8 oz. Flex 'n Fill Premium Patching Paste is rated 2.1 out of 5 by 67.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zero stars!!!! So a home depot employee recommended this to me when I told her I had two long hairline cracks in my kitchen ceiling. I put it on lightly and expected to be able to sand it smooth when it dried. My ceiling is ruined! And so is my weekend! We've even tried an electric belt sander and it started pulling off chunks of drywall in the process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has to CURE before you can Sand it! otherwise you might as well be sanding bubblegum! All these idiots giving one star applied this product, waited 30 minutes until it was paintable then tried to sand it only to realize it was worthless because guess what... it hadn't cured yet and was still hardening. After 2 hours you can indent this product at 1/4" thick applications. I used it in place of a Veneer Plaster for a bathroom ceiling. it worked out flawlessly after 24 hours it sands just like normal gypsum plaster... It's perfect for an ultra smooth surface that's both strong and water tight unlike normal plaster sparkle which is not recommended for bathroom (steamy) applications.

How many bad reviews will it take before Home Depot stops selling this product. Looks like if you buy something you better come home and read reviews before you use it. You can not sand this stuff when dry. You pay money to buy it to fix a problem and it creates a bigger problem. DO NOT BUY THIS.

It literally says in big bold letters on the lid, "spackling paste". Yet this is what Gardner themselves have to say (in other comments here) about it: "This product is not intended to be used as traditional sparkle." (Yes. They said "sparkle". Kind of indicates just how much they care about their customers when they can't be bothered to check their spelling.) Then they even had the GALL to say, "Well, if you'd read the fine print on the SIDE about it, you would've known..." Seriously Gardner? We have to read the fine print to find out that your "Spackle" labeled and sold as "Spackle" can't be used as "Spackle?" So they sell a product called "spackle" that doesn't work as "spackle" and THEN say, "Oh well, don't use it as "sparkle" when it absolutely screws up your job. And then it's just on YOU (no refunds offered) to fix it. This stuff hardens to a rubbery concrete texture that is completely unsandable. We will literally be pulling down the drywall and putting new drywall back up. In the long run, this will be CHEAPER than the many manhours trying to "fix" this would cost us. This stuff is absolute garbage. Do not use it under any circumstances. Gardner has forever lost our business. There are plenty of other competitors out there that don't false advertise, and that actually seem to care about their customers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE!!! Zero Stars!!! I bought this while in the store (without reading any reviews) and found it horrible to work with. It isn't workable for long - wet knife or dry - and it shrinks a HUGE amount when it dries. What could be done in two coats with joint compund would take 4-5 with this. The first coat dried over six hours, and it was so hard a medium grit drywall sanding pad wouldn't touch it. Good thing I just had to knock down a couple very small peaks. As it was, I was already beginning to consider feathering the next coat to the high spots. Cleanup is ridiculous, too. It doesn't reconstitute in warm water as does most spackle or joint compund. It cleans off like nearly-set mastic - you almost have to scrape one knife with another. The label makes it sound like an awesome product. In reality, it is *absolute garbage*!

It has completely ruined a project that I've spent 100 hours building. It dries to the consitancy of concrete and cant be sanded or removed. I can't believe this is even in the same area as Spackle because it should be with the concrete products. NO WHERE on the container is there any mention of this. Home Depot should remove this product from the area it's in.

Must use it for the right application,it bonds extremely well,is very hard but still slightly flexible.It's difficult to sand so it must be applied smoothly,unlike regular spackle that sands very easy.It also shrinks a lot so it needs more than one coat if it put on thick.Great for repairing damaged trim because it's so strong and will stay in place.I love it but don't use it on everything.
