A CLEAR wood
grain filler? I don’t know how they did it, but this new wood grain
filler really does dry virtually transparent. That means that every bit
of the wood’s color (stained or not) comes through brilliantly.
Filling the wood grain before applying the clear coats helps eliminate
those distracting little pock marks where the finish didn’t completely
fill the pores. Simply rub it in and trowel it off to remove the excess.
Paste left behind in the pores will level the surface so you can lay
down a silky smooth finish. You can tint it with just a dab of latex paint colorant
or universal tint (available from most paint stores). May be used with
waterborne or solvent-based topcoats. For best results, stain the wood
before applying CrystaLac Clear Wood Grain Filler. Paste wood grain filler
is a special blend of silica, clays, ground glass, and binder. CPF-2530 is only available as a quart.
Note: Wood grain filler is not designed to fill nail holes (use wood putty for that).

Performs as advertised
from Whitakers NC
Used on small veneer for keepsake box lids, 8"X12". Easy to apply and finish off, great feel and lustre. Lousy, almost non-existent, instructions. Product was thinner than I expected and took five coats to fill in the bubinga for the lid. This was my first experience with grain filler and I am still not sure whether I applied it correctly, reference my comment on the instructions. I was extremely impressed with the speed of delivery.
Takes a Little Getting Use To

I'm learning from it every day and am very pleased.

About Me Professional
Have only tested on Rosewoods, but it fills the pores slowly, so takes a number of applications to get the job done. However it dries fairly quickly and sands easily with 400 grit paper.

Product works great
from McCook NE
What I liked is that you can thin it with a little more water to rub it in a curcular pattern in small areas and when it gets like a paste it scrapes off easily with an old credit card. Sanding is then very easy and - yes - it is clear.
