Can I drill into the putty after I filled the holes?

Asked by ttgirl1997 February 28, 2021

Answer

Happy to clear things up. Rust-Oleum Varathane Wood Putty will not harden, so it cannot be drilled into. Instead, we recommend using Rust-Oleum Varathane Wood Filler. It will dry hard enough for drilling into, but you would need to stain it. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-12-oz-Wood-Filler-340228/305626726? - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

I have gouge marks in my stained wood door trim from our dog’s scratching. Would you recommend a product to fill and stain the patch to match?

Asked by Duma January 23, 2021

Answers

Viewing the picture you sent those scratches don’t look bad. Prior to doing anything about your door trim, take your picture of the scratches and go to your local Home Depot paint area. The Associates in that Dept have the correct putty that you may need and they can match the stain.

Answers

Happy to help, Chery! The Rust-Oleum Varathane Wood Putty is ideal for use on minor defects after assembly and finishing of a surface. We recommend that any excess putty from the surrounding area be removed using a plastic putty knife or damp cloth. The product will not harden to a sandable surface; however, you can certainly use it on your interior door. We hope this helps! - Rust-Oleum Product Support 1

Happy to help, Mike. Rust-Oleum Varathane Wood Putty can not be sanded because it does not harden. If you need something you can sand and stain, then we suggest using Rust-Oleum Varathane Wood Filler instead. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-12-oz-Wood-Filler-340228/305626726 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

Answers

Great question, Kristie. We don't recommend using Rust-Oleum Varathane Wood Putty for that type of application as it will not harden. If the areas are just small cracks or holes, then you could use Rust-Oleum Varathane Wood Filler instead. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Varathane-12-oz-Wood-Filler-340228/305626726 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 5

Perfect Match
Had to reduce it a little bit of Paint Thinner, Life Saver! Perfect Match
by CDRemodelEP
Definitely not white
If your trim (or other wood item) is a true white, this filler isn't white. I stopped after 2 nail holes because instead of tiny holes (that you can tell are installation because they're all perfectly aligned), it looks like dirty holes. I like that it didn't dry as fast as the other fillers, but that's it. That said, I've had antique white trim and bright white filler stands out there too. Keep in mind though that this isn't antique white or ivory. It's a gray white.

Response from Rust-OleumSupportJan 2, 2019
Thank you for your feedback! Since the stain or paint used on the surface can vary from manufacture or wood species used, we recommend applying Rust-Oleum Varathane Wood Putty in a test area first to ensure the desired color.

3.75 ounce Varathane WHITE WOOD PUTTY. This white wood putty is designed to fill nail holes and defects in wood. Use as the final process in finishing wood projects, such as moulding installations,and window and door installations. This is an interior product. Rust-oleum is the parent company of Varathane which produces this excellent wood putty. The application couldn't be simpler, put some putty on your finger or a putty knife and press and swipe the hole. Complete the process by painting or staining.

This is a non-hardening putty, so you're not really supposed to sand this once applied. It's for filling small holes, like nail holes. I applied some to a small nick in a cheap cube storage bookshelf my wife bought years ago. After several moves, it had a small chip that came out of the side. Nothing major, but why not fix it if it's in our living room area? All I wanted was just enough coverage to not show the small cut and that was it. This worked as I planned. It was easy to apply and easy to work with. I'd compare the consistency to play dough. Looking at the cube storage from anything more than a couple feet away, and you can't tell that this product was applied at all, which is exactly what I wanted.
by Funkhowitzer
We had a hole in our dining room floor that I wanted to patch, and I decided to try some of this Varathane wood putty. I'm very satisfied with the results! It’s a super easy low mess wood putty that resembles the consistency of crafting clay before it is applied. PROS *Easy to use *Low mess *Inexpensive *Great container *Doesn't crack or shrink *Good instructions CONS *It does have a smell, but it isn't super strong and it dissipates pretty fast 5 out of 5 stars I recommend this product!

got one jar of this stuff and it goes a long way, i like the natural filler so stain will match with it blend better with the wood. the material is soft and pliable easy to use without need really for a putty knife. if tried it on several species of wood and it does blend well and except stain well. if it does not harden it should look good and last over time

I have a kitchen table that has been in my family for 33 years. Solid wood table, but it has some wear and tear on the table top. I wanted to patch up some small holes and got this putty in hopes that it would fix the table. I got two different colors so I could blend them. Followed the directions and mixed the two colors to match the varying colors on the table. The directions say it can't be sanded.

Color matching your hardwood floor is always a challenge. Glad I can get this in small sizes. I have used another brand basic wood putty that I was not happy with so I never finished filling in the holes. It flaked off from the floor and it just looked...well...awful. I tested this putty distributed by the "Rust-Oleum" company and I am very satisfied. The color didn't quite match but the quality of the putty is super. No flakes noticed and the putty blended smoothly. It was easy to apply and rub into the holes and gaps. The excess was easily cleaned up with my fingers. The putty despite not matching did "blend" into the floor gaps very nicely. No water needed to clean up, you can use a dry rag or your fingers or putty knife to wipe up the excess. I am finding that matching my unique hardwood stain quite a challenge. no one seems to make my stain :( So I mixed this putty with a cherry putty to try and get a closer color match and well that idea worked out with mixed results. The putty didn't really blend together well as I would have hoped but I did manage to achieve a closer color match of my hard wood floor but I would say it is easier to just get the closest pre-mixed color putty and use that color for filling in holes/gaps.

This review is on Varathane's Red Mahogany Wood Putty. This stuff really worked well on my red mahogany wood floor. The color of my floor was slightly fadded and luckily so was the color that came in the jar. It went on smoothly and dried (non hardening) rather quickly. Because it's non-hardening it cleans up very easily. The other unique thing that happened was that when I completely filled and lightly sanded the area smooth it actually looked exactly like a natural knot in the wood.
