ColorTone Waterbase Grain Filler

About This Item

Our first choice for filling the pores of open-grain woods. Compatible with all stains and finishes.

The first step to a flawless professional finish!
ColorTone Waterbase Grain Filler is our first choice for filling and leveling the pores of open-grain woods, such as rosewood, ash, koa and mahogany, before spraying a finish. No shrinking or cracking; it dries faster than other types of fillers, and sands easily. Supplied in 4-ounce jars, ready to mix with water.

"It's grain filler, wood putty, crack filler, hole-filler and mistake-patcher, all rolled into one product. The colors are natural and realistic."
—Dan Erlewine

  • Waterbase, non-toxic, solvent-free and nonflammable
  • Compatible with all finishes, including nitrocellulose and waterbase lacquers
  • Compatible with most stains, waterbase pigments, sealers and topcoats
  • Traditional guitar colors
  • Neutral is a light base filler for custom tinting
  • Easy to apply, dries fast and sands easily
  • Fills wood pores without sinking, shrinking or cracking
ColorTone Grain Filler is supplied in paste form, ready to mix with water (10-15 percent water works well for us) and brush on the wood. Let it dry, sand the surface level, and clean with a damp cloth. It's that easy, and you're ready to spray a smooth, blemish-free professional finish. No shelf-life problems: if the filler dries hard in your cup, simply add more water.

Why use grain filler? Unfinished rosewood, mahogany, koa and ash have porous "open-grained" surfaces. Filling and leveling the pores leaves the surface smooth for applying uniform finish coats. Using a contrasting filler color can often enhance the grain as well.

Very Disappointing

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Have tried to use this product three times on Mahogany projects with worthless results all three times. I will say it could have been user error - I may have over sanded, but the 2nd & 3rd time I was super diligent not to do this. Eventually leveled the finish with 15 coats of nitro sanding after the 5th & 10th coats.
First bad experience with a Stew Mac product. Not up to the usual high standards.

Do not waste your $$$$$. This product makes a nice fill until it contacts any kind of moisture. There's nothing like spraying finish over your project and watching your fill job disappear!!!

Not good

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I had a bad experience with this product, it didn't stain the same color as the original wood, and pretty much ruined my guitar's finish. The veneer is too thin to sand and start over, so I'm out of luck. I had it looking good until I wet sanded it and the filler turned a lighter shade, which I don't understand because it has lacquer over it and I didn't sand through it, but that's what happened.
