Answer: 
It is not suitable for anything but wood due to the matching expansion rates. I recommend a metal filler.

Answer: 
For metal use, you might want to check out your local auto parts store and just use "bondo". It's the stuff they use to repair dents in cars... Goes on easy, dries rock solid and sands down very well.

Answer: 
Painter's Putty '53' takes approximately 24 hours to "skin over" (surface dry), depending on temperature, humidity and depth of fill, after which it can be painted (as per the package directions).

Answer: 
Drying time depends on the diameter and depth of the hole you fill... You will have to refer to the instructions on the side of the canister for drying time. I will say, the smaller the fill, the faster the drying time.
That being said though, I rebuilt a large portion of a splintered shelf support with this stuff and cosmetically looked like new when I was finished. Please note that this stuff never Read More

Answer: 
Because oil-based fillers such at Painter's Putty '53' do not dry completely hard, sanding is not recommended.

Rated 2.4 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TERRIBLE This was recommended to me by the HD Pro(no) desk who said just slap your last coat of paint on after it dries and your done. . I painted my trim prior to installing now I have to go through the entire house with oil base paint and go over every nail hole. Then I can paint you know if it ever dries fully. April 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JUNK! BEWARE! This stuff is garbage! Read the fine print on back (the writing is 1\16 big) 2 week dry time and cannot be sanded. I have a disaster on all my new trim in the whole house! No where on the front label says oil based. Whoever invented this stuff needs to be fired! December 20, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Make sure this is what you need... I really hated this stuff. Mainly because it was suggested to me as better than Spackle. If your application would benefit from a putty, then this is for you. It is a linseed oil based putty pretty much identical to glazier putty. You can shape it, stuff it somewhere and smooth it, but don't expect it to work nice and thin like regular Spackle. If you are fixing small cracks, scratches or very tiny depressions, stick to spackling compound. This stuff will just aggravate you for delicate sheet rock repairs. I think this would work well on exterior wood imperfections before painting or replacing glass in an old single pane window. August 26, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not what I was expecting This product is very thick. So thick I couldn't really use the putty knife to smack on the wall. Takes 48 hours to dry. August 31, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Impossible to work with. This is the consistency of silly putty (hence the name), which makes it really really hard to work with. It won't spread with a knife. It takes 7+ days to fully dry/cure. It leaves your hands and the surface oily. It can't be sanded. I'm REALLY struggling to find a use for this stuff. Run of the mill patch filler works 100 times better, 10 times faster, and is just as cheap. I tried to fill some large holes with the putty, planning on a small once over with joint compound to smooth it out... but it never really cured after 5 days. So I had to scrape it all out and stuff the hole with joint compound anyways. I would avoid this one. December 31, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Label Very Misleading The front label says "for filling nail holes, dents and cracks in wood surfaces". This product is not sand-able in 48 hours. I was expecting to be able to sand in a reasonable drying time. The front label says "exceptional paintability". The back label In the very small print that I needed a magnifying glass to read says paintable with latex based paint. But to read on you find out that you have to prime it first with an oil base paint. April 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for cracks and holes I used this putty to repair drywall cracking I get in my house when the temperature changes. I also used it to fill-in and repair holes from a flat-screen TV hangar I had installed. I have used other messy fillers before and like the putty the best. It is easy to prepare, manipulate and clean-up is a cinch. Its thickness is a major factor. Smoothing it over with a scraper was easy and their was no messy leftovers. After letting it dry for 48 hours I noticed no shrinkage and the paint applied and dried well. I will always keep some of this on hand for small drywall repairs and highly recommend it to other homeowners. December 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It is what it is.... If you need to fill nail holes or small defects in wood this works great. If you're wanting to use it for joint compound or large fill holes or cracks find something else more suited. To the "professional" had to ask a home depot employee anything, I would disregard his comment immediately. Product Description: DAP® Painter’s Putty’53’® is a smooth, easy-working putty designed for the special needs of professional painters. It is ideal for filling small holes and cracks in interior or exterior surfaces such as baseboards, windowsills and woodwork. It has exceptional adhesion and resists oil bleeding. DAP® Painter’s Putty ‘53’®may also be used to glaze wooden window sashes. ___________ **Product should be tooled and finished while wet, as product will not sand well. Allow skin to form before painting. October 19, 2014
