APPLICATION OF PASTE GRAIN FILLER
- Mix the paste filler with a small amount of Mineral Spirits or Naptha.
- Continue to add more solvent until the material is of proper consistency for brushing.
- Wood with coarse pores will require a thicker filler than wood with small pores.
- Apply the filler with a fairly stiff brush.
- Brushing is done with the grain and can be finished by cross-brushing if desired.
- The whole idea is to pack the filler into the pores. Keep the filler in the can well mixed, as it has a tendency to settle.
- The filler will lose its wet appearance in about 5 minutes.
- Clean off the surplus filler by wiping across the grain.
- Finish wiping the clean rags, stroking with the grain.
- Difficult places can be wiped with a round brush.
- While working with the large projects, watch the place where you start brushing since this may flatten out and require wiping before the whole job is coated with filler.
- If the filler sets up too hard for easy wiping moisten the wiping rag with Naptha. Inspect the work.
- If the pores are not filled level, apply a second coat of slightly thinner filler immediately, wiping off in the same way.
- Paste Grain Filler should dry in a least 3 to 4 hours. It is of the greatest importance that the filler be completely dry before any other coating is applied.
- The dry filler should be sanded lightly with 180 Free Cut Paper, and wiped off with a rag moistened with Naptha.
