Mr. Surfacer is a range of surface primers that can be used as gap and seam fillers, as well as primers used by model makers and sculptors. There are three grades of Mr. Surfacer - 500, 1000 and 1200. Like sandpaper and emery cloth, the lower the number, the coarser the granules. The spray version of the popular Mr. Surfacer 1000 is ideal for larger areas.
Mr. Surfacer 1000 contains finer granules than Mr. Surfacer 500. They are both used in much the same way but, due to the finer granules after sanding with waterproof sand-paper, a perfectly corrected surface is possible. Available in bottle and spray.
Mr. Surfacer can be used for filling in bumps, scratches and pits. If the hole is large, use several layers and keep each application thin so it dries thoroughly. Mr. Surfacer is also great for filling in seams. Once it has dried, you can remove any excess with a swab dipped in rubbing alcohol (IPA). The alcohol will soften Mr. Surfacer and rubbing it will remove the excess. It can also easily be sanded.
Mr. Surfacer dries very quickly. Mr. Surfacer is lacquer-based so you should complete as much of your filling and finishing work as possible before applying paint, especially enamel. Lacquer-based products can cause severe cracking, splitting or bubbling on enamels. To avoid this, you can use Mr. Surfacer 1200 spray as a primer or another lacquer-based primer on areas you find may still need work.
