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.

4-ounce (118ml) container.

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.

Works but not better than wood putty

By

Verified Buyer


I usually use joint compound or wood putty to fill grain, but I thought I'd give this a shot. It's fine, but not better. The only complaint I have is the directions: it says to add "10 - 15% water." I'd prefer a more specific direction, like 2 oz. water for every 5 oz of filler or whatever.

Aside from the extra step of sanding it off I had no problems with it. I like the old stuff I have always used too.

Lumpy 'N  Bumpy 'N  Dry.....Oh My !

By

Verified Buyer


Adding the suggested "10-15% warm water" to your Waterbase Grain Filler yielded a lumpy-dry substance that could not adhere to the properly prepared Mahogany wood. I just increased the amount of warm water to about 20% and it worked perfectly. ...just sayin'.

Well, that's all I've got.

ThankYouTooMuch !

Amazing!

Verified Buyer


I've used other products in the past but this stuff is amazing. I used the Ebony to pore fill the rosewood sides and back on a new build to highlight the grain with beautiful results. Sands incredibly easy and filled in one coat.

Good grain filler

By

Verified Buyer


Easy to use and seems to be very good. It was my first attempt at an ash body guitar. I'm not a pro so I'm sure this stuff is great if you know how to use it. I'm satisfied that it's better at grain filling than I am. I would use it again.
