Wood grain filler not what I thought.
We'll I've made quite a mess. I'm using Old Masters Wood Grain Filler on a freshly-sanded jazz body I've stripped of poly, and I think I misunderstood the part about "wiping off the excess." I slathered it on and wiped off big drips and thick parts, but figured the rest would dry hard and easily sandable. I left the body rather coated in the stuff, figuring it would also function as a chip and ding and scrape filler. After five days of drying, I started sanding tonight.
What I have is a gunked-up sander doing nothing but spreading around rolled-up silly putty.
I think I was supposed to REALLY wipe off the excess when it was wet to point of not leaving much of a visible layer. My questions are this: is it ever really going to dry to a hard sandable substance? Should I wait it out and sand or shoul I scrape it off? It's just all still peanut buttery after five days of "drying." Does it ever dry hard? Thanks in advance.
