If your friction polish is shellac/dna based you can use regular shellac on top to fill the grain. The friction polish I use is so thin it would take forever to fill the grain with it alone.
You may want to hand sand (or palm sander) the white section with 220 to get rid of the muddy look.
You can apply regular strength shellac and use the DNA and 0000 in a jar lid to fill the pores. You want it wet enough to spread (maybe like mayo) but not dry. With the 0000 just damp you are basically remove the excess and it will not leave lap marks. When it drys in a few minutes then start with your friction polish after first lightly sanding with 400 or burnishing with 0000.
