I decided as my first wood working project to make a wooden chandelier. I had everything planned. My finish schedule was going to be as follows
1- Sand to 220
2- BLO and cured for 7 days
3- Dewaxed Shellac as a sealer
4- Fill the pores with Crystalac.
5- top coat.
So I am in step 2 right now and have hit a road-block. I just found out that the Crystalac grain filler I ordered off of Amazon cannot be shipped to me. I tried to get my hands on Aqua Coat Grain Filler and even that is impossible to get where I live and wont be shipped. I went to Home depot and Lows and neither had any grain fillers. They have the wood fillers that’s good for filling up big holes but not ideal for pores.
So what do I do now that the boiled linseed has already cured. Should I shellac sealer on and then wet sand the surface? Should I wet sand first to fill the pores and then put my sealer on? If I wet sand it now, then do I have to wait for a few days again for the new coat of BLO to cure/dry before I put the shellac sealer on? Can I use Danish Oil over cured BLO to fill the pores? I have heard Watco Danish Oil is water based and I am afraid it may not work well over blo.
Sorry for the newbie question. Thank you very much for advance.
