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).

Comments about CrystaLac Wood Grain Filler:
There are no directions on the container, but a quick google search takes you to their site with a pdf for directions of use.Glob it on the surface, spread it around evenly and quickly. Use a scraper (old credit card, etc.) to scrape off as much as possible 45 degrees or perpendicular to grain. Dries to touch in 15min, dries fully (if proper amount is removed) in about 30m-45m. Sand lightly and reapply as needed. Took me 4 coats to fill the deep grain of padauk. I found it sand easily, unlike some reviews. I guess they left way too much on the surface.If you have mixed woods like my project, and any of them are oily woods, the color may bleed a little into the product. My goop turn a slight pickish as I was applying it but had no issues with it turning my maple pink. Just saying as a heads up! Clean up your oily woods best you can before applying. Had no grain-raising issues.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer
I make veneer table tops alot. ALWAYS use this product after stain and 2-3 spray coats lacquer. 320 sand, apply by tablespoon and move around with a small rubber squegie. Drag, level and let it dry. 3-4 light coats, then 4-5 coats finish.Power buff to new car gloss and total filled grain.
Takes a couple of coats, hard to sand.
Used it to fill grain on some bloodwood. I had to use too many coats of waterlox to get get a smooth surface and it was making my Bloodwood too dark.This filler worked with 2 coats but man very hard to sand off the excess thin or thick.
Does the job

this works great.... it's very runny, but I let it set for a couple of hours and then removed excess with a plastic knife. Dries faster than I thought and sands easily.
