This is a fantastic starter set. We had to paint over the sellers' poor paint selections of mustard yellow, tomato red, and "downtown" brown when we bought our first house in April (if you get my drift). Prior to painting, we had to address the approximately 3.5 million items that the previous owners of the house had tacked or screwed into the walls. I chose to go with this kit because we are both in IT and complete newbies when it comes to this sort of thing (but DETERMINED to figure it out, DAGNABBIT). It was excellent! While we worked through the home mending flaws in the walls, the spackle/primer reminded me of whipped icing and remained soft despite the fact that we left the kit open and closed for approximately a week. In addition, we found a baseball-sized gaping hole close to the floor that was concealed behind an empty switch plate and that we were able to seal with the provided mesh. It caused us to hover nearby it while making "???" noises. There used to be a hole there, but you hardly even notice it today.I'm deducting one star for only one reason, but it's a huge one. the putty knife provided. It is just little larger than the priming tub. This would not be a significant concern if it weren't for the fact that the knife is little too large and does not fit into the lip of the tub, making it difficult to easily scrape product off of it when you are finished working for the day. Because the knife is just a tiny bit too large to fit into the tub or the corners, you can't easily pull the product out of them either. To get it out, we had no choice except to use our fingers.

quickly dries. Work quickly. Although it is chalky, it is not dried out as others have claimed. That is how it is supposed to be. It almost has the texture of light spongey fluffy foam. It most certainly isn't the mud I applied to attach the drywall. However, I don't believe it is intended to be. I'm brand new. My child tripped and drove her heel through the trim of the wall. Now everything is better.

I discovered a long time ago that a product's Harvey name denotes quality. I went through the steps of making a putty ring that I would use to seal a basin's drain sleeve. Excess putty is forced out when the sleeve is pulled down; it is very simple to peel off and place back in the container. There is no leakage near the sleeve as a result. You should also look into the extensive line of home repair items offered by Harvey.

We occasionally see tiny cracks or holes; the most recent was caused by a towel rack that was ripped out and left a medium-sized hole where the drywall anchor was. For small ones, I usually just use a patch kit, but this fabric was perfect for larger ones that needed strengthening. It is easily cut with scissors and then adheres to the wall. All that's needed is some straightforward spackling on top.Sand the area sufficiently beforehand to ensure that the fabric lays level; otherwise, you risk having a little elevated area. If your walls are textured or you sand your walls enough, you can conceal this.Kit: a 4-in-1 3M Patch Plus Primer that is effective for smaller holes in place ofDap 12328 DryDex Spackling Interior/Exterior, 1/2-Pint, Spackle (Color Changing)

We are full-time RV residents. Test Museum Putty and this one next to toasters, Ninja coffee makers, and computer speakers. Everything remained in place after a 3 1/2-hour journey. It's great not to have to store anything. I placed some additional objects behind the Clear Gel Quake Hold. Those things did move around 3/4", so I'll use the original Quake Hold in place of the Gel. I adore these two goods and strongly suggest them, especially to other RVers.

Can of 1 quart#


The Bondo plastic filler and this product both function similarly. I used to fix autobody as a teen, and the cream hardener is still used, but the hue is beige/tan to mimic wood. As stated by other reviewers, anticipate some settling in the can. The red hardener tube that came with my can of Bondo Wood Filler when combined with the beige/tan Bondo transformed it into a salmon color. The color of the hardener wasn't a concern for me because I planned to prime and paint over the repaired area, but you must use the white hardener if you don't want to affect the Bondo's color. Depending on the amount of hardener applied, the product dries swiftly and sands effortlessly. To give myself more time to mix and apply the product, I usually use less hardener. I would have to spend $1,600 to replace a four-casement bedroom window. I was able to fix the rotten wood and postpone needing to replace the window by using Bondo Wood Filler. for a few more years, hopefully. I have pictures of the window's before and after attached.

does precisely what is stated. This saves time and effort by eliminating the need to 1) apply spackel to the area that needs repairing, 2) wipe off excess, and (3) wait for it to dry, sand it down, and adjust as necessary. The most difficult element is avoiding mistakenly applying the product to areas of the wall that don't require it. However, this is not a problem because it is simple to wipe up. Other than the color contrast between the patch and the paint, you wouldn't be able to tell that the wall was fixed where there had previously been holes caused by a WiFi router and modem. Excellent value; simple to use.

I was aware from reading earlier reviews that the dispenser tube can separate or start to leak at the base. I double-checked that it was fully screwed on and pushed down, and I had no issues. It was a cream-colored foam. My goal of closing a gap close to a window was achieved. The foam did not disperse uniformly and occasionally stopped coming out, which was the only problem I encountered. Nothing serious.

Since I've been using it for over 30 years, this is the ONLY spackle I will ever purchase! Larger holes, such as those for doorknobs, should not be filled with fiberglass mesh tape or this product. It is intended to be used to patch up tiny cracks, nail pops, and holes left by hanging pictures. You won't need to sand at all if you follow this method! If you mix it a little before using it, it will adhere to your putty knife. However, after filling that tiny hole, you'll want to wipe the spackle off the wall around the hole to avoid filling in the texture. I appreciate Red Devil for continuing to operate their tiny US-based company.
