Hi justintime2001.
Here's what I used:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/500ML-Cellulose-Sanding-Sealer-Cle...
I actually got the 1litre size and have used about half of it so 500ml may be sufficient for you.

I make my own sanding sealer with clear dope and talc or micro ballons.I thin the dope up to 50% and vary the fillers according to the grain etc i wish to seal.You can ajust the proportions to suit yourself. The greater the fillers to dope the easier to sand . I usually finish with an 800 grit. Experiment to find what suits you best.Discount store talc will do. Cheapest you can find .Baby talc is often the cheapest. Regards John
