Better Seal Knots in Wood
Before Starting to Paint
Before painting over a knot in
wood, be sure to fill any cavities
with plastic wood or wood putty
and then apply a sealer to the
area to prevent the sap in the
knot from staining the new
coating.
This sealer may be a product
made especially for the purpose
or shellac. When you use shellac,
remember that you usually need
alcohol to “cut” or thin it. The
label on the can will let you
know the proportions to use.
