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, filling nail holes and smaller cracks and splits.
Each pack contains 2 wax filler sticks, measuring approximately 6cm x 2.5cm x 1.5cm.
Ensure that areas to be filled with Morrells Wax Filler Sticks are clean, dry and free from dust, dirt and any other surface contaminants. 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 test area before starting any project to assess performance and end result. 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.
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.
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 Morrells Wax Filler Sticks have dried, an appropriate wood stain, such as Morrells Light Fast Wood Stain, a Morrells wood lacquer or other suitable lacquer or varnish can then be applied.
If more holes, crack or splits appear over time, simply apply more wax following the Preparation and Application instructions above.
