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.

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 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 container.
  2. Put container into a saucepan of hot water to melt the wax.
  3. Apply 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 escess 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.

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.

A note from us...

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.

Really good stuff by Clive Whitton

Took about 2 minutes to fill a couple of really deep scratches on the head of my bed (not caused by anything or anyone interesting, just sloppy movers unfortunately). Anyway, it worked perfectly, has a dull appearance when first applied but easily polishes up to nice finish.

Easy to use after a little practice & looks effective by L Chandler

After a little trial & error we decided the easiest method to melt the wax was with a hairdryer. It was very effective in filling the gaps in our maple wood floor & we are pleased with the result. Much cheaper tha the quote we had from local carpenters!,

Hello Patrycja,

Its disappointing to hear that you did not get on with the Filler sticks. Colours in the wood finishing industry can be difficult for there are so many varients including the camera that takes the photos, the computer screen resolution that each individual views and the effect that the wood that you apply it to.

Our Colour tabs are there as a guide only and we always recommend test areas.

The good thing about these wax filler sticks is that they can be mixed to create alternate colours and tones. If you would like any help or advise with how to do this please feel free to give us a call to discuss further on 0800 7818 123.

Kind regards Wood Finishes Direct.

Did the job by Beverley Kuc

I used this on the back of a violin to fix a scrape from my shoulder rest. It is visible, as the colour were hard to match, but I think the wood is protected from further damage, which was the point.

Covers scratches somewhat by Beverley Kuc

Although I can still see the scratches on my chair, they are now less distinct. It works better on larger scratches, as the wax is thick and does not get into tiny scratches.

Have used filler sticks before and were a little harder than previous experience which is a bonus by Leslie Bishop

Although a little harder than other sticks, warm on a saucer over a cup of hot water to make them more malleable. When cooled they are a better finish than other softer sticks.

Just the job by Nigel Dyer

These proved to be perfect for filling woodworm holes after suitable treatment. It took me a while to work out that the best technique is to cut the stick into thin sticks and then melt the end with a soldering iron so that the wax runs into the hole and solidifies. Excess can then be scraped off with a knife.
