Morrells Wax Filler Sticks have been specifically formulated to repair small imperfections that may only become visible after the first coat of lacquer or varnish has been applied. However, they can also be used successfully prior to the first coat of lacquer or varnish being applied.

For multi patch repairs consider the Osmo Repair Kit which contains 6 miniature wax filler sticks of different colours and a battery operated wax melting tool.

Ensure that areas to be filled are clean, dry and free of any dust, dirt or other surface contaminates. If possible, roughen or scratch the inside of the area to be filled so that the wax has a better key to adhere to.

Always do a small test area before starting any project and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the pack at all times.

There are 2 main ways that wax filler sticks can be softened / melted so that they can be used to fill the damaged area. Before handling the filler stick, ensure that hands are clean and dry as wax sticks easily pick up any dirt on the hands and this may discolour the wax.

Method 1:

  1. Scrape off slithers of wax with a filler knife or other sharp edged object
  2. Push wax into hole or damaged area to be filled with a plastic scraper or card
  3. Warm with a hair dryer so that the wax softens and sinks into the repair area
  4. Scrape off any excess from the surface or the surrounding areas with a plastic scraper taking care not to damage the wood or finish around the repair area

Please Note: If heating the wax in situ of the repair with a hair dryer, take care to ensure that the hair dryer isn't set too hot or used too close to the surface that it damages, melts or burns the wood or the wood finish around the repair area.

Method 2:

  1. Using an old mug, bowl or other heat proof container, cut off the required amount of Wax Filler Stick with a filler knife, and place into a container
  2. Put the container into a saucepan of hot water to melt the wax
  3. Apply the melted wax to the repair area with plastic scraper taking care not to damage the wood or finish around the repair area

Whichever method you choose, ensure that excess amounts of wax are removed and the surface is left smooth and flat. 320 grit paper can be used for this process.

Once the wax has dried, an appropriate wood stain, lacquer or varnish can be applied.

If more holes, crack or splits appear over time, simply apply more wax following the Preparation and Application instructions.

Hard to choose correct shade and difficult to apply in small areas by Simon Jeffery

I scraped and heated this product but found it difficult to use in small enough amounts. I ended up buying Liberon crayons, which for someone of my abilities were easier to apply. They also came in three shades per pack so easier to match shades

A note from us...

Hello Mr Jeffery,

The wax filler sticks can be a little tricky to use but once you get a feel for it it can be an effective filler for fine scratches and dents. I am please you were able to complete your project in the end and if there is anything that I can do to help please do feel free to get in touch.

Kind Regards Samantha.

Fine for small jobs Seems to be compatible with Danish Oil Touch wood! by Steven Anderson

The sticks are pretty thin and short but work fine.Perhaps better for smaller jobs where 'using the stub of the pencil' won't get ridiculous too quickly.I'd personally prefer 1 larger block to 3(?) small sticks as I apply the stuff firmly and quickly cross-grain like an eraser then buff with the grain using a cloth on a flat block.

Excellent choice of colours and easy to use by Mr M Knight

The wax was easy to use and melt in order to soften so that it filled a damage to the veneer where a new oak door had to be cut. Very difficult to spot the repair.

I used this to fill small gaps on some laminate wardrobes which worked really well. As long as the sticks are warm it works in easily.

Hello Mr Hassan,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the filler sticks. They can be a little tricky to use at times if you are not used to working with the wax. Many people find it easier to melt with a lighter/candle and work the wax in with a credit card or something similar. If you have any questions or would like advice on an alternative filler to use please feel free to call in and speak to one of our friendly advisers. Our free phone number is 0800 7818 123.

Kind regards Sam.

Does what it says by Richard Clark

It fills in small dents and blemishes; it's not a grain filler and doesn't set out to be.
