Asked by: renter
Yes. I stained it with minwax ipswich pine (red) and it changed color just like the pine wood did. Also it hard but sandable as well. I love using my handheld belt sander.

I'm confused, which is it: a flexible PUTTY that will expand and extract with exterior wood trim, or is it a rock hard FILLER that will crack and look terrible?

CAN THIS PRODUCT BE USED TO SEAL A 1"X 1/2" DEPRESSION CRACK IN WOOD FASCIA BOARD?
Asked by: Anonymous
Absolutely. I would do it. It will take a few coats. sand between each application and use a putty knife. You have about 20 minutes of working time (depends on temperature). Post a picture once you are done and painted.

DU-1 1 lb. Water Putty is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 27.

I have thrown out so many containers because they dried out, even when properly stored, I was beyond frustrated on the waste. So on my current remodel, I thought I would give this product a try. Well, I am sold! This stuff is so easy to work with and it doesn't shrink or crack! Yes, it is an added step that you have to mix it up, but this has its own benefit besides not wasting product (and money). You can make it the consistency needed for your current patch work. On the instructions, it recommends about 3 parts powder to 1 part water. I didn't have any thing to use to measure, so I just kept adding powder until I got the consistency I wanted. It was a smooth consistency that when you raised your putty knife it sat solidly. I used a coffee mug (only thing on hand) to mix it, but next time I will use a square/rectangle container to make it easier to mix and use (i.e., scrape off excess on the rim of the container). It was super easy to clean up with water.

I like it better than the other products available. I only use this for painted projects thought because it can't absorb stain like most hardwoods do. But it works great, makes a good bit, its cheap, and is easy to work with. It sands pretty well and takes an average amount of time to drive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I found this water putty at Home Depot and couldn't be happier. I wanted a product I could put on my kitchen walls and make it look like old European plaster. I did this 6 years ago, painted it and everyone wanted to know how and what. I recently had a pipe break under my kitchen sink and, long story short, my kitchen had to be rebuilt from the floor up. The only part of the kitchen that made it through the disaster was the Durhams Water Putty. The repair crew had to tear out the old walls but I used the same finish, painted and it looks like fine old plaster. I expect it to last for another 6+ years. I am a senior and it was easy to use, easy to clean up and fast drying…was delighted I could still find it for sale.

It is in powder form and very easy to mix. You mix what you need so it never dry out like other paste. It is MADE IN U.S.A but it is cheaper than Made in China of other companies. Thank Durham

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff You decide the consistency by how much water you add. I added a little vinegar like the container said. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I repaired a thumb size broken front corner of the base of an expensive statue. I made a fairly thick solution and used a putty knife to form the corner. I wiped up any excess with a damp paper towel I give it 24 hours to dry but I'm sure it didn't need that much time. The instructions do not say exactly how much time is needed due to the varying amount of water and powder used by an individual. It came out solid and smooth, I hardly needed to sand. The paint dried quickly. It's almost impossible to see the repair. In fact it all blended so well I don't even need to paint the entire base it all matches. This is a great product, easy to work with, it dried smooth and hard and painted well. I don't usually write reviews but I was so pleased I wish I could attach a photo.. It's nice to purchase an inexpensive product that actually does what it says it does.

It's easy to use and the container allows for a long shelf life. I patched the knots in my deck and then painted it. Wow, how amazing my deck looks now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great stuff. I have rental houses and deal with holes in almost anything- hollow core doors, sheetrock or plaster walls, wood paneling, kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities. You name it, a tenant has made a hole in it. This stuff is cheap, I can throw it in the trunk and carry it for months without worrying about it going bad from too much heat or too much cold, and I can mix up just what I need. Dries fast, which is good for whatever you're fixing but can be a drawback if you don't work fairly fast.
