“I'm doing some wood binding today, and I pulled out a few pieces of curly maple I've had for a while that I bought from you. It never ceases to amaze me how LMI, above all my other suppliers, just consistently gives me materials that never fail to surpass my expectations. No matter what any picture on your site looks like, whatever I get is always better. Really appreciate it. I know that you supply many other people far beyond my volume and talent, but I am definitely a customer for life!"
LMI Micro-bead Acrylic Paste Filler is an easy to use water cleanup, paste wood filler made up of microscopic glass beads in a matrix of water-soluble acrylic polymer. This filler is designed to be used with water-based finishes, but with proper cure can be used under Seagrave/Cardinal lacquers. We offer it in three base colors: natural (Maple), Mahogany (medium red/brown) and dark Walnut-Rosewood for the dark-colored woods. It may easily be further tinted using artist acrylic colors to duplicate any color needed.
Micro-bead will never shrink and is minimally absorbent of finishes and solvents. It is the safest, cleanest, and fastest filler on the market.
TO USE: Simply spread a small amount over the surface to be filled using a flexible spatula raked across the grain, pressing the material into the pores while scraping away the excess. When the pores are filled, set aside to dry (minimum time one hour, best overnight), then sand or scrape smooth. Seal wood with a wash coat of suitable sealer, then proceed with regular finishing routine.
