Can I mix these two, if so how do I know what ratios are possible?

It depends on what the compositions are. Oil and water don’t mix so I’d start there. If they’re compatible, mix some samples in varying ratios and test on scrap wood.

Try it on something that is not critical, like a scrap.

It would appear you can mix them, the Old Masters website says the grain filler can be mixed with oil based stain, and the Minwax site says that stain is oil based (or at least it’s solvent clean up). I’ve done this (mixed stain and filler) but I used PorOpac filler and GF gel stain, works great and really popped the rays on some QSWO I was finishing. My stain was darker than the dye I applied, so the pores really stood out.

Interesting topic. I’ve always been hesitant to not do one step at a time, but good to know you can combine these steps.

Have your say...
