Similarly one may ask, do you use wood filler before or after staining?
Apply Wood Filler Before Sanding the Entire Project With a uniform texture, the applied stain will absorb in a more uniform fashion and minimize color differences. It is important to thoroughly wipe away sanding dust before staining.
Also Know, what kind of wood filler can you stain? Stainable Wood Filler is designed to fill nail holes, cracks, small gouges and other defects in unfinished wood. It does not come pre-colored. It readily accepts any Minwax® stain and, once stained, will match the surrounding wood.
In respect to this, can you mix stain into wood filler?
Tip 3: Choose High Quality Stain Both of them are great to mix with wood filler. Water-based stains are usually easier to work with, but they don't have the natural look of the oil stain, whereas if you mix an oil-based stain with the wood filler, the look will be beautiful and natural, but be very messy to work with.
What is the difference between wood putty and wood filler?
Wood filler differs from wood putty in that the filler usually consists of sawdust or wood fibers suspended in a binder, while putty is usually a plastic such as epoxy, fiberglass or polyurethane. Moreover, unlike filler, putty doesn't harden. Wood filler isn't weatherproof and won't last outdoors.
