are some helpful tips that will help you achieve a professional looking finish every time.
FILLING WOODGRAIN Some open-pore wood species or woods with large imperfections may require an additional step to prepare the surface for staining and finishing. Creating a smooth finish on these woods can be obtained by using Old Masters® Woodgrain Filler. Use on hardwoods, such as oak, ash and mahogany. Use as directed.
CONDITIONING Some woods like pine, fir, maple and poplar absorb stain unevenly creating a blotchy appearance. Old Masters® Wood Conditioner is a clear wood sealer which enables uniform stain application under oil or water based stains. Stain must be applied over Wood Conditioner within 2 hours. Ideal for use on soft woods which are being stained with or adjacent to hardwoods.
SANDING SEALERS Use a sandable basecoat or sealer prior to the application of varnishes or polyurethanes. Old Masters® Oil-based and Water-Based Sanding Sealers may be applied to all types of bare or stained woods. Using these products helps to promote a smooth, fine finish.
