I am new to wood working. I am building my granddaughter a 'Modern' Dollhouse, which I would like to pass on down through the family. I am making it out of 12mm marine ply. A bit late I'm afraid to say 'bad choice'. I want the outside finish to be pretty slick and smooth. The ply has a very course grain that sanding has no effect on. I am planning to finish with an acrylic paint. (A dusky rose pink of course). I have tried, primer, auto primer, filler mate and Poly filler. All of which did not give me a smooth enough finish. Id say the auto primer worked best. (Still some grain showing through.) My questions are, has anyone used auto spray putty on wood? Does it adhere? Or would I be best to use dewaxed shellac with talc? This needs to be finished by mid January for her 5th birthday. At the rate I'm going it'll be for her 6th. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
