Q: Do I need to match the filler to the color of the wood if I plan to stain the wood?
A: GoodFilla is designed to accept stain similarly to wood. However, the stain needs to be darker than the filler. If you are using a light stain, match the filler to the color of the wood.
Q: How do I make a custom color with the base/neutral?
A: A liquid or powdered universal tint or dye is ideal. You can also use paints, food dyes, or stains to tint the filler to your desired color. Results will vary depending on the pigment load. Always test by applying the final finish over the dried filler.
Q: Can you use the filler outside?
A: Yes. Mix with a water-based weather-proof glue. For extra protection, be sure the area is coated/sealed with a clear coat.
Q: Can I mix wood flour into the filler?
A: Yes. Test the results and color by applying finish to the dry, sanded filler.
