  • 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 with clean rags, stroking with the grain.
  • Difficult places can be wiped with a round brush.
  • While working with 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 important 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.
