This product is not for DIYers, very painful to apply. I thought I was using Playdoo.

This product "drys" to the consitency of dry toothpaste or cake icing - in no way does it harden up like dry wall mud. Can be easily indented, scraped, and peeled up with a fingernail without hardly trying after many hours of drying. The label mentions "for repairs deeper than 1/4" . . . . no way would I use this for deeper repairs other than a small hairline in an indoor paint finish that i'd be painting over in a non-traffic area. I purchased a couple 8 oz batches and tried to find a use for this after purchase and test it's performance on a home project, but was un-impressed and will stick with traditional drywall mud which drys hard - something I can have confidence in placing any paint over it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cmill Yeah. ... this is some good stuff
I hade a few holes in my walls from doors that struck them when opening. Went on pink, and dried white just likeit says. Dries fast, and very easy to sand. Well worth the price and goes a long way. I would definitely recommend this product!

Drydex is terrific. Our daughter, a first-time DIYer, used this stuff in combination with mesh tape extensively in a room that frankly probably could have used a completely new drywall job. A contractor who had been doing another job for us in the same room looked around and asked, "Um..who's doing this for you?" When I told him our daughter, he replied, "She does a better job than we do." The wall after her repair with Drydex and subsequent painting looks like a brand-new drywall job. The color indicator is a great plus. Drydex takes sanding and paint beautifully. We LOVE this stuff.

Nothing drys faster for small cracks and nail holes. Sands and takes primer well. I use this as a final (third coat) when mudding wall board.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KNewton Easy to use, even for first timers!
We needed to touch up some old horse hair plaster walls in our home and this has done the trick perfectly! We are newbies to all things home improvement so after getting our technique down this has been a dream come true!

No mixing, no muss and no fuss. Apply as you would a mixed spackling paste and allow to dry. The color dry indicator (pink to white) is an excellent tool for those jobs you need to get done quickly. When the paste turns from pink to white, it is dry and you can sand and reapply or paint. It is all I use for remodeling and repairing sheet rock in my home.

This is my first time Spacking and it made my first experience a breeze. I love how you know when it's dried when it turns from pink to white. I would recommend this product to anyone who is new to spackling.
