The Secret to Sanding Hard to Reach Places. You'll never use Sandpaper again!

All you have to do is brush it on and it scratches up the surface so you can repaint and the paint will adhere. And not peel off.

For you folks who buy old furniture then paint it…..you really must try this stuff….only a couple of bucks for a 16 oz. can. You mix it (powder) with water to the consistency that you need for your repair. I made mine a little thicker, stuck a few brads, with heads on them, in to the leg (for grip), then molded the leg. I use it instead of wood putty for smaller jobs. It sands beautifully and lasts forever, as you only mix what you need for each job.
