covering wood grain


I have removed several layers of paint from my kit kitchen cabinets. I sanded them, put 2 layers of Kill on them and 2 layers of paint. The wood grain continues to show through. Is there anyway to cover the grain so it looks smooth?

From your description they sound like oak cabinets. There really isn't a way short of skimming the surface with a filler like Sheetrock mud or

Or spackle, to totally hide the grain. Extra coats of pain will help. That's just the nature of oak.

FPE brushing putty will fill in and smooth the grain.Two coats sand after each coat,prime with oil primer then two coats of paint. http://www.finepaintsofeurope.com/st...p?idproduct=14

Melamine paint is thick enough a couple coats should fill in well sanded grain. It is not exactly fun to apply and while hard, it is prone to chipping. I don't think you can get it in but a fairly high gloss sheen either.
