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.

As always from S-M a Fine Product

I bought this filler to take care of some gouges I (carelessly) made while building a guitar rim. Just as promised, it's easy to work with, thins to the consistency you need, and cleans up easily. [This last was very important, as I got some on a nice pair of pants -- water cleaned it up quickly.]

The only reason I gave it a four instead of a five is that I think the color (rosewood) is lighter than it should be. In the container, it's plenty dark, but it dried lighter than I wanted. Hopefully, sanding and rubbing in will let it blend nicely with the rosewood body.

Overall, I'm very pleased.

This is super. Fills grain, cracks, defects, and holes. Dries hard. Sands easily. The other product with a similar name is not worth using even if they paid you $20 to use it, but this product works very well. I will continue to buy and use this product as the need arises.
