A: Thank you for posting your inquiry. The DAP PATCH-N-PAINT is: ideal for filling holes, cracks, dents and defects on: drywall, plaster, brick, stucco and wood. Per package label and product literature: 1. Surface must be free of grease, oil and other foreign matter. 2. Stir thoroughly before use. (When using the 2.8 oz tube, remove top, grip tube bottom & twist up a very small amount (about 1/16”) of filler. Either apply directly to surface or using built-in spackling knife, scrape off spackling from top of tube & apply to wall) 3. Using a clean putty knife, press spackling into hole or crack. 4. Draw blade firmly across the surface to remove excess material in one strike. 5. For a smoother finish, dip putty knife into water and lightly smooth spackling. 6. One application is usually sufficient for small repairs. For repairs deeper than 1/8”, apply two or more layers allowing spackling to dry between applications. 7. May be painted within minutes with a latex paint. Please follow paint manufacturer’s instructions for application. 8. If sanding is desired, or if an oil-based paint is to be used, allow to dry thoroughly (approximately 24 hours).
