Refinishing your kitchen cabinets or upcycling furniture? Get a smooth, glass-like finish with this professional method: de-gloss, sand, apply 2-3 coats of Aqua Coat Clear Grain Filler, sand lightly, then follow with primer and paint. People who used our grain filler when refinishing their cabinets love it:

"Great for smoothing out cabinets"

"Easy product to use. Easy cleanup."

"Easy to use, no offensive odor, and does its job by filling in the grain."

"...tired cabinets needed some paint but I didn't want to see the grain when I was done. Aqua Coat filled in the grain lines which made the cabinets look new rather than old painted over cabinets when I was finished."

Clear Wood Grain Filler Directions For Use

Surface Preparation: Surface must be clean and dry (free from all dirt, oil, wax and polish) before using the Aqua Coat Clear Wood Grain Filler. Sand surface thoroughly. Remove all dust with a vacuum, forced air or damp cloth (water).

Directions For Use: Aqua Coat Clear Wood Grain Filler should be applied after the piece is stained, and/or a seal coat (Aqua Coat “X-119” Sanding Sealer) has been applied.

  • Stain and seal coat must be dry and lightly sanded with 220-grit or finer sandpaper.
  • Grain Filler can be tinted with water-soluble colorants or dyes.
  • If no stain or seal coat is used, you may apply Clear Grain Filler to the raw wood.
  • Grain Filler may be applied with a soft cloth, using a circular motion, much like applying a paste wax. Or work Grain Filler generously into open wood grain pores with a small squeegee or flexible putty knife.
  • Inspect to see if the grain is completely filled, then scrape or squeegee to remove excess.
  • Let dry 30-45 minutes, then lightly sand with 320 grit paper.
  • If grain is not completely filled, repeat the application process.
  • 2-3 coats of Grain Filler are recommended.
  • Allow over­night dry time and lightly sand before applying top coats.
